Late medieval decoration sword Shrewsbury 15th century incl. scabbard
Manufactured according to historical models. The model is from the Battle of Shrewsbury. The double-edged blade is forged from hardened, heat-treated spring steel EN45. It has a diamond-shaped cross section, tapers gently towards the pointed point and is fluted on both sides. The wide groove runs centrally over about half the blade length. The cutting edges are not sharpened and the continuous blade tang is riveted to the end of the handle. The hilt consists of a handle with a wooden core and brown leather winding, a six-facetted steel plug pommel and a flattened parry bar, also made of steel. The ends of the parryer are widened and each decorated with a cut-out cross. The quillon is about 23 cm long and 0.5 cm thick. The late medieval one-and-a-half hander is delivered with a brown wooden/leather scabbard with steel mouthpiece and 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 a wear item. 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.
