15th century French arming sword - Oakeshott type XVIII

This was the most popular style of arming sword used circa 1410-1510, because this style of acutely-pointed stiff flattened-diamond cross-section blade was really good at both cutting and stabbing; particularly when employed against infantrymen armored in maille and brigandine.

This reproduction has a 1065 high carbon blade, a hardwood grip, a Type W pommel (cool and different, huh!); and comes with a leather shcabbard with steel fittings. It is sharp and seriously sweet.
