Hanwei’s Practical Mortuary Hilt sword was designed for the reenactor and sport combat enthusiast in mind. The blade has a blunt edge that is 1/16’’ thick and it stays with this thickness all the way to and around the tip. The blade is crafted from 1065 high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of 50 HRC - this hardness is a good compromise to be both hard enough to reduce edge-notching to acceptable levels whilst being flexible enough to keep the blade from being brittle.

The guard and pommel are of steel and the grip is overlaid with black leather. The scabbard is of fiberglass with a steel throat and chape pieces.

Mortuary Hilt swords were so named because sword hilts used by Royalists in the English Civil War often had a portrait and the devices of Charles I, though swords without his portrait were certainly wielded by their Parliamentarian foes. These were typically thick-spined backswords - a cut-and-thrust design that was commonly used by the Cavalrymen of the conflict.
