Oakeshott type XIIA. This medieval long sword Linus is a good example of the kind used for civilian carry. Lighter than the battle sword, it excelled in cutting for unarmored combat. The grip is long for two-hand use with a row of studs under the fine leather for a very firm hold. The pommel (type T2) and guard (style 8) are bright brass for easy care. High carbon steel blade is then and tempered to a good spring. Comes with leather scabbard.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
