A reproduction of the sword hung over the tomb of Henry the V of England. It has frequently been referred to as the archetype of the Medieval sword. This is a sword that exemplifies the attributes that a knightly sword of the highest quality can exhibit. It's balance is superb, creating an exceptional fighting sword with fearsome cutting ability and excellent point control for the thrust. This might well be the very sword Henry carried at Agincourt.
We have used notes and sketches contributed by Ewart Oakeshott for an exceptionally accurate reproduction. He first handled the sword when he was asked to conserve and study the original. A royal weapon, it would be an outstanding addition to your collection.
