3 Swords available today!

Hot off the forge to your hands, these three swords are available now, just waiting for a responsible sword parent to claim them! In the variable fates of production we have these pieces ready to ship right now and they will make excellent additions to your armory.

We have two Bohemian Broadswords one with the standard black grip and one with the dark oxblood red grip. These elegant longswords have a writhed hilt design common at the end of the 15th C and hexagonal blade cross sections. Here is a discussion of medieval blade shapes we recently posted.

The Bohemian is a light fast sword with exceptional cutting attributes due to the blade shape. It is always one of the favorites when we have a whole table of swords displayed and folks are trying to choice a favorite.

You can watch a detailed video of the piece by Nathan here

A Custom Sword

The other sword we have available today is an early medieval single hander done as a custom item that the customer could no longer receive. So the piece is now available for immediate sale and ship at 1300.00 inclusive. The sword is a light and fast hollow ground type XVIII blade with a straight guard and hexagonal wheel pommel. The grip is black leather with three risers in the center of the grip and slightly larger risers at the top and bottom. 

This sword is incredibly fast in the hand with an agility that is hard to imagine. This is due to the COG being just two inches in front of the guard and the hollow ground blade contributing to the hilt to blade ration near the edge of the functional envelope.
