It must have been a fearsome sight having this huge sword coming at you across the battlefield. This particular sword is a copy of number IV-1787 in the Royal Armouries in England. Though big, it is beautifully balanced for two-handed use, allowing for sweeping cuts, and it must have swept away all in its path. The long grip is wood covered in leather, and the parts are steel, making for an imposing sword. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Includes scabbard. Arrives sharpened from the factory.
  • Overall: 57-1/2"

  • Wt: 4 lbs/2 oz

Too bad it's gone...
I got one for my birthday in 2021. Fortunately I did because they are discontinued now.
Blue is different from the overused black most replica swords use, but blue is my favorite color so I was happy.
This sword was well worth the price, very large but not the biggest. Very well assembled, but not perfect. However if one is more concerned with function than perfection then it's a non-issue.
Still tight after 1 1/2 years of use; including test cutting.
Not sure if this model will be brought back (I think mine was bought during a 2nd production run) but if you can find one I'd definitely recommend it.
Windlass is making a very similar sword under the Royal Armouries line but it's higher in price. The stats are similar so I'd imagine they feel similar.

Imposing and Well-Crafted, though Not Timely
This sword is absolutely gorgeous and the first real blade I have owned. I am 5'6" and while standing the pommel rest right under my chin; the sword is oversized for my height profile but it was exactly what I wanted. However, the product took roughly 6 months to arrive, that was not an issue for me so much, but if you want your sword in a timely fashion this may not be the right fit for you.

Outstanding Two-Handed Sword
This is a very sturdy, well made sword.  It is the largest in my collection (overall length is nearly five feet).  Despite the great length and sturdiness, it's surprisingly light and maneuverable in two hands, with an appropriate balance for a powerful cutting blade of this size.  The handle is surprisingly comfortable - with and without gloves.  The quality of the detailing is fair and easily forgivable for a sword at this budget.  Highly functional, and very reasonably priced.  Very highly recommended.

Very great sword, I love that the Windlass swords are all hand forged. Definitely the best purchase i've ever made!
