The Bayeux is named for the famous Tapestry depicting the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Nothing is known for certain about the tapestry's origins. The first written record of the Bayeux Tapestry is in 1476 when it was recorded in the cathedral treasury at Bayeux as"a very long and narrow hanging on which are embroidered figures and inscriptions comprising a representation of the conquest of England".

The Bayeux Tapestry was probably commissioned in the 1070s by Bishop Odo of Bayeux half-brother of William the Conqueror. It is over 70 meters long and although it is called a tapestry it is in fact an embroidery stitched not woven in woolen yarns on linen. Some historians argue that it was embroidered in Kent England. The original tapestry is on display at Bayeux in Normandy France.

The Bayeux 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.

This is a classic design for Norman or Early Crusader era sword simple yet elegant and brutal.

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).
