By the 14th C. the classical view of the Knight Medieval sword took shape in the Arming Sword. Light, well balanced with a pronounced tapper and tip, the Arming sword proved to be a devastating weapon in close quarter combat. This 14th C. innovation in medieval sword-making was in response to the growing platted armors of the era. The heavily tapered blade gave the sword devastating stabbing force against plated armor, while retaining it's destructive cutting edge. The sword came to be known as the 'Arming swords' because it formed part of the Medieval Knight's basic, yet necessary equipment, no matter what other weapon he chose to use in Battle.The Arming Sword's blade has a broad four-sided flattened diamond cross section, typically associated with the close quarter swords of the 14th and 15th C. throughout Medieval Europe. Due to their light weight and potent thrusting abilities, this powerful and effective sword became the prevailing weapon of the 15th C. The Arming sword is faithfully crafted from the original at the Wallace Collection (A460). skillfully crafted with the same dimensions as the original (32" long, 2" wide blade) the sword is responsive, exceptionally well balanced, and delivers forceful blows. The Arming sword is a finely crafted, classically styled and a must even for the most discriminating collector!
