Kingston Arms' Tourney Series Medieval Sparring set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features include thru-tang handle construction, peened thru-tang stainless steel pommel and guard, and 2mm rounded edge thickness. The cord wrapped leather grip is large enough to accomodate armoured hands and the oval cross section and slight barrel keep fatigue at bay. A respectable fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and balance the sword. Includes a wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape.

The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to about 50 Hrc, providing a long lasting sword.

The guard featurs the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from coming loose after lengthy use, without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck.
