Battle Ready Swords

Battle ready means just that. It is ready for battle. One thing that it means is that the sword is sharpened. Some other things to look for in a battle ready sword are a full tang. That is very important. Do not buy a battle ready sword if it isn't full tang. And the steel is important. There are a a lot of variables when it comes to steel but some good rules of thumb are to look for high carbon steel or a steel that is denoted as either 1060, 1065, or 1095. Those are good steels for a sword.

I have an explanation of full tang right here if you need to learn about it.

The Crecy was one of the most decisive battles of the 100 Years War. After the battle of Sluys, Edward III landed in Normandy in July 1346 with about 10,000 men. The French pursued. Edward III decided to halt near Crecy in Normandy and to prepare for battle the next day. However, the French vanguard made contact and started to attack without the benefit of a plan. The French made as many as 15 attacks and the English checked each one in turn, primarily thanks to the English long bowmen. In the end, the French were decimated and the English had a decisive victory. The Crecy is one type of sword that would have seen service on both sides during the 100 Years War. Oakeshott describes the Type XVIa as having a long, tapering blade, broad at the hilt, with a sharp, often reinforced, point. The Crecy is a fine example of a later period epee de guerre, or war sword, a refinement of the earlier XIIa in response to changes in the armor of the period.

  • Weight W/O Scabbard: 2 lbs 8 oz / Weight W/Scabbard: 3 lbs 9 oz

While glancing through the book, The Medieval Soldier, we ran across a hand-and-a-half sword that really caught our eye. The hand-and-a-half was quite popular during the Middle Ages. It was light enough to be used with one hand, with maybe a small buckler in the other, or you could grip it with both hands, thereby delivering a much stronger cut or thrust. Although the fullered blade was sharply pointed to penetrate joints in armour or to split mail links, it was also wide enough to deliver a cut. The high carbon steel blade has steel guard and pommel, with a wood grip covered in leather. Scabbard has steel mounts and is made from high grade leather.

This sword is a perfect replica of these swords lasted from roughly 1350 to 1550, declined in the late 16th century, and they were obsolete by the early 17th century. In modern use, the term "bastard-sword" refers to a specific sort of longsword, most commonly a compromise between the smaller one-handed arming sword and larger two-handed sword that was primarily used in "cut and thrust" type of sword play. Typically, the bastard sword was heavy enough for battlefield use, while still being light enough for the quick moves found commonly in cut-and-thrust fighting and/or dueling. This compromise is accomplished by a distal taper of the blade, and a carefully balanced pommel and grip. Like many German swords it is primarily a cutting sword, with a wide blade that has a flattened oval cross section that gives very little resistance in a cutting blow. It is also a perfect example of a true hand-and-half or bastard sword. The proportions of the sword are that of a one handed sword, but with a slightly longer grip and a pommel shape that will allow two hands to be used by gripping both. The grip is wood covered in cord and leather. The long quillion has a decorative finial on the end and the side rings provide good hand protection. Antiqued steel parts to match the original.
