English Two-Hand Sword


Be the first to review this product

Two handed swords were the scourge of late medieval battlefields. Due to their slender blades. these dreaded cutting weapons were also able to deliver well-placed thrusts. The wide crossguard with rounded finials has an elaborate langet and the solid, riveted fish tail pommel makes this English two handed sword extremely well-balanced. The relatively angular grip is wrapped with dark violet leather, which adds a special touch to its simple elegance. This edged weapon is a replica of sword number IV.1787 from the Royal Armories in the Tower of London.
