This beautiful medieval sword is as elegant to handle as it is to look at. Ewart Oakeshott had this in his care and though it came from the central region of France. It was found in context with a small Rondel dagger. The grip was probably done late in its working life as it is of a style that postdates the sword by a generation or two.
The hilt is done in steel with a beveled wheel pommel of oval outline, incised with two parallel lines running vertically in the center. The grip is bound in twisted steel wire. The top and bottom ferrules of worked steel hold the decorative steel bar elements in place. The guard is straight with a graceful trumpeted shape.
The original sword and the A&A hand crafted replica in comparison. You can see the detail of the original in The Oakeshott Institute's 3D model research. Check out this sword here.
