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.

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.

Reviews for product "Single-handed sword Oakeshott XIV"

Stupenda il servizio di affilatura e ben eseguito nulla da ridire.
Leggera, bella, versatile e soprattutto ben bilanciata con una punta devastante.
Il servizio di affilatura è super consigliato vi viene fornita una lama ben centrata, appena fuori dal pacco ho trovato un po di residui sulla lama del processo di affilatura ma nulla che non si possa togliere con una leggera passata di pietra.
Conclusione = la ricompererei assolutamente

Een prima zwaard voor 70 euro, redelijk duurzaam en goed bestand tegen roest, mocht het toch gaan roesten dan pak je gewoon wat schuurpapier en een tandenborstel. Met een minuutje glimt hij weer aan de spiegel. De constructie is wat minder; het zwaard is niet altijd symmetrisch en in mijn geval is het lemmet zelfs een klein beetje krom, maarja het kost dan ook maar 70 euro. Ideaal voor beginnende re-enactors of mensen met een wat kleiner budget.

This is an absolutley beautiful sword for the money. I didn't use it (and would not use it) in any kind of battle, even just hitting wood. But as long as Depeeka sword are concerned this one is PERFECT! The blade is straight, the fuller is nicely defined and deep and the it dosen't rattle. I reccomend it!

I must admit i am rather stumped. This is a beautiful arming sword, historically correct for an Oakeshott XIV, the length is as described and the weight is actually 1200g not 1400g as described which makes this sword 200grams lighter than advertised so its even better. It feels light and nimble in my hand just like a proper sparring sword should and the construction seems to be perfect as well. After multiple tests i found that nothing came loose, no rattles or wobbles from any component. I haven't put the sword under any proper stress via sparring yet but so far i have no worries. The fuller is very straight and consistent and only has a few very slight misalignments however this further shows that it was been handmade and not machine made. The blade is sharp at the tip and blunt on the sides however still sharp enough to deal damage. The blade is finely polished to a shiny steel finish. The Point-Of-Balance is roughly 5-7cm past the quillons. The quillons and wheel pommel are polished more giving them a rather silver look which nicely distinguishes them from the blade. From the weight and feel i assume the grip is wooden with leather stitched around it, the stitching is tight and good quality and looks hand-done.

So that's why i am stumped. I was dubious when i purchased this sword as i assumed something had to be wrong with it but what i received for my £61 was a very light, historically correct, handmade, tightly constructed, well made sword. My only explanation is that the sword was listed with the incorrect pricing !

Supermooi zwaard, zeker voor zijn prijs. Het is een nauwkeurige basering op een Oakeshott type XIV

Superbe épée, très bien réalisée pour un prix plus que correct. La garde ne bouge pas et le cuir sur le manche est bien cousu/collé. La pointe de mon exemplaire est légèrement pliée, mais je ne suis franchement pas mécontent de mon achat !

Spade in generale molto valide. Della mia son contento

Preciosa Espada, equilibrada, bien construida, merece la pena comprarla, nada que envidiar a Espadas de otras marcas y mucho mas caras. recomendable e imprescindible para cualquier coleccion sin arruinarse.

I purchased this sword a few months ago and I have to say that I was and still am blown away by the quality at for the price.

The balance in the hand is excellent, not perfect but certainly gives good feedback when you're fencing with it. It makes for very quick cuts and reposts.

I can honestly say that for the price you will not find a better arming sword than this. I've handled three hundred euro arming swords that don't feel better than this in the hand. This really is the best value sword on the market.

ottima replica, ma purtroppo dopo un solo utilizzo, anche se ben tenuta e curata, si presentano già delle macchie di ruggine, e necessita di intervento immediato.

Spada di ottima qualità nonostante il range di prezzo: nessuna sbavatura di colla, nessun graffio o intaccatura sull'acciaio, nessun movimento della guardia, cuciture sull'impugnatura ordinate e ben strette, la mia lama presenta solo una lievissima torsione, ma quasi impercettibile (e ininfluente trattandosi comunque di un pezzo decorativo).

buona e fedele riproduzione coerente con l'originale, ideale per "rappresentazione senza uso in battaglia", immagine a grande impatto visivo ..scelta obbligata per il periodo storico senza dovere accendere il mutuo per pagarla.......consegna esattamente nei tempi stabiliti....grazie!!!

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