Oakeshott XVIa Medieval Sword - The Bastard
The classic hand and half medieval bastard sword made to battlefield specifications but equally at home on display. Fitted with a ribbed leather grip and leather scabbard.
All of our European swords are hand-forged (not stamped or CNC'ed) by the same craftsmen that make our Japanese arms. The fullers are carved and burnished by hand for crisp and accurate lines. Forging allows our smiths to control the cross-sectional geometry to provide the proper stiffness of a cut and thrust blade. European production weaponry gets the craftsmanship it deserves.
