Kingston Arms Tourney Arming Sword (Blunt) 37" Overall, Leather Wrapped Scabbard - SM36030
CISM36030: Tourney Arming Sword - Blunt
Kingston Arms Tourney Series sparring and stage swords will set a new standard in re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened stainless steel pommel and guard, 0.07" rounded edge thickness make this a great prop accessory. The cord wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armored hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of both pieces to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword.
The blade is forged from 9260 spring steel and is tempered to around 50HRC, providing a long lasting sword.
The guard needs special mention, featuring the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. The process keeps the guard from going loose after a lengthy campaign without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck.
