Premium Quality, made by Windlass Steelcrafts®

The longsword was a central weapon of the Science of Defence and an indispensable part of the chivalric art of arms for centuries. This sword is no exception. A beautifully proportioned weapon with dynamic handling qualities, it is a harmony of mass and dimension. With a long, semi-tapered diamond cross-section fitted to a round ergonomic pommel on a double-handed grip, this is a fine example of the perfection that was achieved in this popular design. Against any opposing arms or armor it was capable of quick deadly cuts as well as accurate and forceful thrusts. Aptly named for the bloody late 15th-century battle during the War of the Roses, the Bosworth is a fast and capable warsword adeptly able to execute the deadly “Mastercut” techniques so closely associated with double-handed blades of the period. With a slim handle that virtually begs to be gripped in the diverse and effective winding actions that this kind of sword ideally allowed, it features a surprisingly small heft for its size. This ebony-toned “queen of weapons” is perfectly suited to foot-combat in war, judicial duel or knightly challenge. This is a substantial and graceful weapon that will leave the wielder every confidence it could readily defend life if called upon. Discover with it just why this form of longsword was respected for centuries and celebrated against whatever it encountered.

Die Bestellung ging fix und das Paket kam, wie angekündigt, an. Das Schwert ist sehr gut verpackt gewesen. Es war mit eine Art Wachs eingecremt an den metallenen Bauteilen + Frischhaltefolie. Das Schwert sieht meines Erachtens besser aus, als auf den Bildern. Es ist sehr gut ausbalanciert und auch nach einfachen Schnittübungen an Obst und Wasserflaschen makellos. Die Lederverarbeitung am Griff ist auch besser als erwartet. Die Schwertscheide ist auch sehr solide. Kontra : Die Gürtelhalterungen an der Scheide sind etwas grob im Vergleich zum Rest (Trotzdem stabil). Das Schwert ist nicht Messerscharf, nur angeschärft.

Die Beschreibung zu diesem Schwert stimmt soweit. Nur "messerscharfe" Klinge ist wirklich sehr übertrieben. Ich kann mir damit auf meinem Arm hin und her - säbeln. Da passiert überhaupt nichts. Nicht einmal ein Kratzer. Bevor man damit eine Schnittübung an etwas anderem als Melonen machen will, sollte man es lieber vorher schärfen oder schärfen lassen.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
