This 13th Century dragon sword from Red Dragon Armoury has a tempered blade of EN42J high carbon steel with a hardness of 45 HRc at its core and about 50 HRc at the edges. The guard and pommel are crafted from steel and the blade is stoutly preened over the pommel for an overall durable hilt construction. The grip is wood with a tightened wrap of leather. The sword comes with a wooden scabbard which is wrapped in tight leather and finished with a steel chape and an integrated sword belt for wear.
Dragon sword features include silver blade, black guard, brown handle, black wheel pommel. The blades are designed to flex in the last one-third of their length towards the tip, allowing for much safer thrusting than with conventional wooden wasters or shinai. The blade/tang joint is reinforced by a high tensile steel rod running along the full length of the handle, so removing the handle flex typically associated with plastic training swords. These synthetic-bladed swords also provide an excellent option for Theatrical use, being inherently safer than steel or aluminum. The variety of interchangeable parts offered by Red Dragon also provides an economical means to create many different styles of sword on a single blade. The ball shaped quillon finials and rounded pommels of the longsword and single-hand sword are designed for sparring safety, as are the pommel and basket of the basket-hilt sword. The grips are manufactured from a rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer, designed to absorb the impact of strikes and to provide a tight fit on the tangs.These synthetic-bladed swords also provide an excellent option for Theatrical use as well. Overall: 41.5″ blade length: 34″ handle length: 4.5″ weight: 1lb 9oz point of balance: 5.5″

Our Red Dragon Combat “Bastard Sword” is designed to replicate a 13th-century longsword. The broad blade is designed for slashing, and excels at this when sharpened. The 1mm edge makes this sword useable for HEMA (drilling not sparring) and stage combat, although some light surface nicks are inevitable due to the thinness of the edge. If being used for either of these disciplines, we would recommend rounding off the tip for safety. Replica of a 13th-century long sword.
