    Circa 1200-1300
    This original magnificent sword can be seen in Madrid at the Institute del Conde de Valencia de Don Juan and is referenced in many of Ewart Oakeshott’s books as a supreme example of a Type XII sword. He aptly describes it as being “Sweet and well-balanced in the hand, as it is beautifully proportioned.” The tough, 1085 high carbon steel blade has a full tang and is fully tempered, then peened over the pommel. Pommel has red/black wave pattern leather inset. Parts are intricately cast brass with an antique finish. The Latin script around the pommel reads AVE MARIA PLENA GRATIA while the cross guard has Spanish script DIOS ES VINCENTOR EN TOD on one side and O DIOS ES VINCENTOR EN TODO A on the other. Grip is wood covered in rich red leather, then cross-hatched with black leather strips and brass tacks for a unerring grip. Includes heavy grade scabbard and custom long belt set with solid antiqued metal fittings. Can be sharpened for an additional fee, made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    Great sword, well made with a tight scabbard. Only one problem, the scabbard is too tight! It takes two grown men to draw and resheathe the blade.
