KINGSTON ARMS (HANWEI)

Listing Detail Tabs

THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE BLUNT VERSION

Sharp version currently unavailable.

A close recreation of the famous Oakeshott Type XVIIIa.4 sword from Records of the Medieval Sword. This sword proves to be a powerful sight on the field of battle and is a perfect accompaniment for a 14th to mid 15th Century man of war.

Our Tourney Series Medieval Sparring Swords from Kingston Arms will set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened thru-tang stainless steel pommel and guard, 2mm rounded edge thickness make these brutal weapons on the battle field. The cord wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword.

The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to about 50 Hrc, providing a long lasting sword.

The guard needs special mention, featuring the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from going loose after a lengthy campaign without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck.
