    English medieval swords are rare and although the original sword’s find site is unknown, it is definitely of English origin because of its decoration. The copper alloy cross-guard is decorated with mythical creatures, probably including a gryphon and a wyvern. Importantly it also features ‘babewyns’, grotesque creatures without bodies but having heads with tiny legs coming from their necks. Similar ‘babewyns’ appear in contemporary English manuscript illustrations.

    English, mid 13th century.

    Based on the original Henry VIIl Sabre (IX.634), which is part of the museum's collection, and dates to 1500AD, this miniature replica is produced from stainless steel and features a slightly curved grip and a 'beaked' pommel. The cross-guard exhibits a serpentine design which leads to a, 24cm long, curved blade (which is blunt for safety). The fuller of the blade is shallow and runs two-thirds of its length.
