This sword features a brass and polished wooden hilt. Blade is tempered and made out of 18-gauge EN45 spring steel. This high quality constructed sword by Deepeeka is usable for reenactments or a collectors piece. The arming sword was the standard military sword of the medieval knight. The term came into use to differentiate the standard single handed sword from other recently developed types such as the war sword and great sword. Typically used with a shield or buckler, however there are many texts and pictures depicting effective arming sword combat without the benefit of a shield. According to Medieval texts, in the absence of a shield the empty (normally left) hand could be used for grabbing or grappling opponents. The arming sword was overall a light, versatile weapon capable of both cut and thrust combat, and normally boasted excellent balance. After the longsword came to predominate, the arming sword was retained as a common sidearm but came to be referred to as a shortsword. Later evolving into the cut & thrust swords of the Renaissance. The arming sword (also sometimes called a knight's or knightly sword) is a type of European sword with a straight double edged blade of around 27 to 32 inches. In common use from the 11th to 16th centuries. Specifications: Blade Length : 31" Blade Width. (Widest): 1.8" Overall Length : 38" You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase this item.
