De Joinville Sword

#501694
$194.95

This beautiful sword was a very popular design during the 1400s due to its ease of punching through the armor of the day. The style of this simple piece is quite lovely and puts emphasis on the deadly nature of it. Made from 1065 high carbon steel by the smiths at Windlass.

OVERVIEW

The sire De Joinville was a French knight known for his bravery and devotion to his king, St. Louis. During the 7th Crusade, he was attacked by a Saracen after having lost his lance. So the valiant De Joinville tucked this sword under his arm as you would a lance, charged, and slew his opponent. His valorous action inspired our choice of his name for this beautiful weapon.

This was a very popular design during the 1400s due to its ease of punching through the armor of the day. The whole style of this simple piece is quite lovely and puts emphasis on the deadly nature of it. Made from 1065 high carbon steel by the smiths at Windlass. Includes leather scabbard with metal throat and tip. Hilt parts are steel and the grip is hand-carved hardwood and stained a rich hue.

Can be sharpened for an additional fee. Can be personalized with 3 initials.

Fast, Well Balanced Arming Sword
A great arming sword! The heavy pommel, large guard and wide blade base put the point of balance about 2" in front of the guard; this enables fast cuts and recoveries, and the puts the weapon's weight in the hand for solid, aimed thrusts.  I had mine sharpened by MR, and it arrived very, very sharp.  In addition, it is a beauty. My only complaint is that the scabbard is not a full wood core and the throat isn't symmetrical, so the sword only seats properly with maker's mark opposite the frog lug. That aside, this sword is easily worth the price, in beauty, balance, and deadliness.

Beautiful Sword.
Excellent sword. Well crafted, great shipping and packing. Only small glitch was that the shipping plastic protection wrapping discolored the pommel and guard. No problem. With a little Flitz, cleaned it up. Even with that, still 5 stars.

De Joinville Sword
I received this today and I absolutely love it. It's a little shorter than I imagined but it's also lighter, as well. Yes, the pommel is rather large, but it brings things nicely into balance. The quillions are beautiful, the blade is perfectly polished, no scratches anywhere. Sharpening was great, too, no burrs, nice and even. The blade is a bit whippier than I had anticipated but it's perfectly fine and functional -- the shorter length of the blade makes up for it. Besides, that just means the heat treatment was done correctly. The peen is nice and rounded off. Everything fits nice and tight. The scabbard is okay, I like the dip it has at the top for the crossguard, and the antique look of the scabbard furniture is nice, too. Oh, and the wood on the handle is perfectly dyed and sandpapered smooth. All in all, a great purchase and a wonderful little short arming sword. Highly recommended.

EDC sword?
This sword really pleasantly surprised me. The relatively simple design is elegant in its own way, even with the oddly over-sized pommel. It feels sturdy, rugged, like it's meant to be used instead of hung on a wall. It feels very light and nimble in the hand, though a bit hilt heavy (the pommel, no doubt....). The sharpening service was adequate and the fit and finish is excellent for this price range. I ended up actually liking the pommel as it effectively extends the grip to make this a hand and a half sword, essentially. Overall, very pleased and a good bargain for a trusty everyday carry sword.
