Sword CareExample content image using the class .alignright

Thank you for your patronage, we believe your Lancaster Armoury sword represents exceedingly good value and we hope you enjoy using it. Your sword has been made to the same specifications as my own sword "Chivalry", and is designed for full contact combat. The steel is an old formula, commonly used as road hammer drill bits, the Quillon & Pommel are Bronze and the simple resin soaked leather grip contains two filets to lock the Quillon onto taper shoulders.

 

CARE OF YOUR SWORD

Pointers to enhance the appearance and aid the life-span of your sword:

Note: Your sword is made from a Chrome Nickel Molybdenum steel, NOT spring or carbon steel which may become brittle  with use. It is tempered to retain it's elasticity and allow the impact of your opponents weapon to "work harden" the cutting edges without affecting the main body of the sword blade. You will notice the cutting edges develop small exposed burrs and a bluing at the points of impact  (with use, they will become much less pronounced).  These are quite normal and should be removed at the battle site with a "fine" file or at home with a "DIY" drum sander on an electric drill, using a fine grit paper. This action is essential to disperse stress/fault-line focal points (never hammer the burrs flat, because they will break away later).  Whenever possible, try to maintain a cutting edge not less than 2.5 mm or more than 3 mm on the blade.


UNDER NO CURCUMSTANCE SHOULD ANY `L.A.' BLADE EVER BE SHARPENED,
you buy our products on this understanding.

 

The blade of your sword may still show some slight signs of where it was ground (these can be removed with fine emery cloth and oil) also some "Carbide forging hammer marks" (try not to remove these, they de- stress the blade).

MAY YOUR SWORD ARM NEVER TIRE AND YOUR GOBLET BE EVER FULL
