The Paul Chen / Hanwei Sir William Marshall Sword is based on an original, now in a British museum, used by one of Englands finest knights, Sir William Marshall, who served the crown faithfully under Henry II, Richard the Lionheart and Jack Lackland. This sword features a sharpened, forged & folded Swedish powder steel blade, tempered to a tough HRC 52. The blade section features a central ridged fuller with clearly visible damascus pattern and full-length distal taper - a tough test for the bladesmith but resulting in a superb combination of speed and strength. The grip is leather wrapped and laced and the guard and pommel are elegant in their functional simplicity. The scabbard is leather-covered with steel mounts. Truly a sword for the connoisseur.
