Type XIV is the last sword in Oakeshotts typification that was meant for piercing chainmail. It has a short, wide and pointy blade. The profile is quite flat and sometimes has a small middle rib. The fuller covers half of the blade and is quite wide, but some fullers are narrow. The grip has a length of 9,5 to 11,5 cm and a thick bart of the blade continues into the pommel. The pommel is always round, sometime wide and flat. The cross-guard is quite wide and often bended. Type XIV has a functional tip and because of its blade it is suitable for both hitting and stabbing. Swords of type XIV were popular between 1260 and 1340, but just a few originals have been excavated.

Awesome sword for the price! Well balanced, light and all around a good sword in the hand. Not sure how well the blade would hold up verse another sword but the overall look of the sword and feel of this sword is incredible.
This is a very nice sword at at a good price. As these items are individally made, sizes may differ. My sword is a little smaller, but quite a bit lighter. Length: 87.7cm, Blade length: 69.6cm, Grip Lenght: 11.7cm, Weight: 1.15kg, Width at Guard: 5cm, PoB: 8.4cm, Blade Node (CoP):26.5cm. It is a pleasure to handle, and it impressed everyone at my re-enactment club.
