Kingston / Atrim type XIIIa war sword

Designed by Angus Trim and made by Kingston Arms - an Oakeshott type XIIIa war sword. This sharp and surprisingly nimble beast is from that interesting mid 12th to early 13th century arms race between swordsmiths and armorers - meant to counter Transitional Armor with elegant force.

The blade is mono-tempered 9260 spring steel, flat ground (very) sharp with a satin finish. The pommel, guard, and scabbard fittings are stainless steel. The grip is cord and leather wrap over a wood core, with two risers that really help you feel your hand placement. The pommel is solidly held in place with a threaded M6 x 1 retention nut, the same size that fits most Tinker, Atrim, and Kingston swords with non-peened pommels. The scabbard is wood cored with a leather over-wrap.
