Writhen Hilt Sword Writhen Hilt Sword Writhen Hilt Sword Writhen Hilt Sword Writhen Hilt Sword
Hand-and-a-half sword with 'writhen' hilt. This knightly sword is of a rare type, with its gilt-bronze pommel and cross-guard formed to look like three rods twisted together. The wooden grip is carved to resemble a writhen (twisted) stave and it also bears a gilt-bronze collar at its centre.

Drawing upon the outstanding quality and range of the Royal Armouries collections, we are proud to present this range of fine quality replicas. At each stage of the process, from the initial selection to the last details of the prototypes, the Museum’s experts on armour and edged weapons have been personally involved. These replicas are impressive in both their look and feel, accurately capturing the dimensions, materials and processes of the originals with tremendous attention to detail. The Royal Armouries is delighted that enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy these objects ‘at first hand’.
