Type XIIIa

15th C. sword.

The Longford, type XIIIa Sword, is perhaps the most famous of all sword types of the medieval period. Also known as the Great Sword, the Longford, named after the Longford Castle in Wiltshire, England, was used throughout Europe at the height of the medieval period. An essential weapon among the nobility, the Great sword was a powerful and reliable medieval weapon of choice against the pikes, spears and heavy cavalry of the late 13th - 15th century.

Greatly feared for its brute strength and speed, the Great sword became an essential weapon among the armies of the late medieval period. Wide blade, long and fast, the great sword became known as the first line of defense against cavalry and the heavy plate armor of the late medieval period.

Hand crafted and properly engineered for durability in combat, the Longford is a very solid, responsive, and well balanced Medieval sword. The Longford boasts a long, tapered blade common to 15th Century medieval swords. An attractive, curled guard, scentstopper pommel and deep fuller complete the sword nicely.

The blade, hand forged with 5160 High Carbon Steel, is skillfully Dual Hardened for precise cutting while remaining flexible for enduring combat. In a nutshell, the Longford is a finely crafted sword that is built to last !
