Oakeshott describes the Type XIX as a broad flat blade that has clearly chamfered edges that run nearly parallel a fuller that runs through the upper third and a flat ricasso section at the base of the blade. The blade is of hexagonal cross-section Name That Sword Contest Winner: Preston Allen Williams "Name this sword Kern after the Irish light infantry that comprised the vast bulk 16th cent. Irish armies and were known to use swords and small shields in addition to spears javelins and bows." Specifications TBA This sword is offered in a limited edition of 100 swords worldwide
