When reproducing this sword, we did not set ourselves the task of making a copy, but to make the same sword but slightly resizing it in accordance with the requirements of the customer. The tip is slightly changed in order to meet the safety requirements of festivals. The source we relied on was the book of Records of the Medieval Sword by Ewart Oakeshott.
