Sword Description

The short sword is a type of European sword characterized by a cruciform hilt with a one handed with a straight double-edged blade.  It differs from the longsword by the length of the grip and blade. The short sword was prevalent during the late medieval and Renaissance periods (approximately 1350 to 1550), with early and late use reaching the 13th and 17th centuries.  The term bastard sword is used to identify the longsword during the late medieval and Renaissance period. This short sword is 28" long.

 

Blade Materials

The sword is made from pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords with a Rockwell Hardness of 55-56 HRC. The handle is wood with Damascus steel bolsters. It is full tang, comes with a leather sheath, and has 352 layers.

Awesome Sword

It is full tang which is awesome. The blade is sharp and patterned nicely. You can feel the layers. A lot of these "Damascus" blades come stamped but this one is real. Feels like a short sword but has a bigger handle.

Broken

The handle was damaged when it arrived. They immediately gave me a shipping label and processed the return but I needed the sword the day I got it. In all fairness, the box was quite smashed up upon arrival so it could have been damaged in shipping but it did not help the fact that I needed the sword immediately. I might try a different sword in the future since the blade was quite nice though.

Pretty Nice

It is exactly the same as the 37" just shorter. I love the 37" but thought this would have something a little different. Basically a shortsword version of the longsword.
