An ideal Arming Sword
The Discepolo One Handed Sword is designed on Oakeshott Type XV, a type of blade that was common from mid 1300 extending up to the mid 1500 with more complex hilts too. The Discepolo One Handed Sword has an extreme triangular profile taper and a diamond section, with an acute point that is, as usual, rounded and thickened for safety and study. It is an excellent pairing with our Buckler.
