Premium Quality, made by Windlass Steelcrafts®

In his books “The Sword in the Age of Chivalry” and "Record of the Medieval Sword" E. Oakeshott has categorized European medieval swords according to their special features. The books have become staple reading and his categories are widely used. The type XIV short sword features a blade that swells slightly at the top to put more weight in the hand to improve its cut and thrust capabilities, making for a very fast sword. Especially the stabbing qualities are improved by the lighter point.
