Practical Hand-and-a-Half Sword

£156.29

The Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in our Paul Chen collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly. The hardwood grips are leather-covered.

Product Description

Details

The Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in our Paul Chen collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly. The hardwood grips are leather-covered.

The scabbards are fabricated in glass-filled resin, to eliminate swelling and to minimize blade corrosion problems, with belt rings that adjust to allow vertical or horizontal carry. The wood-grain finish is attractive, but most re-enactors will decorate the scabbard to match their persona.The Practical Hand-and-a Half sword is based on the Albrecht sword, a classic design from the early part of the 15th century, with a simple cruciform hilt, flattened diamond-section blade and typical hand-and-a-half grip. With a weight of just 3 ¼ lbs. it handles very well without tiring the player during a long day in the field.

It's a good swordReview by Timski

We use this as the main-training blade in our re-enactment group for long(-ish) sword training.
The blade is a little too front heavy, there is a slight wobble to the crossguard, and the leather on the grip has fallen off on both of our swords.
But, other than that, the steel is strong, it doesn't rust easy, and it can really take a beating.

If you want a sword that works and is great to practice with, this is good! (Posted on 16/07/2018)
