Description

The Torino Sword was designed by Mr. Chester Grayson who was the victor of our sword design contest in the historical sword category. From the original design Generation 2 . now Legacy Arms . painstakingly brought every detail to life all the way down to the intricate wire wrap and the detailed notches in the crossguard. This is by far one of the most detailed swords ever produced by Gen 2 Legacy Arms.

A word on it's design:
"By the 15th century . swords were beginning to become more than just weapons - they were testaments to the quality of their makers and so many smiths experimented with new designs and styles that had not previously been used. Rather than plain and simple like their predecessors . these newer swords . while still functional . were works of art in their own right. This sword in particular has particular historical example that inspired it . but is instead a semi-plausible mixture of several different stylistic ideas that would have been prevalent."

The first prototype was exact to the specifications as captured on paper. After bringing it to life and a very thorough review a few changes were implemented to enhance handling and aesthetics:
- Hollow grind the blade to make it lighter
- Thin out the handle in thickness and width
- Make the pommel slightly larger to pull the center of gravity towards the hilt

The final result is a sword that matches beauty with function and will be the focal point of any collection.

Specifications:
Blade Length: 32 1/4"
Handle Length: 9 1/2"
Grip Length: 6 1/2"
Weight: 3 lbs. 7 oz.
POB: 3 3/4" Below Hilt
