Product Description

Details

Circa 1400During the height of plate armor, this narrow, sharply-pointed sword was one of the most successful in finding chinks in armor or to even “punch through” if necessary. This long slender blade is double-edged and finely tapered. Possessing enough breadth to cut, the Shrewsbury is equally strong to thrust. The original sword can be seen in the Wallace Collection.This sword has been named after the famous battlefield where Prince Hal (later Henry V of England) defeated Percy Hotspur in 1403 and is noted by the pierced crosses in the steel guard. This replica, from the master craftsmen at Windlass Steelcrafts, has been forged from 1065 high carbon steel, which has strong edge-holding capabilities and will flex and return to true. The steel pommel is fig shaped and has been beautifully faceted. The leather scabbard has a belt stop, scalloped edges on both the throat and tip plus a pierced cross at the tip.
