Tinker Early Medieval Sword

The Early Medieval Swords (Oakeshott Type X11) are designed so that the sharp and blunt versions will perform identically. The sharp blade is fullered for about two thirds of its length, with a flattened diamond section out to the tip. The blunt blade features a broad, flat fuller to move mass towards the edges for safety while retaining a lively feel. The cruciform hilt is attractive and functional. A leather-covered scabbard is included.

Michael 'Tinker' Pearce has designed a series of swords made by Hanwei in 5160 steel, which emphasise authenticity, functionality and performance.To satisfy the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Artists, each of the 7 styles are made in live (sharp) and sparring (blunt) versions and each sword has outstanding handling characteristics. The carefully controlled heat-treating of 5160 steel (Tinker's blade steel of choice) by the marquenching process produces an excellent combination of toughness and flexibility at a hardness of HRC 50-52, allowing for superior edge retention on the sharps, anti burr and tip-flexing safety features on the blunts.

Replacement blades are available for all swords in the series; a key feature of Tinker's designs is the interchangeability of blades within each pair of swords with the exception of the Viking, allowing the user to purchase one complete sword and a spare blade to enjoy both versions. The Longswords, Bastard Swords and Early Medieval Swords all feature Tinker's recessed sleeve nut mounting system, providing secure hilt retention, tightening and easy blade exchange using the Allen wrench provided.
