The Hastings (#1311)


“The Hastings” is an elegant design fostered by the classic hand-and-a-half sword of the Noman knights. Inspired by an Oakeshott Sub-Type XIIIa, this version has a double fuller which extends to ¾ the length of the blade. The sword is named after the Battle of Hastings, one of, if not, the most important battles in English history. The Battle of Hastings took place on October 14th 1066, and marked the end of Anglo-Saxon rule in Britain as well as leading to the introduction of the common law.
