This gorgeous hand and a half sword has been developed by CAS Iberia and is part of their Kingston Arms Tourney series. Designed for use in re-enactment battle or stage fighting, this blunt sword is great for one or two-handed battle and is a close recreation of the famous Oakeshott Type XVIIIa sword from Records of the Medieval Sword and made safe for reenactment and stage use.
The sword features a stainless steel pommel and guard and a hand forged, high carbon 9260 spring steel blade with blunt edges. The guard uses the King-Peen system, which has a steel tab pinned under the grip and pinned through the tang with the pommel hot peened into place. This keeps the guard from coming loose after rigorous fighting without compromising the strength of the hilt. A fuller runs the length to lighten and counter balance the sword. The tight cord wrapped leather grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. This great sword rings like a bell when struck and includes a matching leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape.

Great sword! Absolutely love the look and feel. I haven't used it in training yet but I have no doubt that this sword can take a beating. My only issue is that the tip end of the blade does not have much flex. Maybe not the best sword for hard sparing. All and all this sword seems to be a great training partner against a Pell.
