Product Description

Henry V Sword - Original: Dates before 1422. Westminster Abbey, England. Type XVIII, Pommel-type: J.1 Cross-style: 9. This sword probably hung above the chantry of King Henry V until it either fell, or was taken down and stowed away in an old chest in a room in the S. Triforium.

Henry V, British monarch of the early 15th century, was not just a ruler but also an accomplished warrior who began fighting as early as age fourteen, when he fought the Welsh forces of Owain Glyndwr. Throughout his life, Henry V fought in many battles, including against the French in the 100 Years War. It is no wonder then that he would have chosen such a practical, no-nonsense weapon. Ewart Oakeshott described this sword as "one of the most beautiful medieval swords to handle I have ever known." He also stated " In 1951 I spent a good deal of time with it."

Generation 2 has replicated this sword from a drawing. They have painstakingly recreated this sword according to the specifications. It was requested that the sword have a hollow pommel and that the blade be hollow-ground just like the original. He also wanted us to keep the weight near 2 lbs., which is what the original weighs. Ours came in at 2 lbs. 13 oz., a little heavier.

But here is where it is heavier. We are not capable of casting a hollow pommel, which certainly would have been lighter than our hollow pommel. I do not mind explaining how we made our pommel, so that you can judge for yourself the time we put into replicating this sword.

We started with 1/8" plate steel and made the circular band. Then we took two more 1/8" thick plate and made the front and back of the pommel, welded them together, ground and polished it smooth. I do believe this is where our extra weight comes from.

This sword does exemplify attributes of a knightly sword of the highest quality. It has superb balance making it an exceptional fighting sword and excellent control of point for thrusting.
