Late medieval decoration sword rose wars 15th century incl. sword scabbard
The Battle of Tewkesbury, which took place during the Wars of the Roses on 4 May 1471, was a decisive victory for the House of York. It ended with the death of the young Lancastrian Crown Prince Edward of Wales, enabled King Edward IV to rule unchallenged for good and ushered in England's longest period of political stability in this conflict, which lasted several generations. When Edward IV died in 1483, however, the power struggles for the throne immediately broke out again. The long, double-edged blade is forged from hardened, heat-treated spring steel EN45. It tapers gently towards the pointed point and is fluted on both sides for about half of its length, with a flattened diamond-shaped cross-section towards the tip. The cutting edges are not sharpened and the continuous blade hinge is screwed to the end of the handle. The receptacle consists of a handle with a wooden core and black leather winding, a flattened steel quillon and an elongated, six-faceted plug pommel, also made of steel, with slightly concave sides. A cross is embedded in the pommel on one side. The parry bar is approx. 23 cm long and 0.5 cm thick. Its ends are widened and each decorated with a cut-out cross. The late medieval one-and-a-half-handed sword is delivered with a black wooden/leather scabbard with blued steel mouth 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.
