Replica of a high medieval one-handed sword with disc pommel. This type of swords were already used by the Normans and were used in the Crusades. The sword comes with a very nice wood scabbard coated in Leather with a belt loop (for max. 5cm wide belts). The sheath also has a steel chape.
This sword is made entirely by hand. The straight guard and disc pommel are made of heat treated, malleable cast iron. The oil-hardened blade from spring steel is hardened to approx. 48-50 HRC. It goes through the handle up to the pommel and is hand-riveted there. The handle is wrapped with leather strap. The blade has a pronounced fuller, which gives the sword high elasticity and lightness at the same time. The blade edge is not sharpened.
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.
