This superb sword is copied from an Oakeshott Type
XVII found in the great Ouse River at Ely in Cambridgeshire, England and
is housed in the Flitzwilliam Museum. It's a leading example of the "Sempach"
family of swords, named for two very similar swords found in graves at
the site of the Battle of Sempach fought near Zurich in 1386. This is a
long thrusting sword and like the original, surprisingly light,
beautifully balanced and "ready" in the hand. The pommel and guard are
steel. The two-hand grip is wood covered in cord and leather, while the
blade is well tempered 1095 high carbon steel. Comes with scabbard. This
sword can be seen in E. Oakeshott's book
"Records of the Medieval Sword".
An important sword type for your collection or a great sword to start
one with. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
