Generation 2/Legacy Arms Knight's Riding Sword

According to Ewart Oakeshott. "Records of the Medieval Sword", page 151;

An identical one is shown on two early 14th century effigies in Germany. (i), of Arnold I Langraph of Cleve, + 1320 in Stiftskirche at Cleve, and (ii), of one of the hero-figures, c. 1308, in the Rathaus at Cologne.  Not only are hilts of the swords on these figures exactly the same as this sword, but the size is too,, more proof (if any more is needed, which it shouldn't be) that these short swords were not made for boys, or archers etc., but for knights and in this case, great nobles.

The blade of this sword is hand forged from 5160 carbon steel and hand tempered.  The blade is then securely peened at pommel.  The handle is wood wrapped in black leather. Sword also includes a wood scabbard wrapped in black leather with steel accents at throat and tip.

Good value

I wanted a functional, short arming sword to hang on the wall and this Knights Riding sword fits the bill nicely.

The quality is good for the price point, it's well balanced, and a good quality spring steel. Overall, I'm happy with it. There are small imperfections that go with it being hand made, but it's minor stuff and just adds to the authentic feel I think. It's definitely solidly built and gives that confidence you can use it hard.

The only negative I could find is that it didn't come very sharp, but I can always fix that myself.

Top quality

I bought this sword not knowing what to expect but man was I ever happy when I received it. You can tell it’s all hand made because of the minor imperfections but the weight to it is so nice it feels like a sword that was made a thousand years ago you can’t go wrong Legacy Arms and you can’t beat Cutting Edges prices!
