Circa 1480
This sword rests in the Schloss Erbach Armoury and is a fine example of a high medieval/renaissance sword (classified as an Oakeshott type XVIII A). This is truly a beautiful example of a bastard sword, effective in the cut and the thrust. The steel parts are highly decorative and the high carbon steel blade is lightly hollow ground, giving the sword a great feel with one or two hands. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Includes scabbard. Can be seen in Records Of The Medieval Sword by Ewart Oakeshott.
  • Overall: 43-1⁄4"
  • Blade: 34" long, 2-1⁄4" wide, 3⁄16" thick
  • Wt: 3 lbs

the blade is way too thin, i was flexing it and i bent it rather easily, now it is just a wall hanger. this would be a perfect sword if they had just made the blade thicker.
