Medieval Sword From The Mamluk Arsenal

By November 7, 2012Gear

This exceptional medieval sword caught my eye in a Aragorn/Lord of The Rings kind of way. From the wear and tear on this bad boy, I have no doubt this early self-defense tool served its owner well.

“With flat tapering double-edged blade of flattened hexagonal section with a wide shallow fuller extending over half its length on both sides, the forte on both sides incised with a comet-shaped mark retaining traces of latten, and on one side with inscriptions in naskh script.
 
The hilt comprising straight quillons of rectangular section widening towards the tips, later cord-bound leather-covered grip, and large slightly compressed chamfered wheel pommel with rounded button and inlaid on each side with a cross potent in copper and latten.”
