Edition Medieval Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVI)
Type XVI swords
were developed to make good use of an acute thrusting point, while still
being dedicated to cutting.
The Prince and the Squire swords are built on the same blade. A wide base,
a deep and well defined fuller and an outer third of the blade that gradually
curves to an awl shaped point, makes this sword into an efficient cut
and thrust design. The gradually diminishing of the mass towards the point
results in a sword with a very precise and agile point control.
The Prince is a more lavish version for a gentleman or lady with a taste
for the exclusive.
It has a hilt that is sculpted in curving planes and facets. The cross
is a version of Oakeshott style 8: It has a hexagonal cross section and
is very solid in the middle. The arms curve towards the point rather than
having sharply turned ends as might be most common. The bronze pommel
is a faceted type K, inspired from an original sword in the national museum
in Kopenhagen. The grip on this sword is octagonal in section with a riser
in the middle.
