This beautiful yet low-priced sword is based on features of several swords from the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. It has some of the features of the tournament swords used by 15th century knights. The rings on the crossguard make this type of sword unique, this is the earliest example of the later development of which the rapier is the pinnacle, with its intricate and beautiful grip designs. In medieval tournaments, these rings provided a better grip while still keeping the weight of the sword somewhat low. This sword is made of EN45 spring steel and the tang extends into the grip. The sword comes with a leather scabbard with rings for a belt._x000D_

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds._x000D_
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
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.
