Kingston Arms Tourney Hand-and-a-Half Knightly Sword (Blunt) 41.25" Overall, Wood Core Scabbard - SM36040
CISM36040: Tourney Hand-and-a-Half Knightly Sword - Blunt
A close recreation of the famous Oakeshott Type XVIII sword from Records of the Medieval Sword with some liberties taken to make it safe for reenactment and stage use. This sword proves to be a powerful sight on the field of battle and is a perfect accompaniment for a 14th to mid 15th Century man of war.
The Tourney Series Medieval Swords from Kingston Arms will set a new standard at this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened thru-tang stainless steel pommel, and guard, 2mm rounded edge thickness makes these brutal weapons on the battlefield. 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 the blade to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword. Further Tourney Series models are the Viking Sword and Single-hand swords.
The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to about 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. This 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.
