This museum replica is based on the medieval sword that was found in the river Witham, near Lincoln. The original dates between 1250 and 1350 and is on display in the British museum. The sword is decorated in the Romanesque style and is known for its inscription, which has not been deciphered yet. Similar swords were found in Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands. A comparable sword from a Viking grave in Finland may point to a late Viking origin.

This sword is 96 cm long, with a blade of 81,5 cm long and max. 5,5 cm wide. It has two fullers and is decorated on both sides. The one side shows the inscription +NDXOXCHMDRCHDXORVI+  and the other a series of unknown symbols. The original decoration is inlaid with gold wire. In our version, the decoration is engraved.

This museum replica is developed and made by Celtic Britain.

This sword is an Oakeshott type XII.

This sword is custom made.

Review by Patrick, Posted on 21-06-2015, 5 Stars.
Een degelijk en prachtig zwaard! De eerste tijden is het wennen om met een historisch correcte Oakeshott type XII kling te vechten, maar meteen is duidelijk waarom dit type zwaard in de middeleeuwen zo populair was. Hij ligt erg goed in de hand, heeft een zeer goed balanspunt en is ideaal voor zowel houwen als steken. Zelf vecht ik met dit zwaard waarbij ik verschillende schilden gebruik. Dit zwaard is een prijsklasse duurder (voor mij een overweging) maar bij dit model merk je echt het verschil.
