Sir William Marshal sword of the 12th century, SK-B - Swordfighting.
This sword is made after an original, which once belonged to Sir William Marshal. He was first Earl of Pembroke in England, one of the most outstanding knights. The sword can be admired today in a British museum.
This Swordfighting sword is made exclusively by hand. The blade is made of high quality spring steel, which is hardened to about 48 HRC. It is continuous up to the pommel and riveted at the pommel. The pronounced groove of the blade gives the sword great elasticity and at the same time lightness. Both the edge and the tip of the blade are rounded and thus blunt.
The straight guard is made of heat-treated and forgeable cast iron. The handle is wrapped with a sturdy leather strap.
The sword comes with a very nice wooden leather scabbard with wooden bow as belt loop (for max. 5 cm wide belts). The scabbard also has a steel breech plate.
A matching scabbard to the sword is included in the delivery. It is made of wood and covered with leather. It also has brass rings, which allows the sword scabbard to be attached to the belt.
