Arming Sword with Fishtail Pommel
Arming sword with fishtail pommel. This sword has been in my personal collection since around 1993. It was made by Windlass Steelcrafts more than twenty years ago, and in my opinion had the best weight and balance of any of their arming swords at that time. This sword is used, but in very nice condition. It has never been cut with or fought with. Windlass Steelcrafts sharpened the edge. There is minor pitting from a finger print on the blade. There is a heavy patina to the bronze hardware which could be easily removed with Metal Glo, though I prefer the patina to bright and shiny. There are some indentations in the leather grip near the crossguard. They are visible in the fourth photo. Hand crafted from high carbon spring steel with a full tang. Bronze pommel and crossguard. Leather grip. Complete with black leather scabbard. Ships with a sharp edge. 39" overall with a 32" blade. Weighs 1 pounds 15.8 ounces.
