Darksword Armory’s Mid-13th Century Sword has a blade crafted from 5160 high carbon steel. The blade has been differentially-tempered to have a softer core hardness of 48-50 HRC and a harder edge of 60 HRC. This type of tempering creates a blade with a softer, flexing, shock-resistant core and a harder edge that resists dulling easily.

Its pommel and crossguard are of steel and the grip is of wood and is tightly wrapped with brown leather for a grip. Its companion scabbard has a core form of wood and it is covered with brown leather and fitted with a steel chape piece and an integrated sword belt.

A sword of this type occupies the transitionary period between chainmail based armor types and the beginning of plate armor becoming more of a force on the battlefield. The blade has a more tapered geometry then its forebears, giving it a better thrusting ability, though the blade has remained wide enough, even at the tip, that it does not sacrifice much cutting ability. The cocked hat pommel has three distinct points that could be used to pommel strike a foe in very close combat, dealing more impact damage than a simple disc or brazil nut pommel would.
