This is a fully finished costume sword cast out of epoxy resin. It is a historical re-creation of an early medieval (pre 1200) Arming Sword often referred to as a Knightly Sword.
The lettering engraved in the blade refer to the Oakeshott System of classification for swords.
The Blade is of type XII (early one handed arming or knightly sword) – 32.5″
The Guard is of type 3 – 8″
The Grip is round leather wrapped and is 5.25″
The Pummel is of type A (Brazil-nut)
This type of sword would be used by knights in the days before full plate armor. It would be used as a side arm and would be accompanied by a shield in combat.
This casting is of durable and hard epoxy resin. It is slightly flexible but strong and very hard. This sword would be great for a costume or a prop in a play or film. Because it is plastic it may be acceptable as a costume weapon at conventions.
Warning – This is not a practice sword. It will not withstand blows.
