The Norman swords, with their distinctive cruciform guards and brazil-nut pommels, are similar in weight and static balance and offer virtually identical handling characteristics. Both are harmonically balanced Ð to optimize cutting ability in the case of the sharp version and to provide authentic handling characteristics for the re-enactor. The blades are forged in 5160 high carbon steel and marquenched to HRc50-52, allowing superior edge retention on the sharp and anti-burr safety on the blunt. Grips are wood-cored and leather-covered over a cord wrap. Overall length: 36 5/16" Blade length: 30 11/16" Grip length: 5" Weight: 2lb 8oz

The sword is light, sharp and well balanced. I think it will look good on knights' tournaments in Poland. I recommend to everyone both a shop and a sword.
