High Middle Ages knight sword with scabbard
A replica of a high medieval, knightly one-handed sword suitable for show fighting. The special feature of this sword is the pommel, which is a variation of the Paranus pommel and was introduced by Oakshott in the 13th century. This sword is exclusively handmade. The forward bent parry bar and the Paranus pommel are made of heat treated, forgeable cast iron. The spring steel blade, hardened in oil to approx. 48 HRC, goes through to the pommel and is hand-riveted there. The handle is wrapped with leather strap. The blade has a pronounced groove, which gives the sword great elasticity and lightness at the same time. The tip of the blade and the cutting edges are blunt and rounded. The sword comes with a very nice wood-leather scabbard with wooden hanger as belt loop (for max. 5 cm wide belts). The scabbard also has a steel gable plate.

general warranty 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.
