Overview


This sword is an Oakeshott Type X with a Type I pommel and a Type VII crossguard. The long and wide fuller on this blade lightens the overall sword and make it possible to deliver fast and shearing cuts, capable of cutting through the mail and padding that were worn during the period. The long guard offers good protection from an opponent's shield or blade, while the classic wheel pommel brings the sword very nicely into balance.

This type of sword was in service for a long period of time throughout all of Europe. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Includes scabbard, can be sharpened for additional fee.

Can be personalized with 3 Initials.

This is a very impressive sword, especially at this price. Well balanced, easy to use despite being 3 lbs. I ordered it sharpened and it came very sharp. A great deal on a basic, classic medieval sword.

Outstanding!  This is a really impressive medieval sword, and it was well sharpened.  And, it arrived earlier than expected.

Happy with this sword, especially considering the price point. Ordered sharpened (and came very sharp), is maybe on the heavier side but not overly so, but handles well considering what it is, quality is unbelievable for the price, and overall I would recommend it for a serious entry level sword. Glad MRL is still producing these!

If you're looking for a good beginning sword, this is it. This is a beater you can use for cutting or other hard use. You can't beat this sword for the money.
From: Terry, July 24, 2016
This sword has a nice balance near the handle which is good because the sword is about 3 pds.
I am very pleased with its strength, look and feel.
From: Gregory, July 06, 2015
This is a hefty blade. The sword is well-designed, and the workmanship is solid. The point of balance is near the hilt; so it doesn't feel heavy in the hand, despite the 3-lb weight, which is at the high end of a functional one-handed sword. The disengage still feels pretty quick. This is definitely designed to be a functional tool for war. The pictures don't really do it justice.

Just got this today and I am very happy with the sword itself. Well balanced and easy to wield. Only problem I have is with the personal engraving I had done on it. It came with rust already on the middle initial. Worried that if I sand it off it will ruin the engraving. The sharpening service was extraordinary though. Recommend this for any collection.

Very well made. Once sharpened this sword holds the edge.
From: Thomas, August 03, 2011
Truly a work of art.
From: Jacob, October 14, 2010
This Sword has one of the best balanced and well forged blades. It is extremely light and comfortable, so when it is easy to use.
From: Jacy, July 05, 2010
A great representation of 12th century blade. Great handling, seems to cut through the air and anything else with ease.
From: Jacob, April 18, 2010
This sword is one of my favorite swords ever. It's well balanced, long, and comfortable; one of the best blades that I own.

Medieval Double Wrap Belt

From the early B.C. Celts to well past the Renaissance, warriors figured out that a double wrap belt was a more comfortable way to carry a sword. But it was in Medieval times that the practice really flourished. When the extra length of belt wraps around a body the second time, both hips then support the weight of the sword. Besides the balanced suspension, this belt presents a swashbuckling appearance. Includes a frog hanger that will fit all scabbards. Made of beautiful top grade leather it is 1-3/4" wide. The Medieval Belt is available in brown with brass or black with nickel silver studs and buckle. Choose from S (28"-35"), M (33"-40"), L (38"-45") or XL 43" - 50"). All sizes are approximate.
