This arming sword celebrates the first major battle of Hundred Years' War between England and France (1337 to 1453). (The astute reader will notice that the Hundred Years' War lasted 116 years - proof that time, like spelling, was more fluid in those days). Crecy, 1346, was a major English victory early in the War. This arming sword is styled after an early 14th century original. The blade is forged from 5160 high-carbon steel and features a prominent central ridge that provides the necessary stiffness for forceful thrusts, as well as sharpened edges for visious cuts. The riveted-tang hilt features down-turned quillons and a cord-wrapped grip. A chestnut leather scabbard complements the sword. New for 2011, this sword will be arriving in March.
