Sir William Marshal Sword-High Carbon
Our single-hand Marshal Sword sets (SH2000, SH2001 - Damascus) new standards of quality and authenticity in broadsword construction. The sword is based on an original, now in a British museum, used by one of England’s finest knights, Sir William Marshal, who served the crown faithfully under Henry II, Richard the Lionheart and Jack Lackland.
The single-hand Marshal Sword is available with either a forged high-carbon steel blade (Model SH2000) or a forged - folded Swedish powder steel blade (Model SH2001). Both blades are identical in handling characteristics and both are tempered to a tough HRC 52.
The blade section features a central ridged fuller and full-length distal taper - a tough test for the bladesmith but resulting in a superb combination of speed and strength.
The grip is leather wrapped and laced and the guard and pommel are elegant in their functional simplicity. The scabbard is leather-covered with steel mounts.
Truly a sword for the connoisseur

- Quality and useReview by Ian Lansley
This sword is excellent. The weight balance is superb, delivering the ability to carry out fast and accurate attacks, while the remaining momentum can be easily used for defense. The blade is "sharp" but could use a little work to hone it properly if required.
Whoever created this design was truly a master of the art, light, fast and strong.
Now I want the folded steel version!
