Longsword with Parrying Ring, 15th c., incl. Scabbard

This good value two-handed sword is a beautiful example of a long sword of the European late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. Although not a one-to-one replica of an original historical piece, it shows some of the typical characteristics of the two-handed arming swords wielded by 15th century Gothic knights in full suit of armour.

Longsword with Parrying Ring, 15th c., incl. Scabbard

This type of ring hilt longsword is differentiated from others of the same period by its side rings placed on either side of the crossguard (which eventually led to more complex hilt designs developing). On the medieval battlefields and tournaments, such rings provided much greater protection to the hands without adding much to the weapon’s overall weight.

The long, broad, double-edged blade of the medieval sword we offer here tapers only slightly towards the point. It is forged out of EN45 spring steel and has multiple fullers on each side (one main fuller framed by two short ones – a feature common to many Oakeshott Type XX swords). The edges are not sharpened, and the blade's full tang is screwed to the pommel.

The cruciform hilt sports a generously sized, inverted scent stopper pommel and an approx. 19 cm long, slightly downwardly curved crossguard with D-shaped parrying rings, all made of steel. The handle is composed of a wooden core with leather-and-steel overlay: While the first half adjacent to the guard is bound in black leather, the rest of the grip is wrapped with twisted steel wire.

This late medieval two-handed knightly sword comes complete with a black wood-and-leather scabbard with steel throat, chape, middle band and articulated suspension rings.

Please note that this sword is not a battle-ready weapon. It is designed as a collector’s or decoration/display piece and is not suited for combat reenactment. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume.
