One handed swords that are classified as type XII in the Oakeshott system were widely used by armies of Crusaders during the Middle Ages. The popularity of these swords is reflected by the large number that we still have today and the examples that were immortalized in many paintings. They come in a wonderful variety of shapes. Despite its two fullers, the broad blade is relatively heavy – our Crusader Army one handed sword is predestined for mighty cuts. Thanks to its spiral-shaped, textured wooden grip covered in leather, this sword is always easy to manage. This Crusader Army one handed sword features a distinctive, octagonal pommel decorated with a black cross and a circle of eight golden rivets.
It includes a leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

Price QualityDarrylThis is honestly one of the nicest reproduction swords that I own. It is a really nice quality sword and feels very well balanced in your hand (for a heavy crusader sword). Love this sword. Thoroughly recommend.
