The Darksword Armory Alexandria Sword is our recreation of one of the most famous swords of the 15th century. An Oakeshott Type XVIIIc, this style of sword was heavily influenced by the armor of the day and had a wide-based blade tapering to a thin point. Like many Renaissance swords therefore, the Alexandria is a true cut-and-thrust longsword; capable of piercing vulnerable locations in an opponent’s armor, but also effective as a slashing weapon. The classic steel fittings complete the look of a sword that is in perfect balance between a thing of beauty and a weapon of war.
Blade: 5160 High Carbon Folded Steel.
Dual Tempered HRc 60 / 48-50 at the core
