Our 6″ Cruciform Guard is made from 1/4″ hardened 5160 carbon steel; it’s the same steel that we use for our blades! This guard is a simple, slightly contoured bar with a total tip-to-tip length of 6″. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard, we do offer the 3 finishes: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
We designed this guard to be a multipurpose straight cruciform guard that will last forever, no matter what it comes up against.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Broad Sword Blade, Type XV Blade, Type XVa Blade, Feder blade, Spatha blade and our Messer Blade.
