OVERVIEW

This type of sword was in service for a long period of time throughout all of Europe. 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 makes 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. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp. Includes scabbard.

Can be personalized with 3 Initials for additional fees.

Elegantly Utilitarian
Basic, utilitarian and elegant in it's own right. This sword feels good in the hand and is a lot of fun to swing. Combined with the sharp edge from MR, it makes quick work of gallon jugs, and looks good doing it. A nice addition to my collection, and is hard to beat for the price point.

Great for the price
I bought this sword a wile back on another site wish I got it on this one it’s a little weighty might tire you out swinging it to much better bulk up but that’s what I like about it it’s wide blade is esthetically pleasing if I were to say there were any flaws is that it rusts easier than I thought but that’s an easy fix just keep it well oiled over all it was a great purchase especially for the price

Generically Perfect
If that makes sense. There's nothing unique or striking about this sword -- it's a classic design, hard to mess up, and Windlass delivers. The sword is historically accurate visually, but listen to everyone who's handled it when they say it's heavy, because it is HEAVY. Forget about fancy swordplay, this thing is meant to lob stuff off or crush bone.

Super Sword & Scabbard
Wanted this sword for my collection for a long time. Finally got one! Exactly as advertised, great condition - no blemishes, scabbard fits exactly. Order processed super fast, and packing very secure. Thanks again MR for an excellent weapon.

Knight's choice
Any medieval period knight would have loved this piece. It is a good period representation. If I had a chance to convert a one handed blade into a hand and a half, bastard type sword this would be the choice. For a one hander this is a big blade. Very wide and no taper. Also the circular pommel bites into the palm if you try to use a second hand. Fig style pommels and other tapered style pommels alleviate this. If I could have this blade and cross piece with a hand and a half handle and a fig style pommel that would be one hell of a piece.

Really good sword
I have bought a few examples from different manufacturers of swords.  This is one of the better ones that I have.  The fit and finish is good.  The design is great.  The fact that this sword is "Battle Ready" is a cool plus.  I most likely will never need to use it as a weapon, but it is nice to know I could.  Overall, I am very happy with it.

Exceeds Expectations
Great quality, and I have nothing but positive things to say. It was a gift for my husband and he was beyond thrilled with it. He had requested it to be sharpened also, so I paid extra for that. And guess what? They actually DO sharpen it, and it is razor sharp, so I am also pleased with them for following through with that. I will order from this company again, because it is clear that they take their business seriously and want to please their customers.

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!

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.

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.
