Description

Early Medieval Sword Blunt Trainer designed by Michael `Tinker` Pearce and reproduced by Hanwei to his specifications.

These Early Medieval Swords are typical of the 13th - 14th century single hand swords but the Type XII blade was known to be in use from as early as the late Viking era. The Blunt trainer is an exceptional match for I.33 sword and buckler study.

The swords meet Tinker`s exacting quality requirements and are built in much the same way as his custom pieces. Each blade is forged from 5160 Spring Steel Marquenched to the desired hardness of 50-53 Hrc while the tang is drawn back to the low 30s Hrc. For the Medieval models the very end of the tang is threaded to fit a 5mm allen nut recessed into the pommel which allows for dismantling of the hilt assembly for inspection to exchange blades if needed and for anyone wanting to easily customize their grip. Also the Sharp and Blunt blades are interchangeable on all Medieval models. The grips are cord wrapped and leather covered wood and tapered for a comfortable grip. Each sword is supplied with a leather covered wood scabbard with metal throat and chape.

Made by Hanwei.
