Details

Oliver Cromwell (1599 - 1658) was a powerful figure in English history during and after the English Civil War, during which he rose from the rank of Captain of Horse to Lord Protector of England. His sword, said to have been carried at the battle of Drogheda in 1649, has been remarkably well preserved and is displayed in the permanent collection of the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England.

Hanwei's Cromwell Sword is an accurate replica of the original. The sword has “mortuary” hilt with a blackened guard decorated with a gold foliage pattern, and a wire-wound sharkskin grip. While the original sword does not have a scabbard, Hanwei's Cromwell sword comes with a scabbard of a design typical of the period.
