Great Ouse River Sword
c. 1370-1400 A.D.
This superb collectible sword is copied from an Oakeshott Type XVII found in the great Ouse River at Ely and displayed at the nearby Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridgeshire. It's a leading example of the "Sempach" family of swords, named for two very similar swords unearthed from gravesites where the Battle of Sempach was fought near Zurich in 1386. This is a long, thrusting sword and like the original, it's surprisingly light, masterfully balanced and "ready" in the hand. The pommel and guard are steel and the two-handed hardwood grip is hand-covered in cord and leather. The blade is hand-forged of 1095 high carbon steel, tempered for strength and meticulously polished to a superb finish. Hand-crafted by the famed metalsmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts. Complete with a leather scabbard. Can be professionally sharpened for an additional fee. Please note that sharpened swords cannot be returned.

Overall: 46" Blade: 36"Lx2"W. 3/16" thick. 2 lbs./12 oz.
