Edition Medieval Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVa)
this sword in honor of the professional soldiers of the 15th century --
men without a country who sold their swords to the highest bidder 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 by such
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
handle these swords they are very ready in your hand.
One of the quickest types there is, as it follows your intentions at quicksilver
like speed. Because of the very narrow point the spine can be made quite
thick without the blade becoming cumbersome. This makes for superior stiffness
and a very effective thrust.
