The Towton Sword

#500070
$225.00

Closeout, Was $225, Now Only $139! In the winter of 1461, the yet uncrowned Edward IV marched a large Yorkist (the white rose of the “War Of The Roses”) army northward to attack the Lancastrian forces (the red rose) of the legitimate King Henry VI. Although they launched an attack on the Lancastrians’ strong position on an uphill slope at Towton, the Yorkist forces were aided by a blinding snow storm at their backs; the Yorkist archers were able to kill at a range that the Lancastrian arrows  were unable to match. The 20,000 royalists charged downhill into their tormentors. The next six hours witnessed thousands fall in one of the bloodiest battles ever to take place on English soil. We have named this sword for that fearsome battle. The blade tapers to an excellent stabbing point and is fullered for most of its length for lightning speed. On foot it could be used with two hands, delivering terrible cuts and thrusts. From horseback its perfect balance and weight still allowed for one-hand blows of equal devastation. Truly a joy to hold, the long graceful pommel, wood and leather grip are nicely complimented by the elegant curves of the crossguard. Flexible and well-tempered, this is sure to become one of your favorites. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Scabbard included. Overall: 44"Blade: 36" long, 2" wide, 3/16"  thickWt: 2 lbs/12 oz
