This is a beautiful, historically accurate, hand forged replica sword made from EN45 spring steel from one of UK's leading weaponry designers and forgers. Made with a full tang that is peened riveted over the pommel.

Edward I (17 June 1239 – 7 July 1307), also known as Edward Longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots, was King of England from 1272 to 1307. The first son of Henry III, Edward was involved early in the political intrigues of his father's reign, which included an outright rebellion by the English barons. In 1259, he briefly sided with a baronial reform movement, supporting the Provisions of Oxford. After reconciliation with his father, however, he remained loyal throughout the subsequent armed conflict, known as the Second Barons War. After the Battle of Lewes, Edward was hostage to the rebellious barons, but escaped after a few months and joined the fight against Simon de Montfort. Montfort was defeated at the Battle of Evesham in 1265, and within two years the rebellion was extinguished. With England pacified, Edward left on a crusade to the Holy Land. The crusade accomplished little, and Edward was on his way home in 1272 when he was informed that his father had died. Making a slow return, he reached England in 1274 and he was crowned king at Westminster on 19 August. Key Features

This sword comes with a dull edge, but can be sharpened in our workshops for £20.
We hand sharpen all our swords to ensure the temper of the blade is not compromised and use a course stone to achieve the angle and a fine stone to finish the cutting edge.

To mantain and keep your sword blade sharp we recommend you use the puck sharpener after evey use.
