Product Description

Details

Our Red Dragon swords feature high carbon EN42J Spring Steel blades that have been forged and tempered to perform like their historical counterparts. They have a core hardness of 45HRC approx. with an edge hardness of 50HRC approx. The hilts feature authentically styled forged guards and pommels constructed from steel, and wooden grips that are masterfully wrapped in leather cord for an aesthetic yet comfortable finish. They come complete with leather wrapped wooden scabbards and authentically styled integrated leather belts.
Our Red Dragon Combat “Bastard Sword” is designed to replicate a 13th-century longsword. The broad blade is designed for slashing, and excels at this when sharpened. The 1mm edge makes this sword useable for HEMA (drilling not sparring) and stage combat, although some light surface nicks are inevitable due to the thinness of the edge. If being used for either of these disciplines, we would recommend rounding off the tip for safety.

Decent sword, Amazing price Review by BjornTheBear

I bought this sword on a whim, the aesthetics of it caught my eye and I was not disappointed. I love this sword, and feel it’s a great entry level sword, my only complaint is that maybe it could do with more weight in the pommel as it feels a little ‘blade happy’ (Posted on 24/04/2020)

Awesome sword. Feels great. Balans is a bit of, little further on the blade then expected, but for cutting its not a problem. Scabbard looks perfect, only a minor defect, there is a little scar on the leather. (Posted on 26/03/2020)
Great sword for the price Review by Lewis

Other than a few slight defects I have to say I'm very impressed with this sword.

First off the issues I have with the blade are a slight discoloration of the steel close to the top of the fuller on both sides of the blade as well as a couple of scratch marks on the crossguard I'm assuming were gained during the manufacturing process. Neither is a major concern especially considering the price and overall finish of the work.

Handles well in the cut if used with correct technique and edge alignment, due to the spring steel construction any mistake's in hand position will result in considerable vibration traveling through the blade. This is entirely dependent on user skill and I've found that with careful practice and patience it can be avoided.

Just received this product, came well wrapped and undamaged. Incredible quality considering the price. On one side of the blade the guard centre is slightly misaligned with the blade fuller but it is hardly noticeable unless viewed closely. Scabbard looks nice and holds the sword well. I bought it sharpened and managed to nick my thumb as i took it out of the wrapping so it's safe to say that extra service was worth it too! (Posted on 15/08/2019)
