The Bastard

(Oakeshott Type XVa)

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. These swords will not be sold sharp, unless otherwise requested by the customer (sharpening available for a small additional fee.).The grip is of stabilized birch, wrapped with black leather.
