Mortuary Hilt Sword

SH2004
Mortuary Hilt Sword

Replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, our Mortuary Hilt Sword is a classic example of a cavalry or dragoon officer’s sword of the 17th century English Civil War period. Deriving its name from the style of sword which memorialized King Charles I, who was executed in 1649, The Mortuary Hilt Sword’s steel basket is decorated with scrolled foliage while an engraved head of Charles I appears on the pommel. The lozenge-section double-edged blade is partially fullered and bears the swordmaker’s mark “1414”, the derivation of which has been lost in time. The leather handle wrap terminates in silver wire “Turks Head” knots. The sword, like the original, is beautifully balanced. The hilt of this version is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, with a high-carbon steel blade.The grip of the mortuary-hilt is leather-covered, as is the scabbard. See Sh2004N for the antique-finished version of this sword.

Made by Hanwei.
