Type XVIII English Longsword (14th/15th c.) by GrayEyedGringo Type XVIII English Longsword (14th/15th c.) by GrayEyedGringo
The blade is made by Angus Trim, and the custom hilt and scabbard were constructed by Sonny Suttles of Valiant Armoury. The sword is a type XVIII longsword and wouldn't be out of place from the late 14th century to the mid 15th century. You would be hard pressed to find a more capable or handsome sword.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with medieval western weapons, this sword weighs about two and a quarter pounds. Roughly the same weight as its shorter Japanese counterpart.

I'll take a look, thanks man. This one's actually a really nice Atrim blade outfitted with some of the Malatesta's fittings.

Beautiful. I'm familiar with both Gus and Sonny's work, but it's always lovely to see fresh pictures of it. They fit together very nicely. Early 15th century is also my specialty, though I always have a hard time deciding whether I prefer England or Italy.

Thanks very much! As you've seen early 15th century is also my most finely honed point of interest. I too have juggled England and Italy, though I believe I favor England ultimately. The solution I've come up with is day dreaming about remnants of the English mercenary companies operating in Italy.

That's a great solution! Why compromise when the two cultures interacted so much during that point in the Hundred Years War?
Reply
:icongrayeyedgringo:
Agreed. You could imagine an English character that was involved in the mercenary companies in Italy at a younger/middle age and participated in the hundred years war flare ups latter (1420-1425). Definitely one of the most fascinating times...partially due to the fact that classical interest was kicking up again and mixing with the contemporary culture. Great stuff.

I used to have a Hanwei very similar to that one.

Much appreciated folks. Which Hanwei did you own, out of curiosity.
