Renaissance Mortuary sword for show fight SK-A

The Mortuary Sword, also called Mortuary Hilt Sword, was created in England in the early 17th century. As a typical cavalry sword it was used as a standard weapon by the British dragoons until about 1670, e.g. in the English Civil War (1642 - 1651). Due to its vessel form it is related to the Pallasch, the English basket sword or the Italian Schiavona and is classified as an early form of the basket sword. The sword blade made of spring steel EN45 is forged through to the pommel and screwed to the end of the handle. It has two grooves on each side, as was usual for this type of sword. The sword is very well balanced and the weight is only about 1150 g. The wooden hilt is wrapped with leather and the grip basket (hilt) is made of steel. The tip of the blade is rounded. This sword is therefore very suitable for show fighting.

general warranty notice for swords

Our show combat weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the customer is responsible for providing evidence of defects (e.g. material defects) that were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. An exhibition sword is naturally an object of wear and tear. Even the best and most expensive exhibition sword becomes chipped after heavy use, the parry bar can become wobbly and the grip can become loose.  This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. Even with these blades the unlikely case can occur that they break if they are already weakened by several and deep embrasures. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
