In 1414, the Lusignan kingdom of Cyprus signed a peace treaty with the Mameluke kingdom of Egypt. In honor of the treaty, the King of Cyprus sent several large gifts comprised at least partially of swords to the Mammeluke sultan. The majority of these weapons were inscribed in Naskhi script and deposited in the Arsenal of Alexandria. Actually, weapons given to the Mammeluke sultans or plundered by them during campaigns w ere deposited in the Arsenal of Alexandria as early as 1367. The large collection of European swords in the Arsenal has given the modern researcher much material for study.

One of the most famous swords from Alexandria resides in the The Royal Armouries, Leeds. This sword is a representative of Type XIX swords according to Oakeshott's Typology. The defining characteristics of Type XIX swords are the parallel edges of the blade, hexagonal blade cross-section, and short ricasso.

This perfect, hand-made reconstruction of The Royal Armouries Sword has a 87 cm long, oil-tempered spring-steel blade with full tang riveted at the pommel. The edges are not sharpened. Guard and pommel are hand-forged from steel and the grip is steel wire wrapped.

This accurate replica of a real late medieval museum piece is very light and well balanced. It comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard with steel fittings.
