OVERVIEW

Discovered in the town of Lincoln in 1788, this sword was attributed its name when it was pulled from the River Witham. Some propose that the sword was a remnant of the Battle of Lincoln in 1141, yet many more believe the sword was made between 1250-1300 CE. The blade has been etched just like the original with the inscription +NDXOXCHMDRCHDXORVI+. The blade is forged from high-carbon spring steel with a peened pommel. A scabbard is included.
