Edition Medieval Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVa)
this one after Bertrand du Guesclin (1320-1380), Constable of France from
1370 to 1380. He is considered one of the greatest French soldiers of
his time and one of the important figures of the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453).
The title constable was usually held by a courtier in charge of keeping
the horses of his lord, coming from the Latin "comes stabulari" (count
of the stables). The office 'constable' was often held by the person in
charge of the defence of a castle -- even today, there is a Constable
of the Tower of London. In some countries, such as France, this title
developed into a high military rank.
This is a short and handy hand-and-a-half sword with a very stiff blade,
primarily for thrusting, but pretty decent for cutting as well. When you
handle these swords they are very ready in your hand.
One of the quickest types there is, it follows your intentions at quicksilver
like speed. Because of the very narrow point the spine can be made quite
thick without the blade becoming cumbersome. This makes for superior stiffness
and a very effective thrust.
