The River Witham Sword was dredged from the River Witham near the town of Lincoln during work carried out in 1788. The sword may be a remnant of the Battle of Lincoln in 1141 but it is more likely that it was made between 1250-1300 CE. The inscription on the blade reads: +NDXOXCHMDRCHDXORVI+.Paul Chen swords are crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago except now the blades are forged from high-carbon spring steel. The blade finish is far from being polished agian more closley replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. Except as noted the grips are leather covered hardwood. Fittings are either steel or solid brass. These swords will appeal to the re-enactor who wants a sword with the same appearance as the originals. Made by Hanwei.
