This sword has Oakeshott's Type XVIII's famous diamond cross section, which is typical of the short swords employed by knights and men at arms in the 15th century. Small chinks, exposed gaps, and joints in plate armour would be found with the stiff blade and acute tip. This necessitated a sword with fast movements and precise point control, as opposed to the wider swords commonly associated with medieval knights. The Type XVIII isn't merely a thrusting sword; it also features a steady tapering curve to the point, which makes cutting against unarmored adversaries very effective.
The blade is made of hand-forged 9260 spring steel that has been mono-tempered and flat ground for a lovely satin finish. The fittings are made of high-quality stainless steel and are designed to compliment Gus's design. The grip has a solid wooden core that is cord-wrapped for strength and covered with textured leather. The scabbard is made of solid wood and has a stitched leather wrap with a stainless steel chape.
