The one-and-a-half sword is a sword with a size between a single-handed sword and a two-handed sword. It could be used with one hand, but it was also possible to put a second hand on top of the grip and partly on the pommel for extra force.

This sword is a replica of an Oakeshott type XIIa. This is a subtype of the XII type, which is one of the most frequently found swords of the Middle Ages. The XIIa type was presumably designed in response to the improved chain mail and plate armor from the mid-thirteenth century and at the time of the last Crusades. This is one of the first types of one-and-a-half handed swords. A historical example of such a sword can be seen in the Museum of London.

This sword has a blade of carbon steel, with a rounded tip and a battle-ready cedge (2.5 - 3 mm thick). The grip is wrapped in black leather.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
