Type XIV is the last sword in Oakeshotts typification that was meant for piercing chainmail. It has a short, wide and pointy blade. The profile is quite flat and sometimes has a small middle rib. The fuller covers half of the blade and is quite wide, but some fullers are narrow. The grip has a length of 9,5 to 11,5 cm and a thick part of the blade continues into the pommel. The pommel is always round, sometime wide and flat. The cross-guard is quite wide and often bended. Type XIV has a functional tip and because of its blade it is suitable for both hitting and stabbing. Swords of type XIV were popular between 1260 and 1340, but just a few originals have been excavated.
