    This medieval arming, or short sword features a blade that swells slightly at the top to put more weight in the hand to improve its cut and thrust capabilities, making for a very fast sword. The furniture is steel and the grip is wood covered in leather. A very effective and important sword. Includes matching scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be seen in E. Oakeshott's book "Record of the Medieval Sword". Can be sharpened for additional fee.

    First sword I received after ordering was slightly deformed and had a laser etched "Made by Windlass" in the blade. I was very upset but after contacting customer service I received a new replacement without the laser etching right away. No hassle and Windlass paid for shipping both ways. Excellent customer service. Oh and the sword is a gem. Feels great in hand and well made. It's going to be a future custom project and is already one of my favorites. Would definitely buy again.

    I ordered the Sword of Courtenuova,but received this one instead. Can't complain, this one is more expensive! Super light and fast. Seems very well built.
