Knights Riding Sword, Type XVI

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. Arnold I Langraph of Cleve, + 1320 in Stiftskirche at Cleve, and 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.

Accurate reproduction . Sturdy . Those are the good points . About 6 ozs. to heavy . Sword itself weighs 2lbs 13 ozs. Blade edge wanders back and forth out to point . Handle and sheath dye keeps coming off in my hand. Cross guard crooked to blade . Handle leather stops 1/8 inch from pommel , wood shows from end of leather to pommel . Overall quality below average . Save your money for something else.
