Limited Edition Medieval Sword
We named this sword in honor of the professional soldiers of the15th century -- men without a country who sold their swords to the highestbuyer in the numerous wars between countries and city-states of the period.This is a plain, no nonsense version of our Type XVa, well-suited for use bysuch a pragmatic soldier of fortune.This is a short and handy hand and a half sword with a very stiff blade,primarily for thrusting, but pretty decent for cutting as well. When you handlethese swords they are very ready in your hand. One of the quickest types there is, as it follows your intentions atquicksilver like speed. Because of the very narrow point the spine can be madequite thick without the blade becoming cumbersome. This makes for superiorstiffness and a very effective thrust.
