Limited Edition Medieval War Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVa)
is named for the battle of Agincourt, October 25, 1415, where the exhausted,
sick and starving English army of Henry V was faced by a confident French
foe outnumbering them four to one. Forced into battle and against all
odds, they defeated the French and slaughtered the flower of French nobility.
This sword is a tribute to that stunning conflict and is one type of sword
that would have seen service on both sides.
Oakeshott describes the Type XV as a strongly tapering, acutely pointed
blade of flattened diamond cross-section. The sub-type XVa is often longer
and slimmer than the Type XV, but with the primary difference being the
longer grip. This type of sword was referred to as an epée bâtarde
or "bastard sword."
The blade is hand-ground from high-carbon steel to a fine satin finish,
heat-treated by hand for maximum flexibility and to take a fine edge.
These swords are sold sharp, unless otherwise requested by the customer.
Some customers like to place period coins, religious symbols or heraldry
markers inside the pommel recess. The dimension of the recess are: width:
0.655", depth: 0.145".
