Description

The Chevalier Limited Edition Medieval Sword (Oakeshott Type Xa) The Chevalier is named after the French term for"knight"(from the French cheval = horse; Old French chevalier; from Late Latin caballrius horseman; Middle English chevaler; Modern English cavalier.) A classic Medieval cruciform sword in design with its long blade this would have excelled as a horseman's sword. The Chevalier is classified as an Oakeshott Type Xa. Oakeshott describes the typical Type Xa as a broad flat blade of medium length with a narrow fuller (narrower than a typical Type X but not as narrow as a Type XI) running the entire length of the blade. The Chevalier's blade is inspired by a beautiful sword in the Wallace Collection (London) with a hollow-ground cross-section. Scholars generally have dated this sword to the 14th century but Oakeshott in Records of the Medieval Sword argues that it is probably much earlier -- between 1050 and 1150 AD. The hilt design is inspired by the famous miniature by Matthew Paris (a Benedictine monk and chronicler) c 1250.

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
