The Regent
Limited Edition Medieval War Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVIIIb)

This sword is inspired by the beautiful long swords favored in areas of Germanic influence during the mid to late 15th century.

It has a long hollow ground blade with edges that arc gracefully to an acute point. The raised midrib gives this blade a good stiffness for its weight while the keen edges are crisp and well defined.

The blade is a classic example of a type classified as Oakeshott XVIIIb (according to The Sword in the Age of Chivalry), combining efficient width at the cutting section with a strong awl-shaped point. The grip is of hexagonal section and has the typical waisted profile.

Its hilt is inspired by that on a sword found in the Boden See (dated to the mid 15th C), kept at the Landesmuseum, Zürich.

The pommel is of Type V, a flamboyant version of the fishtail style. The cross is slim with an octagonal section and clubbed ends and can be classified as a version of cross style 2 according to Oakeshott's system.

This is the goal for this design: a quick, responsive and efficient cutter with a forward pivot point placed close to the point. A hollow ground blade can have a thick and stiff spine and still be relatively light for its size. This is an important aspect of this design.
