The Reeve Limited Edition Medieval Sword (Oakeshott Type X) Prior to the Norman invasion of England the Anglo-Saxons lived in rural communities called tuns. (Tun is the source of the modern English word town.) At some point before the year 700 they decided to systematize their methods of fighting by forming a system of local self-government based on groups of ten. Each tun divided into groups of ten families called tithings. The elected leader of each tithing was called a tithingman. The tithings were also arranged in tens. Each group of ten tithings (or a hundred families) elected its own chief. The Anglo-Saxon word for chief was gerefa which later became shortened to reeve. The local reeve's power as a community official and military leader extended well after the Norman conquest of England. The Reeve sword is dedicated to those daughty ancient leaders. The sword is classified as an Oakeshott Type X. Oakeshott describes the typical Type X as a broad flat blade of medium length with a fuller running the entire length and fading out an inch or so from the point. Though the point is narrow enough for thrusting this is principally a cutting sword designed for use against opponents in mail armour. A Limited Edition Hand Crafted Collectible Sword This sword is offered in a limited edition of only 100 collectible swords worldwide. Name That Sword Contest Winner: Preston Allen Williams"This sword gives an impression of authority while being appropriate to the late Viking and Anglo-Saxon era as well as the early Norman. The name Reeve establishes this authority and perfectly suits this swords transitional nature as the office served the Anglo-Saxons the Norwegian Kings of England (Cnut and Sven) and the Normans."

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).
