Information for Norman Sword:

with Leather Grip and Leather Scabbard.
Tempered Blade

For nearly two millennia the sword was considered to be one of the main weapons on the battlefield. For much of that time, swords designed towards the cut were preferred over swords oriented to the thrust. This trend continued throughout the Viking age and into the early Middle Ages. Mail, body armor made from thousands of interconnecting iron rings, was considered to be the state of the art in body defense for much of that time. Swords with broad flat cutting surfaces were found to give good service against this type of defense. As mail continued to advance towards the all-encompassing suits of the high Middle Ages swords also began to show subtle advancements in design. Sometime in the 11th century a sword design began to appear that can be considered as the first step on the long road to a truly efficient cut and thrust weapon.
