The particularly striking hilt features a highly detailed British lion motif and comes complete with a matching folding guard that locks to the scabbard. For contrast, the grip is made of rich black leather and bound in highly polished brass wire. Complementing the hilt is an equally rich yet sturdy scabbard. Made of thick black leather and heavily reinforced with a polished brass chape, throat and hanging rings, its elegant enough for the most formal occasions yet stout enough to endure hard wear and last for generations. Hand forged out of 1050 high carbon steel with a hard spring temper, it sports a narrow, 30" slightly curved blade that widens out toward the tip to maximize the effect of slashing blows. To defend you against much larger weapons, it also features an extra thick spine with a unique pipe like cross section running the full length of the blade and terminating a reinforced point. Light enough to be fenced from the fingers and wrist like a small sword; it can outmaneuver heavier blades, remaining constantly ready to deliver a telling blow or lightning quick thrust.
