Details

Designed by noted swordsman Luke LaFontaine and bearing his name, the LaFontaine Sword of War combines elements of a 16th Century “Sword of War” with a “Complex Hilt Longsword”.

Not carried on a belt or baldric, rather it was held in hand, rested on the shoulder or simply carried by a manservant or page.

Designed primarily for battlefield combat, it was almost as big as a Zweihander or a Great Sword; with a long double edged blade, elaborate ring guards, counter guards and peaked quillons, a closed ricasso for looping a finger through the cross for added control, and a heavy counter-balancing pommel that made a fearsome weapon in its own right!

A versatile and complex weapon with many advantages that should be apparent to any Historical European Martial Artist, it was also a symbol of prestige that said much about the status and prowess of its wielder. Made in our signature “Man at Arms” style, the LaFontaine Sword of War features a 1055 Carbon Steel blade that has been deeply blued to an inky black sheen. The LaFontaine Sword of War is fully sharpened and supplied complete with a thick leather and steel scabbard.
