Sword of Bramham Moor

This English longsword is named for the final battle of the Percy Rebellion of 1402 - 1408, which pitted the Earl of Northumberland, leader of the wealthy and influential Percy family, against the usurper King of England, King Henry IV. The Percys had previously aided Henry IV in his coup d'etat of his cousin King Richard II in 1399. The rebellion involved many knights, lords and barons, and this is the type of sword that many of those proud fighting men would have used in that contest for the crown of England. The hollow ground diamond cross section blade is 1065 high carbon steel, fittings are steel with a shield and cross etched into the pommel. The grip is wrapped in leather and cross hatched with leather lacing and studs for an improved grasp. This sword comes with a nice scabbard with brass accents on the steel throat and tip and a matching sword belt.
