Description

Crecy was one of the most decisive battles of the 100 Years War. After the battle of Sluys Edward III landed in Normandy in July 1346 with about 10000 men. The French pursued. Edward III decided to halt near Crecy in Normandy and to prepare for battle the next day. However the French vanguard made contact and started to attack without the benefit of a plan. The French made as many as 15 attacks and the English checked each one in turn primarily thanks to the English longbowmen. In the end the French were decimated and the English had a decisive victory. The Crecy is one type of sword that would have seen service on both sides during the 100 Years War. Oakeshott describes the Type XVIa as having a long tapering blade broad at the hilt with a sharp often reinforced point. The Crecy is a fine example of a later period epee de guerre or war sword a refinement of the earlier XIIa in response to changes in the armour of the period.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
