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. Like their famous sword, the Normans' lust for battle and ravenous desire for land and treasure can be undoubtedly traced to their Viking forefathers, who wrenched their homeland in north-western France from the hands of Charles the Simple in the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte in 911 A.D. Never satisfied with their lot, it wasn't long before they once again took up their broad, double-edged swords and set sail across the English Channel to conquer Britain, most famously at the battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Cold Steel now offers a battle-ready version of these famous swords. Like the studied originals, it offers a long, wide blade with fully sharpened edges. To ensure that it remains light enough to be easily wielded with one hand, Cold Steel has also added a single broad fuller in the center of the blade that serves to reduce weight, improve balance and add the stiffness required to withstand heavy blows.
The hilt of the Cold Steel Norman Sword is also reminiscent of many surviving originals. It features downturned, spatulate quillons, a leather-over-wood grip and a modified "cocked hat" pommel. This pommel shape was specially chosen, as it allows more room for the hand while counterbalancing the blade and serving as a weapon in its own right.
The sword comes along with a leather-covered wooden scabbard with steel fittings.

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
