By popular request Kult of Athena commissioned a special production run of this sword which had been out of production by Windlass Steelcrafts. This popular model has now finally been brought back for new and established collectors alike!

Towton; one of the bloodiest battles in the Wars of the Roses lends it name to this early to mid-15th century style bastard sword. The blade is crafted from 1065 high carbon steel and the hilt is steel with a grip of wood. A tightly overlaid and binding wrap of stitched leather over the grip completes the sword. It comes with a leather scabbard with a protective steel chape and a steel locket.

A sword with a sharply tapered profile, the Towton lends itself well to cut-and-thrust use. The tip is well-suited for thrusting and prying into the weaker points of an opponents defense, whilst the blade retains ample width for decisive cutting. The sword can be used both single-handedly or with a two-handed grip and the waisted half of the grip coupled with a scent-stopper pommel comfortably fits the palm of the second hand. This half-tapered form also keeps the grip from feeling clumsy and outsized when in single-handed use. The form of the pommel is also quite suitable as a bludgeon for which to strike the foe, for its shape is similar to a mace.

A versatile blade form for both cutting and thrusting coupled with a hilt that accommodates a range of gripping postures gives many fighting options to the bearer of the Towton. In a skilled swordsman’s hands the agile Towton can deftly switch from one to two-handed use. At range the Towton can pierce and cut and should the fight become an enveloping scrum then the pommel and a half-sword grip can be utilized for a tight melee.
