“Evening Star” Blackened Ornamental Sword
Blackened and brassed European sword
This gorgeous sword is a part of our “Stars of Steel” collection and is meant to be beautiful, graceful, and of course brutal. Inspired by the XV-XIV century, we’re looked at many different historical weapons and combined our favorite aspects to create this work of art.
In Viking times, swords were incredibly expensive and difficult to find, and certainly not something you would see the average person carrying around. By the XV century, though, swords were a very common weapon used as an everyday fighting tool, especially after your larger weapon has broken or if you need to grab something quickly. This particular sword is somewhere between a longsword and an arming sword and is intended to be used either in one hand or with a hand-and-a-half grip.
This sword has lightly curved quillons which prove versatile when protecting yourself or catching an enemy sword. It features a ring hilt followed by a grip that works best in either one hand or with a hand-and-a-half. The blade is fullered and has a graceful looking ricasso and comes to a (blunted) point, with a rounded geometric pommel to finish the bottom of the sword. The blade is blackened, with brassed stainless steel used for the hilt to contrast.
We don’t advise trying to use this sword for actual combat - it’s actually hollow inside and meant to be purely ornamental! If you’re looking to use it to cut a rope or dramatically slice apart a roast pig, that isn’t really going to work either because it’s completely blunt. Instead, we recommend using this as a display piece, as a prop for cosplay, or on your wall as a piece of art. That being said, it is still a heavy item made of steel, so we don’t recommend swinging it around near pets, property, or anything you don’t want to be damaged.
This sword feels nice and balanced in your hand because the blade is made from 1.4mm thick blackened steel alloy. It has a wonderful blued shade to it that turns out amazing in photos and looks great. The sword is finished with high-quality leather around the hilt to give it a textured grip that is easy to hold.
