Type XIV 13th Single Handed Knights Arming Sword 9260 Steel Live Blade

$595.00 $645.00

The second in a series of performance oriented swords designed by Gus Trim and produced by Kingston Arms, this early 13th Century style arming sword has a very slight forward balance... making it quick in the hand and devastating in the cut.

Based on Oakeshott's Type XIV specification these swords were used in the 13th to early 14th Century in that transitional period from mail armor to the full on plate worn in the 15th Century. This sword is therefore more cut oriented than later period swords with a more acute point than earlier examples. This melding of cut and thrust ability coincides perfectly with use of the sword and shield or buckler of the time.  Features a hand forged and heat treated, full tang 9260 steel blade with a leather covered timber scabbard.
