Late Medieval Arming Sword - Malta Sword

£178.20

Be the first to review this product

This late medieval arming sword echoes this change in standards. The long, tapered shape of the blade represents the beginnings of a larger development that would lead to pure thrusting weapons such as the rapier. Whereas the hilt figures squarely in the high medieval tradition of classical knight swords, the cross engraving on the pommel evokes a Christian worldview. The diagonal fluting of the leather wrapped around the grip keeps the sword secure in your hand. The steel cross-guard bends upward.

A sturdy brown scabbard of leather with chape and throat as well as a leather frog allow you to carry the sword with style and ease.

Description

Details

A sword from the late stage of European knight culture, the 14th century brought with it a series of far reaching changes. The Hundred Years' War between France and England led to a burst of development in weapon technology that was the beginning of the end of traditional knighthood. Gunpowder weapons found their way onto European battle fields and the subsequent development of plate armour rendered classical swords increasingly useless. Sword smithery shifted to narrower, pointier swords suitable for penetrating the cracks in plate armour. Thrusting came to the fore, while cutting and hitting lost significance.

This late medieval arming sword echoes this change in standards. The long, tapered shape of the blade represents the beginnings of a larger development that would lead to pure thrusting weapons such as the rapier. Whereas the hilt figures squarely in the high medieval tradition of classical knight swords, the cross engraving on the pommel evokes a Christian worldview. The diagonal fluting of the leather wrapped around the grip keeps the sword secure in your hand. The steel cross-guard bends upward.

A sturdy brown scabbard of leather with chape and throat as well as a leather frog allow you to carry the sword with style and ease.
