Edition Medieval War Sword
(Oakeshott Type XII)
of type XII, according to Oakeshott´s typology, is defined by having a
broad and evenly tapering blade. It should have a good point and a fuller
that is 2/3 to 3/4 of the blade length.
This is perhaps the most classic of all blade styles. So much so that
it is close to being the very archetype of the European knightly sword.
We wanted this sword to be an homage to those splendid examples of the
ancient sword makers art. A weapon that is broad and bold with understated
elegance in shapes, lines and volumes.
The heft of the sword is managed by an effective use of nonlinear distal
taper and a deep and well defined fuller. This results in a lively and
responsive feel that invites you to strike with the sword.
The pommel of this sword is of type J: a deep wheel pommel with concave
bevels. It is crowned by a high rivet block. The cross is a version of
style 2: a straight type of octagonal section that swell at the ends and
in the middle.
The outer third of the blade towards the point curves gradually to a sharp
point. This gives a visual balance to the broad base of the blade and
also helps in establishing sweet handling characteristics.
