Black Prince longsword - Oakeshott XVa

This is the Legacy Arms / Generation 2 version of a 14th century longsword from the personal collection of Ewart Oakeshott, purportedly originally owned by Edward, Prince of Wales: hero of Crecy and Poitiers, son of Edward III and father of Richard II, but never king in his own right. This fast and vibrant sword type is dedicated to thrusting but also strikes with hard authority. The blade is hand tempered 5160 high carbon steel with a contoured leather wrapped wood hilt and a blackened steel guard and pommel - and it comes with a matching leather wrapped wood scabbard with polished steel fittings.

length: 44"
blade: 34"
hilt: 6 3/4"
balance point: 2 1/4"(!)
weight: 3 lb 6 oz
