Details

The legend of William Wallace (1270-1305) is also the legend of the mighty sword that he once used. Or "they" say he used, because although a "Wallace sword" is on exhibit in Stirling, Scotland, it has never been proven that William Wallace actually used it. The hilt of that sword is typical of the 16th century – 200 years after his death – but the fact that the entire sword was repaired at the time is also documented. The other problem is that the sword lacks a fuller and therefore does not fit into any of the Oakeshott categories. It could be that Wallace had his sword made at a local forge where the blacksmith was ignorant of the trends of the day.

 

Hand forged of 1095 carbon steel, the blade of this sword is approx. 120 cm long. It has a slight taper and ends in a pear-shaped, riveted pommel. The grip is made of wood wrapped in dark brown leather that also includes the ricasso. A crossguard with a rectangular profile and a langet with a decorative pattern complete the hilt.
