This one-of-a-kind arming sword was designed with historical fencing in mind, but created with a deep fondness for the fantastical, as seen by the hand-engraved dragon on the pommel, carved with chisel and burin.

The pommel itself is hand-forged using traditional blacksmithing techniques. It is hollow to fine-tune the balance, and canted ten degrees for a right-handed user in the historical fashion.

The crossguard is heat-treated for additional durability, and combined with the broad triangular blade provides sturdy hand protection when correctly angled.

The grip is carved from oak, then wrapped in linen thread and and midnight blue kidskin.

This sword would make a magnificent tool for sword and buckler fencing, as well as in its own right. Its balance is light and nimble, ready for whatever adventure lies ahead of you.
