Cold Steel Man At Arms La Fontaine Sword of War

Cold Steel Man At Arms La Fontaine Sword of War
Designed by noted swordsman Luke LaFontaine and bearing his name, the LaFontaine Sword of War combines elements of a 16th Century “Sword of War” with a “Complex Hilt Longsword”.

Not carried on a belt or baldric, rather it was held in hand, rested on the shoulder or simply carried by a manservant or page.

Designed primarily for battlefield combat, it was almost as big as a Zweihander or a Great Sword; with a long double edged blade, elaborate ring guards, counter guards and peaked quillons, a closed ricasso for looping a finger through the cross for added control, and a heavy counter-balancing pommel that made a fearsome weapon in its own right!

A versatile and complex weapon with many advantages that should be apparent to any Historical European Martial Artist, it was also a symbol of prestige that said much about the status and prowess of its wielder. Made in our signature “Man at Arms” style, the LaFontaine Sword of War features a 1055 Carbon Steel blade that has been deeply blued to an inky black sheen. The LaFontaine Sword of War is fully sharpened and supplied complete with a thick leather and steel scabbard.
