Immerse yourself in medieval majesty with the Arming Sword, also known as the Knightly Sword. Revered as a fundamental symbol of knighthood during the High Middle Ages, the Arming Sword boasts a single-handed, straight double-edged blade design. Used primarily for thrusting and cutting, this sword was the go-to weapon for knights across the European continent.
The blade of our Arming Sword is diligently crafted from Pattern-welded Damascus steel. This steel is known for its strength and durability, achieved through a careful process of heat-treating and folding carbon steel. Our sword comprises 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, resulting in an impressive 352 layers of hardened durability and unyielding strength.
The blade boasts a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC, indicating optimal hardness. This is made possible by the high carbon Damascus steel that forms its core, specifically the 1095 steel variant, renowned for its high carbon content, the pinnacle of carbon steel used in swords. This unique blend of materials provides the blade with an exceptional edge and remarkable resilience to withstand fierce collisions.
Complementing the blade is the traditionally styled wooden handle, offering both comfort and secure grip during usage. Each Arming Sword is delivered with a well-crafted leather sheath for protection and storage.
