What a brave weapon is a short sharp light sword, to carry, to draw, to be nimble withal, to strike, to cut, to thrust both strong and quick - Paradoxes of Defense, George Silver, 1599.

Made from 1055 high carbon steel and supplied with a mild patina to give an 'antiqued' finish, each English Backsword is fully sharpened and supplied complete with an ornate leather and steel scabbard. An excellent addition to the collection of any Historical European Martial Artist or Historical Reenactor.

1055 High Carbon Steel

The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
