Robin Hood Decorator Medieval ReplicaThis is the commemorative sword of Robin of Loxley, much better known to us through English folklore as Robin Hood. Famed for his band of "merry men" that would steal from the rich and give to the poor, this vigilante created quite a legacy during the time of the Crusades for his personal battles against injustice and tyranny.

Even though there is no genuine "Robin Hood Sword," historically speaking, the sword is quite an accurate representation of English swords during the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The straight blade is long and narrow, and the engraved handle features a lengthy cross-guard at the base of the blade.

The sword is meant for decorative purposes only. It's not sharpened or battle-ready. But the blunted edges will make it safer to carry and wield, especially for a novice enthusiast.

The blade is made from polished stainless steel and measures 33 inches. Its lengthy straight edge gives this sword an overall length of 40.5 inches and weight of 2.5 pounds.

Its handle is nothing short of commemorative. The weighty, rounded pommel displays a square Crusader cross, and the guard features a leaf-like pattern designed to bring Sherwood Forest to mind. Furthermore, the crest of the Earl of Loxley is embossed below the handguard, above which is etched the name Robin Hood.

This sword is also very affordable as far as medieval replica weapons are concerned. Whether you're in the market for a simple medieval sword to hang over your fireplace, or a famed replica to wield at the next SCA or Renaissance Faire, this one will make quite a statement.
