The Arming Sword
The Arming Sword’s blade has a broad four-sided flattened diamond cross-section, typically associated with the close quarter swords of the 14th and 15th C. throughout Medieval Europe. Due to their light weight and potent thrusting abilities, this powerful and effective sword became the prevailing weapon of the 15th C. The Arming sword is faithfully crafted from the original at the Wallace Collection (A460). skillfully crafted with the same dimensions as the original (32″ long, 2″ wide blade) the sword is responsive, exceptionally well balanced, and delivers forceful blows. The Arming sword is a finely crafted, classically styled and a must even for the most discriminating collector!
