Description

A broad blade that tapers to a sharp point a short grip and a bold and broad cross guard makes swords of type XIV easily recognized in art from around 1275-1340. They are as a rule compact and powerful swords usually with noble lines. Our sword the Sovereign has an accentuating flaring of the width at the base of the blade and carries an unique set of double fullers. Fullers like these are effective in reducing weight while retaining a high stiffness on thin and wide blades. Because of its relative shortness this sword is quick and responsive with a pleasant blade presence inviting both short chopping cuts sweeping blows and precise thrusts. A sword like this would be very effective in sword and buckler fighting as seen in the I:33 manuscript dated to around 1300. The steel cross is wide with crisply sculpted bevels and a slight cusp in the middle. The deep pommel of bronze is of the wheel type with a recess in the central boss (the pommel is also available in steel.). In this an owner could affix an enamel disc with his personal coat of arms or some other signifying mark or symbol. Sometimes recessed pommels were used as reliquaries on swords of outstanding importance. Dimensions (approximate): Total length: 34.25"(87 cm) Blade length: 27.75"(71 cm) Blade width: 3"(7.4 cm) CoG: 4"(10 cm) CoP: 17.65"(44.8 cm) Weight: 2 lbs 11 0z (1.22 kilos) Please specify either a bronze or steel pommel. This sword is offered in a limited edition of 1000 swords worldwide.
