The Regent

(Oakeshott Type XVIIIb)

This sword is inspired by the beautiful long swords favored in areas of Germanic influence during the mid to late 15th century. It has a long hollow ground blade with edges that arc gracefully to an acute point. The raised midrib gives this blade a good stiffness for its weight while the keen edges are crisp and well defined. The blade is a classic example of a type classified as Oakeshott XVIIIb (according to The Sword in the Age of Chivalry), combining efficient width at the cutting section with a strong awl-shaped point. The grip is of hexagonal section and has the typical waisted profile. Its hilt is inspired by that on a sword found in the Boden See (dated to the mid 15th C), kept at the Landesmuseum, Zürich. The pommel is of Type V, a flamboyant version of the fishtail style. The cross is slim with an octagonal section and clubbed ends and can be classified as a version of cross style 2 according to Oakeshott’s system. This is the goal for this design: a quick, responsive and efficient cutter with a forward pivot point placed close to the point. A hollow ground blade can have a thick and stiff spine and still be relatively light for its size. This is an important aspect of this design. The Regent is also available with a period half-wire wrap (at an additional charge.) Please be sure to specify which grip you prefer at the time of order.
