William Marshal arming sword pattern-welded blade

Based on an original carried by Sir William Marshall, who served under England's Henry II, Richard the Lionhearted, and Duke John Lackland. The distally tapered blade is K120C steel, pattern-weld folded and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 54, and features a strong central ridge that is fullered for most of the blade's length, making for a very strong but very light and fast moving sword. Both edges are sharpened from tip to guard, and the tip is reinforced for strength in thrusting through the maille armor of the time. The grip is wrapped with braided leather, the guard and pommel are brush finish nickel steel. The scabbard is wood covered leather with steel fittings. This is the uber-fancy version of the William Marshall arming sword, and there is a corresponding blunt version, the 'Practical series' arming sword.
