    The sword features dynamic handling qualities and during dry-handling exercises it transitions easily from ward to attack. While the sword's distribution of mass provides for a fairly lively feel, the weakest part of the sword's handling lies in its point control. It does a tiny amount of wandering during the thrust and does not follow the point as well as most swordsmen would be accustomed to: but this is a common (if not universal) problem with 13th century (and earlier) designs. Such issues were not truly corrected until the 1400’s, so, in essence its drawbacks emphasize the true-to-life accuracy of this functional reproduction. It is what it is: an archetype of the western sword’s evolution, but not an exemplar of the zenith of that evolution, which was still to come.

    The pommel and crossguard have been investment cast from mild steel. As with the originals, these components are rather plain and lack significant detailing. But on this sword, this creates an interesting aesthetic visage, as the visual focus is then placed upon the blade's nice fullering. The sword's grip has been tightly bound with leather, it has a slightly flattened exterior with handsomely executed stitching on one side. The result is a gripping surface that is both attractive and secure, yet is not overly abrasive to the hand.

    1. Very Happy

      Thank you so much my son was over the moon with the sword. on 23rd Mar 2017

    2. Amazing sword!

      i had my doubts honestly i did but when this sword arrived i was blown away by it. its a lot bigger than i thought but meets the specs, its got some weight to it but for me its not too heavy, full tang and razor sharp when i unwrapped it which reminds me, the packaging was heavy cardboard stapled together and the sword and scabbard were both wrapped up too which shows how much care was put making sure it got to me in one piece. this is a true example of bang for ya buck and for $225 it is awesome if anything its got more bang haha. i couldn't be happier with this sword. you guys have hit the nail on the head with this fine blade, if your unsure about whether to get this sword i say go for it!, it didn't take long for it to get to me but i also live in Australia where Medieval Shoppe is based so im not sure how long it would take to get to somewhere like America or England.
      i would most certainly recommend this sword it has great qualities. now which sword should i get now...boromir sword? or viking sword?.
      well done medieval shoppe, well done :)
