This sword is a replica of number A477 from the famed Wallace Collection. Primarily a cutting sword, with a wide blade that has a flattened oval cross section that gives very little resistance in a cutting blow. A perfect example of a true bastard sword. The proportions of the sword are that of a one handed sword, but with a slightly longer grip and a pommel shape that will allow two hands to be used. The grip is wood covered in cord and leather. The long quillion has  a decorative finial on the end and the side rings provide good hand protection. Well tempered high carbon steel blade by Windlass Steelcrafts. Scabbard with antiqued parts included. Note: To be consistent with the original, the antique finish is  hand applied and will vary between swords.
  • Overall: 38-3⁄4
  • Blade: 30" long, 2-1⁄8" wide, 3⁄16" thick
  • Wt: 3 lbs/10 oz

Seems a bit blade heavy for the length but overall, it has a nice solid feel

Overall a good sword, its solid and it is well made. I like that MRL has made a sword in this style because it is not often done. I would say its primary flaw is its weight. It feels somewhat heavy for its size. Recommended overall.

I have to say, this is my all time favorite weapon. Nicely balanced, feels great in the hand, and beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, the millions and the rest of the guard (including the tongue and throat on the standard) are rusting quickly. I managed to remove the rust, but the finnish is going and the rust quickly returns. Even with that being a problem, I still love this sword.
