Squire Line Albion Mark™
The Late 15th Century Bastard Sword
(Oakeshott Type XVa)

This is a short and handy hand and a half sword with a very stiff blade, primarily for thrusting, but pretty decent for cutting as well. When you handle these swords they are very ready in your hand.

One of the quickest types there is, as it follows your intentions at quicksilver like speed. Because of the very narrow point the spine can be made quite thick without the blade becoming cumbersome. This makes for superior stiffness and a very effective thrust
