Our Mortuary Guard is made from 12 ga 4130 carbon steel. This guard features an elegant basket of curled bars that gives complete coverage to the hand. 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 an exact replica of English mortuary basket hilts that were especially popular during the English Civil War c.1600 to 1685.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Back Sword Blade, Standard Long Sword Blade, Type XV Blade and Type XI Blade.
