This single-handed sword has a length of approx. 90 cm and a blade of 72 cm and a max. width of 5 cm. The simple decorated pommel and the cross-guard were typical for their era. The cross-guard is slightly bended for parrying enemy blows. The wooden grip is covered with leather for a good grip.

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.

This sword is an Oakeshott type XIV.

This item is semi-sharp and designed for decorative purposes. It can be made razor sharp at a surcharge.

Dit zwaard is zijn prijs meer dan waard. Ik heb hem gekocht en was erg blij verrast over de afwerking van dit wapen.
