The Henry V arming sword is modeled after the sword hung over the tomb of one of England's great warrior kings. The single-handled cut-and-thrust weapon combines a relatively short but 1566 high carbon steel blade with elegant down-swept quillons and a wheel pommel. This sword is very fast and well-balanced, it just flows in the hand. The blade tapers from wide at the hilt to narrow at the tip - perfect for thrusts into the gaps of gothic armor. This is one of my very favorite short arming swords. Leather covered wood scabbard included.
Once more, into the breach! -- Henry V, via William Shakespeare
