Red Dragon - 13th century bastard sword

From Red Dragon in the UK - a crusader-era knight's cleave-thy-foes sword with a long blade and medium length grip (useable one handed or second-hand-gripping-the-pommel-for-extra-oompf-ish). The blade is 36" of EN42J tempered steel with an 45HRC core and 50HRC edge for spring and toughness. The factory edges are a "reenactor-safe", sharpenable or rebatabale as needed (note that the tip is sharp and needs a bit of rounding if you're going to further blunt the blade). The grip is wood core with a leather cord wrap, and the scabbard is also leather covered wood core with an INTEGRATED SWORD BELT (sorry about the shout, but it's hard to not get excited about that feature.)
