Hand Forged Medieval SwordThis sword was acquired at a renaissance faire where they were creating swords in a forge, using reasonably authentic methods. It is very simple in design, but quite functional. Technically I bought it for my boyfriend so I point a finger at him for the sad rusty shape it has fallen into.
Here is how it compares with the other swords in size. The hand forged sword is the second from the top.
I love the hilt on this, the grip is leather with a metal wire on top and is very sturdy.
