This medieval Acre Crusader Broadsword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a formidable weapon of proven worth. This classic knightly sword was ideal for sword and shield or sword and buckler combat, whether on foot or horseback. The Acre crusader sword is a stout and fearsome blade that takes advantage of its heft, width, and center, and gravity to deliver deadly slashing cuts and hacking blows as well as thrusts.

One can easily imagine how this weapon shredded both mail and leather armors across Europe and Asia-minor for centuries. With a wide cross-guard of over 8", it's no sword for the softhearted or weak-spirited. Its practical cruciform hilt with single-hand grip and disc pommel was to be the functional model for countless other sword styles to follow. To know why and how the Medieval warrior became so successful you could do no better than starting with this blade.

Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

I am not in possession of this particular  peice, nevertheless  I find most anything it it's category  from Atlanta to be above satisfactory.

I have more of a question.
Is this "matching scabbard solid like the 1870s  dragoon Saber  scabbard? Effectively making it two weapons in one.

If so I will be putting one of these in my collection.
If the scabbard is wood and leather, I also wonder if custom peices may be asked for and fabricated.

Now that's a sword
Great balance and heft.  You can tell this sword is no toy even before taking it from box.  Could be a killing machine in the hands of a skilled fighter.  Easy to imagine yourself being a skilled fighter with its ease of movement.
