The Baron Sword (#1550)

The Baron Longsword 

Type XVIa


Our latest sword, The Baron is an extremely well balanced Medieval weapon that is fun to wield. We are very proud of this piece. It is light, responsive, seamless and a true joy to wield. Exemplifying the spirit and aesthetic of pre-Renaissance Italy, the Baron Sword is a classic transitory piece. The Baron longsword is based on the Oakeshott Type XVIa design, a style of longsword that was an evolutionary step between the arming swords of the Middle Ages and the fencing longswords of the Renaissance. The long, double-fullered blade performs incredibly well when put through its paces, straddling the line between light handling and power. Steel fittings and a scentstopper pommel complete this piece, a powerful reminder of the early days of Italy’s transformation into the hear of Renaissance Europe.
