Sir William Marshal Sword-Folded Steel
Our single-hand Marshal Sword sets (SH2000, SH2001 - Damascus) new standards of quality and authenticity in broadsword construction. The sword is based on an original, now in a British museum, used by one of England’s finest knights, Sir William Marshal, who served the crown faithfully under Henry II, Richard the Lionheart and Jack Lackland.The single-hand Marshal Sword is available with either a forged high-carbon steel blade (Model SH2000) or a forged - folded Swedish powder steel blade (Model SH2001). Both blades are identical in handling characteristics and both are tempered to a tough HRC 52.
The blade section features a central ridged fuller and full-length distal taper - a tough test for the bladesmith but resulting in a superb combination of speed and strength.
The grip is leather wrapped and laced and the guard and pommel are elegant in their functional simplicity.
The scabbard is leather-covered with steel mounts.
Truly a sword for the connoisseur.
