During the English-Scottish Wars, the King of England was preoccupied with the Hundred Years’ War in France.  The border defense thereby fell largely to the Percy Family of North Umberland. During a border raid, the Scottish leader, Archibald IV, Earl of Douglas, was captured at a battle on Homildon Hill by the Percys, led by the younger Sir Henry "Hotspur" Percy. Henry IV demanded the prisoner so he could collect the ransom himself. This demand, though obeyed, was the seed that began the long Percy Family revolt that ended years later with the Battle of Bramham Moor. Hotspur was considered the greatest knight of the realm and held honor sacred.

We have named this hand and half sword for Hotspur and that battle. The fullers are engraved in Latin with the inscription Who lives in falsehood slays his soul; whose speech is false, his honor, something Hotspur took to heart. The blade is from well-tempered high carbon steel, the wood grip is wrapped in fine black cord and the detailed parts have a dark bronze finish. Leather wrapped scabbard has matching bronze fittings. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for an additional fee.
  • Overall: 43-1/2"
  • Blade: 34" long, 1-7/8" wide, 3/16" thick
  • Wt: 3 lbs/ 4 oz

Nicely put together. Can't fault anything on the fit and finish. As usual for Windlass large blades, the blade is a bit on the thin side, and lacking in distal taper. The balance and harmonics are in the right areas, so it handles well.
