This sword has been named after the famous battlefield where Prince Hal (later Henry V of England) defeated Percy Hotspur in 1403 and is noted by the pierced crosses in the steel guard. This long slender blade is double-edged and finely tapered. Possessing enough breadth to cut, the Shrewsbury is equally strong to thrust. Made by the master craftsmen at Windlass Steelcrafts.

OVERVIEW

Circa 1400

During the height of plate armor, this narrow, sharply-pointed sword was one of the most successful in finding chinks in armor or to even “punch through” if necessary. This long slender blade is double-edged and finely tapered. Possessing enough breadth to cut, the Shrewsbury is equally strong to thrust. The original sword can be seen in the Wallace Collection.

This sword has been named after the famous battlefield where Prince Hal (later Henry V of England) defeated Percy Hotspur in 1403 and is noted by the pierced crosses in the steel guard. This replica, from the master craftsmen at Windlass Steelcrafts, has been forged from 1065 high carbon steel, which has strong edge-holding capabilities and will flex and return to true. The steel pommel is fig shaped and has been beautifully faceted. The leather scabbard has a belt stop, scalloped edges on both the throat and tip plus a pierced cross at the tip.

  • Overall: 42-1/8"
  • Blade: 33-3/8" long, 1-3/4" wide, 3/16" thick
  • Wt: 2 lbs / 12 oz

Can be sharpened and/or personalized with 3 Initials for additional fees.

Glad it's back
The one I own was from their run in the early to mid 90's. But it's a great sword! I handled one of the new ones last May

Excellent craftsmanship
This sword just arrived today and I'm very happy with it. Fit and finish on the sword and scabbard are all excellent, with no loose parts. The optional sharpening is nice and even. This is a pretty good-sized sword but the balance is excellent. The handle diameter is on the large size - not a serious problem for me, but if your hands are smaller (glove size medium or smaller) it might make your grip fairly open... Altogether a lovely sword!
