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 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.
