OVERVIEW

This one handed medieval 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, 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 and/or personalized with 3 Initials for additional fees.

This sword is one of my favorite swords ever. It's well balanced, long, and comfortable; one of the best blades that I own.

A great representation of 12th century blade. Great handling, seems to cut through the air and anything else with ease.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

A classic for sure!
This is a quality sword. Well put together and very beautiful. It seems a bit more blade heavy than it needs to be but not a deal breaker. Hard to go wrong with this sword!
