This sword is a replica of the 13th century original owned by the well-known English knight Sir William Marshall. Sir William Marshall is buried in Temple Church in London, but his sword is part of the collection of the British Museum.
This beautiful sword is carefully handmade with attention for all small details. It has a damast steel double-edged blade. This sword is typed as an Oakeshott type XII according to the Oakeshott sword typification. It was a modern sword for its era, provided with a sharper tip than its predecessors (Oakeshott type X and XI). As a result the sword could easier pierce through hauberks.

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.
The original method of making Damascus steel from Wootz steel was lost in the modern era. Nowadays, the name Damascus steel is used as a generic term for pattern welded / laminated or melted steel made out of two or more different steel types.
