The one-and-a-half sword is a sword that had a size between a single-handed sword and a two-handed sword. It could be used with one hand, but you could also put a second hand on top of the grip and partly on the pommel for extra power behind a thrust.
This sword is a replica of an Oakeshott type XVII. This type of sword was popular from around 1355 to 1425. During this period the number of foot soldiers and archers in armies increased. The elite heavily armored knights wore supplements as extra protection against foot soldiers and archers. As a result, the swords that were made during this period were designed for thrusting between the armor plates. During this period, weapons such as the warhammer and the mace were also put into use, which were weapons that could severely damage armor.
This sword is made from a high quality spring steel with a hardness of 50-55 ° Rockwell. It has a black leather grip and a sharp blade and tip. It is supplied including a black scabbard with steel fittings.

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.
