A knight was expected to have not only the strength and skills to face combat in the violent Middle Ages but was also expected to temper this aggressive side of a knight with a chivalrous side to his nature. These sacred oaths of combat were combined with the ideals of chivalry and with strict rules of etiquette and conduct. When heading into battle most Knights adorned their armor and were equipped with a lance and sword. The arming sword or knightly sword is the single handed cruciform sword of the High Middle Ages, in common use between ca. 1000 and 1350, possibly remaining in rare use into the 16th century. This Knightly sword is made from carbon steel with a straight cruciform cross-guard and circular pommel. The grip is wood that has been smoothed and stained with a spiral design. A fuller runs down the middle almost the entire length of the blade. This sword is full tang and battle ready with a peened pommel. Peening is the method historically used for most of the pre-industrial era. It fixes the pommel permanently to the tang. This durable blade is strong and ready for re-enactments or tournaments. Included is a wooden scabbard with a rexin wrap and steel locket and chape. Finish off a costume or star in a play with this amazing historical replica. Overall Length in Scabbard: 41 Inches.
