The mounted knights met the foot soldiers of Flanders outside their city of Cassel. The Flemish Pikemen could not hold their ground against the hard charging French cavalry and were ridden down and killed by the thousands. This Middle Age sword is a prime example of the type sword that would have been used by the conquering French knights. By this period more emphasis was being put on the appearance of weapons, resulting in swords like this one that truly deserve to be described as art. A well balanced cutting sword, the long graceful steel guard provides excellent hand protection. The pommel is also steel and the wood grip is covered in twisted wire for a positive hold and is long enough for the sword to be classified as a bastard sword. The blade is made from well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel and the scabbard is included. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Sword of Homildon Hill

During the English-Scottish Wars, the King of England was preoccupied with the Hundred Years’ War in France. The border defense thereby fell largely to the Percy Family of Northumberland. During a border raid, the Scottish leader, Archibald IV, Earl of Douglas, was captured at a battle on Homildon Hill by the Percys, led by the younger Sir Henry "Hotspur" Percy. Henry IV demanded the prisoner so he could collect the ransom himself. This demand, though obeyed, was the seed that began the long Percy Family revolt that ended years later with the Battle of Bramham Moor. Hotspur was considered the greatest knight of the realm and held honor sacred. We have named this hand and half sword for that battle and Hotspur. The fullers are engraved in Latin with the inscription "Who lives in falsehood slays his soul; whose speech is false, his honor", something Hotspur took to heart. The blade is from well-tempered high carbon steel, the wood grip is wrapped in fine black cord and the detailed parts have a dark bronze finish. Leather wrapped scabbard has matching bronze fittings. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.

Mail Gauntlets

To protect the back of the hand, we have added mail on our black leather gauntlets and also placed slightly cupped steel lames all around the cuff. These gauntlets offer good protection to the hand, wrist and lower arm from a sword slash or draw cut. There's a pair much like these at the Art Institute of Chicago that are highly decorative, however we have left ours plain to keep the price down and to allow them to be historically correct from the Early Middle Ages well into the Renaissance. These mail gauntlets are a must for any enthusiast.
