Medieval Single Handed Sword - John Barnett


Medieval single-handed swords, often known as knightly swords or arming swords, are characterised by a straight blade with a double edge, followed by a cruciform hilt. During the late Medieval period, these became more popular as a sidearm. 

Approximate specifications are as follows: 

Steel: EN45 spring steel
Full length: 101.5cm
Blade length: 84cm
Weight: 1.292kg
Blade: Blunt

This is not moisture resistant steel, therefore the blade must be kept dry and regularly oiled to keep in top condition.
