    This superb sword is copied from an Oakeshott Type XVII found in the great Ouse River at Ely in Cambridgeshire, England and is housed in the Fitzwilliam Museum. It's a leading example of the Sempach family of swords, named for two very similar swords found in graves at the site of the Battle of Sempach fought near Zurich in 1386. This is a long thrusting sword and like the original, surprisingly light, beautifully balanced and "ready" in the hand. The pommel and guard are steel. The two-hand grip is wood covered in cord and leather, while the blade is well tempered 1095 high carbon steel. Comes with scabbard. This sword can be seen in E. Oakeshott's book Records of the Medieval Sword. An important sword type for your collection or a great sword to start one with. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    I put a new wrap on mine and like it. Not sure this one is much of a thrusting sword as the blade needs to be more stiff.

    like the balance,but for a two handed weapon seems to light and blade a little frail to stand up to combat.
