Here is a sword illustrating some of the finest quality achieved by the smiths of the middle ages. The combination of form and function are brought together with great efficiency. This 14th century sword is often identified as an exceptional example of the knightly weapon.

It has a well-proportioned wheel pommel with circular inset centers and a tall pommel nut. The arms of the guard taper evenly as they curve toward the blade. The grip is hardwood covered in leather and the furniture is done in steel.
