The Medieval Knight sword, or type XIV, is the quintessential sword of the medieval period. Described in Oakeshott’s typology as being relatively short, with a strong taper and sharply pointed (E. Oakeshott: “The Sword in the Age of Chivalry” p.51 ) the Medieval Knight sword is a light and well balanced weapon which facilitated a fast and agile fighting style.
