Double fuller Longsword, 14thC
14th century Longsword based on original sword.
This sword, is inspired by an example which has been seen in several books over the years, first in Ewart Oakeshott's 1991 'Records of the Medieval Sword', and more recently, in the 2015 catalogue of the Deutsches Klingenmuseum's 'Das Schwert: Gestalt und Gedanke' exhibition, where it was loaned from a private collection in the Netherlands.
A textbook example of double-fullered type XIII swords, this 123cm long sword has a hexagonal cross-section with double fuller, gently transitioning to a lenticular cross section in the last third of the blade. While the original sword has been fitted with a modern grip sometime in the last 30 years, this reproduction has been hilted with a leather grip more accurate to during its working lifespan.
Scabbard and belt
It is based on my design for Aculeus Longsword, but with different decoration motifs and fittings, to make it unique. All motifs on the scabbard are inspired by original leather work examples dated to second half of 14th century.
