    Medieval Knight Sword

     Blade: 5160 High Carbon Steel. Dual Tempered HRc 60 48-50 at the core Total length: 35" Blade length: 28" Blade width at base: 2" Weight: 1.6 lbs   1275-1340 AD, Type XIV blade. Royal Armouries, Leeds.

    The Medieval Knight sword, or type XIV, is the quintessential sword of the medieval period. Described in Oakeshott's typology as being relatively short, with a strong taper and sharply pointed (E. Oakeshott: "The Sword in the Age of Chivalry" p.51 ) the Medieval Knight sword is a light and well balanced weapon which facilitated a fast and agile fighting style. As full plated armour aggregated into the complex defence of the aristocratic military elite, swords too had to be improve to counter this ever evolving defence. Unlike the sluggish and belated fighting that characterise modern misconceptions of medieval combat, the Medieval Knight sword, or Type XIV, was a well balanced and deadly weapon innate with exceptional handling characteristics. While the deep seated taper delivers assertive thrusts, the impressive cutting abilities made this sword a deadly weapon of choice.


    The Medieval Knight sword is a beautifully crafted and engineered weapon. Exceptionally designed to deliver both cut and thrust, it is very well balanced, light and responsive. Elegantly crafted from originals at the Royal Armouries and the Wallace Collection, the medieval knight sword reflects the design and taste of the late medieval period. The detailed handle and curved guard indicates the early artistic influences, eventually explored during the Gothic period. Beautifully constructed from 5160 High Carbon Steel and Dual Tempered for both cutting and thrust combat, the medieval knight sword is not only one of our all time best selling swords, it is also among our staff's top 5 favourite pieces. Not only for its clean fluid artistic lines and simplicity, but for its exceptional handling characteristics. This battle ready sword is quick, responsive and allows exceptional mobility in close quarter combat.
