Paul Chen’s Tinker Early Medieval Swords are single-hand Oakeshott Type XII pieces, with sharp and blunt versions with identical handling characteristics. The sharp sword is fullered for about two thirds of its length, with a flattened diamond section out towards the tip. The cruciform hilt is attractive and functional. See Hanwei’s models SH2405 for the Tinker Blunt Early Medieval Sword and SH2406 for the Sharp replacement blade.
