Premium Quality, made by Windlass Steelcrafts®

The longsword was a central weapon of the Science of Defence and an indispensable part of the chivalric art of arms for centuries. This sword is no exception. A beautifully proportioned weapon with dynamic handling qualities, it is a harmony of mass and dimension. With a long, semi-tapered diamond cross-section fitted to a round ergonomic pommel on a double-handed grip, this is a fine example of the perfection that was achieved in this popular design. Against any opposing arms or armor it was capable of quick deadly cuts as well as accurate and forceful thrusts. Aptly named for the bloody late 15th-century battle during the War of the Roses, the Bosworth is a fast and capable warsword adeptly able to execute the deadly “Mastercut” techniques so closely associated with double-handed blades of the period. With a slim handle that virtually begs to be gripped in the diverse and effective winding actions that this kind of sword ideally allowed, it features a surprisingly small heft for its size. This ebony-toned “queen of weapons” is perfectly suited to foot-combat in war, judicial duel or knightly challenge. This is a substantial and graceful weapon that will leave the wielder every confidence it could readily defend life if called upon. Discover with it just why this form of longsword was respected for centuries and celebrated against whatever it encountered.

Die Bestellung und Lieferung ging schön schnell, das Schwert war gut verpackt und ordentlich eingeschmiert. Obwohl ich noch nie zuvor ein funktionales Schwert in der Hand gehalten habe, kann ich sagen es fühlt sich gut in der Hand an, aber da ich es noch nicht testen konnte kann ich nicht viel zur Schärfe sagen, außer, dass ich mir trotz Behutsamkeit beim Auspacken gleich die Hand rot gefärbt habe. Mit solch einer Schärfe habe ich, unteranderem aufgrund der anderen Bewertungen, nicht gerechnet und es hat mich, trotz meiner Hand, positiv überrascht. Es auszuprobieren liegt zwar noch vor mir, allerdings bin ich mit dem Kauf, vorallem für diesen guten Preis, auf jeden Fall zufrieden.

Just received it exactly 4 days after my order took place. It is very well made and quite good looking. I love the way it handles. Only problem it wasn't really sharpened, like at all, but I guess i can solve that on my own. Anyway I do recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, practical longsword
