Product description

From 1300 onwards the shape and strength of the sword changed rapidly because the growing use of armour and a shield was unnecessary. The grip and the blade became longer so that it could be used two-handed now that a shield was not longer necessary. The large swords were longswords that could be used with one or two hands. They were the predecessors of the later and even larger two-handed swords. Large swords were only used by infantrymen. The shape of the blade was first wide and flat, later on slimmer and more pointed and also the later point was thinner to better pierce the armour.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
