Crecy Single Handed Knights Sword 5160 Steel Live Blade

$550.00 $645.00

The Battle of Crecy is known as one of most prominent of the Hundred Years War and one of the most decisive victories of the English over the French. Though the success was wrought mainly by wood instead of steel, the Crecy War Sword by Kingston Arms represents a considerable amount of time and research in to the specifications of single hand swords of the period, particularly from museum pieces and tapestries. Explicitly crafted to CAS specifications, the Crecy War Sword features a traditional thru-tang, peened pommel handle construction. The forged hollow-ground blade possesses a prominent central ridge that tapers the full length of the 32” blade providing support for the cutting edge. The 4 3/8” cord-wrapped leather grip is counter balanced by the stainless pommel for comfortable single-hand fighting. The stainless arched guard pays homage to the English longbow men who drew victory in the sites of the English King, Edward III. The Crecy Sword comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard and stainless chape.

5160 Steel

5160 has achieved an excellent reputation for its toughness and resilience, particularly in larger knife blades and sword blades, where shock absorption is a requirement. Careful heat treating of a 5160 blade can produce a hard edge section and a softer core, an excellent characteristic in hacking blades.

5160 Steel Composition: 0.61C 0.94Mn 0.88Cr
