Our Tourney Series Medieval Sparring Swords from
Kingston Arms will set a new standard in this price point of
re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction,
peened thru-tang stainless steel pommel and guard, 2mm rounded edge
thickness make these two brutal weapons on the battle field. The cord
wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross
section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is
large enough to accomodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the
length of both pieces to lighten and counter balance the swords
overall. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a
stainless chape comes with each sword. The first Tourney Series models are the Viking Sword and Single-hand Swords with others coming soon.
The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to about 50 Hrc, providing a long lasting sword.
The guard needs special mention, featuring the King-Peen system.
King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is
pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from
going loose after a lengthy campaign without compromising the strength
of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine
these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when
