Description

8A sword of type XII according to Oakeshott´s typology is defined by having a broad and evenly tapering blade. It should have a good point and a fuller that is 2/3 to 3/4 of the blade length. This is perhaps the most classic of all blade styles. So much so that it is close to being the very archetype of the European knightly sword. We wanted this sword to be an homage to those splendid examples of the ancient sword makers art. A weapon that is broad and bold with understated elegance in shapes lines and volumes. The heft of the sword is managed by an effective use of nonlinear distal taper and a deep and well defined fuller. This results in a lively and responsive feel that invites you to strike with the sword. The pommel of this sword is of type J: a deep wheel pommel with concave bevels. It is crowned by a high rivet block. The cross is a version of style 2: a straight type of octagonal section that swell at the ends and in the middle. The outer third of the blade towards the point curves gradually to a sharp point. This gives a visual balance to the broad base of the blade and also helps in establishing sweet handling characteristics.

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.
