This replica is based on 16th century drawings of Irish kerns (cethern). They wore small wide swords like this. Characteristic is the pommel that is shaped like a ring. Similar swords have been found all over Ireland, the medieval Irish tradition of ring pommels is estimated to date back to the 13th century. A few originals are nowadays part of the collection of the National Archaeological Museum in Dublin and the Ulster Museum in Belfast. In addition to a ring pommel, the sword also has quatrefoil pierced patterns in the cross-guard, which is typical of Irish medieval swords. The sword has a riveted pommel and a wooden grip wrapped with brown leather. This single-handed sword is delivered including a beautiful brown leather scabbard with a wooden core. The blade and tip are blunt, and suitable for light sword fighting and re-enactment.

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.
