he Practical Mortuary Hilt and Practical Basket-Hilt swords are built for the re-enactor. The baskets are identical to the edged versions, but the blades are unsharpened, with 1/16 safety edges and rounded tips, complying with the combat rules of many re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted in 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which reduces edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. The scabbards are finished in matte black, ready for owner customization if desired.
