How historically accurate are your medieval swords?

All of our medieval swords are considered to be "battle ready" and would have been readily adopted and put to good use by a medieval knight, footman or mercenary, however as most are only loosely based on actual historical originals found in museums, it would be more accurate to say our medieval swords are "historically plausible" than historically accurate.

The vast majority are basically hybrids of various historical swords, taking a component from one historical sword here, a blade type there and mixing and matching to create a new design. But none are so far out as to warrant a second look if it was somehow possible to transport them back in a time machine - but on closer inspection they may raise a few eyebrows.

That said, most are actually stronger and even more functional than the historical originals ever were thanks to the purity and quality of modern steel and tempering techniques.
