This medieval Acre Crusader Broadsword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a formidable weapon of proven worth. This classic knightly sword was idea for sword and shield or sword and buckler combat whether on foot or horseback. The Acre crusader sword is a stout and fearsome blade that takes advantage of its heft, width, and center and gravity to deliver deadly slashing cuts and hacking blows as well as thrusts. One can easily imagine how this weapon shredded both mail and leather armors across Europe and Asia-minor for centuries. With a wide cross-guard of over 8"  it's no sword for the softhearted or weak-spirited. Its practical cruciform hilt with single-hand grip and disc pommel was to be the functional model for countless other sword styles to follow. To know why and how the Medieval warrior became so successful you could do no better than starting with this blade. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

Disappointed to find that the weapon, though finely crafted is NOT crafted in the states but crafted in India. Also, on my particular weapon, the guard was opening to seat it over the tang was a lot larger than it needed to be and I find that to be a sign of sloppy craftsmanship. It is secured appropriately so that it doesn't move around but I can visualize it breaking free after use and falling down the length of the blade at some time or rattling back and forth on the tang. For all the hype about "hands-on craftsmanship" going on with this series, I expected a lot more from it. Nothing about this blade or craftsmanship stands out from any normal rating so I give them 3 stars. If I had known more about this series going into my purchase I'm not sure I would have made the same investment.

This is my first sword from Windlass, but it seems to be a really nice good quality sword for a reasonable price.

I love this sword. This is my 3rd sword from the Battlecry series, and they never cease to impress. The second I unwrapped and cleaned it, I could easily see something like this chopping off limbs, heads, and any other appendages on long ago battlefields. It's a hefty blade, but straight out of the box it's razor sharp. My only quarrel is that it's a little stiff to pull out and put in the scabbard, but a little breaking in will fix that nicely, and it's no reason to take any stars away from what is an excellent sword. I'd have paid 3 times what I paid for this sword. It's already been used for chopping some milk jugs and old watermelons, and it performed admirably. Thank you again, Museum Replicas. You've delivered an amazing piece of steel once again.

Great sword. I wanted something that was shaped like a REAL sword, not all the fantasy toys that I tend to see. Was really happy to get this, traditional feel with a slightly modern black color effect gives it just enough attitude.
