This sword has great length giving it both reach and power. As the length increased the velocity increased substantially. The ricasso allowed the sword to be gripped past the guard, thus shortening the sword and allowing it to be used as short spear. This made a thrust more solid since the blade is held securely at two separate points.
The blade is high carbon steel, tempered to a tough spring, the grip is ridged wood, wrapped with leather, and the pommel and guard are steel.Comes complete with leather scabbard.
The Longsword Zacharias is suitable for LARP and usable as a theatre prop. According to the manufacturer, it is also usable for re-enactment with light show combats. Since the manufacturer grants neither guarantee nor any repair service, we advise against its practical use and sell this sword only as a decorative item (no battle-ready-weapon).
Made by Windlass / Marto.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
