The Crecy Medieval War Full Tang Tempered Battle Ready Handmade Sharp Edge Sword For Sale
The Crecy was one of the most decisive
battles of the 100 Years War. After the battle of Sluys, Edward III landed in
Normandy in July 1346 with about 10,000 men. The French pursued. Edward III
decided to halt near Crecy in Normandy and to prepare for battle the next day.
However, the French vanguard made contact and started to attack without the benefit
of a plan. The French made as many as 15 attacks and the English checked each
one in turn, primarily thanks to the English long bowmen. In the end, the
French were decimated and the English had a decisive victory. The Crecy is one
type of sword that would have seen service on both sides during the 100 Years
War. Oakeshott describes the Type XVIa as having a long, tapering blade, broad
at the hilt, with a sharp, often reinforced, point. The Crecy is a fine example
of a later period epee de guerre, or war sword, a refinement of the earlier
XIIa in response to changes in the armor of the period.
