Just archetypal knightly sword used in middle age.
These blades are known to swell slightly in width just below the hilt, before the edges begin their virtually straight run to the point. Fullers generally run to around, or just over, half the length of the blade, creating a tip area that is wide and flat and is optimized for shearing blows. The cross-section of these blades is best defined as lenticular.
The handle is made anatomical of dry beech wood, strenghtened by linen. Fit the measurement of customer hand. Made for comfortable grip. Surface is made of double pigment´s red leather.
