Aislinn Knightly Sword with Scabbard, 15th C.

This beautiful knightly sword is based on an original from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The sword received its name “Aislinn”, which means vision or dream in Irish, from a former caretaker. Oakeshott classified the sword as a type XV and dated it to the 15th century. However, this temporal classification is often doubted. It is assumed that it could also be a fake from the 19th century, as the hilt of the sword is almost perfectly preserved, while the blade shows severe signs of corrosion.

This replica features a double-edged blade that tapers sharply towards the tip. A fuller runs down about a third of its length and the cutting edges are not sharpened. The grip is made of two black horn scales that are riveted to the full tang. The crossguard, which curves towards the blade, and the wheel pommel are made of bronze.

This sword comes complete with a brown wood-and-leather scabbard equipped with black leather chape and throat and a sword belt made of sturdy black leather. The belt chape and buckle are made of brass and adorned with the motif of a dragon and a lion on a red background.

Please note that this medieval sword is not a battle-ready weapon. It is designed as a collector´s or decoration/display piece and is not suited for combat re-enactment. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume.
