Limited Edition Recreation Project

The Sherwood Sword



"A romantic image from my childhood - something I have always wanted to bring to life as an actual, functional sword. Lars has outdone himself with this one."
Howy of Albion

Designed by Lars Hansen, this sword evokes memories of a swashbuckling, romantic era - where men in Lincoln green drop from treetops on to unsuspecting travellers, and desperate duels are fought on winding castle stairways.

Lars painstakingly hand-carved originals for the hilt components in wax and cast them in steel. Lars hand finishes them with a slightly aged look.

The high carbon steel blade is hexagonal in cross-section and is hand heat-treated and hand-ground in the Albion Blade shop.

The sword is available in a Special Limited Edition, and is fully-functional as well as being a handsome display piece.
