The Archers Sword Museum Quality Ref: S5735M Made by John Barnett The Archers Sword, Museum Quality These swords are maticulously hand crafted. They are the finest and strongest swords available. The tangs are actual full tangs, not the typical rat tail that are found in most decorative swords. The high quality blades are hand forged using EN45 Spring steel to make the blade non brittle and give it a spring like quality that will not warp. Tempered for strength and finished with sharp edges and a point. The Archers Sword design is from around the late 13th century onwards. The short hardwood handle makes it surprisingly easy to handle. Crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago, except that the blades are now forged from high-carbon spring steel, a resource unavailable off-the-shelf to the smiths of the old. The blade has a light polished finish which is closely replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. Fittings are polished steel and all of these swords have leather-covered hardwood scabbards.
