In virtually all cases, the shipments are arriving as expected, but many are taking longer than any of us are used to.

This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

Forged by Balaur Arms, this Type XIIa longsword fits in well with swords throughout 14th century Europe and the origin of its blade design hearkens to the 13th century when increasingly tapered swords were developed to improve their thrusting ability. A classic Medieval design with a lenticular cross-section to its blade, these swords had long fullers to reduce unnecessary weight from the mid section with minimal loss to overall durability.

The blade is crafted from 5160 high carbon steel to possess a spring temper and a 56-58 HRc hardness. The hilt is steel and the blade is mounted and secured into the hilt with a stout peen on the pommel. The tang is quadrangular in shape to better resist shifting or loosening against the grip. The grip is fashioned from seasoned teak wood and bound in quality leather.

The companion scabbard of seasoned teak wood is overlaid in leather, capped with a steel chape.

Please Note: The older design of this sword (as seen in the video) has an integrated sword belt. The new version has omitted this integrated sword belt for a bare scabbard which can be used for a wider variety of mounting systems for wear which are applicable to a wider range of body types.
