Generation 2 And Legacy Arms Swords
Generation 2 is now known as Legacy Arms makes battle-ready swords. Each sword is meticulously researched, designed, and reviewed for historical accuracy. All their swords are made of 3/16 Inches high carbon spring steel with a full hefty tang, making them fully functional. The pommels and cross guards of the Generation 2 swords are made from polished solid steel or brass. The Generation 2 swords and knives are made from virgin 5160 or 1060 carbon steel. The tangs are a continuation of the blade that runs completely through the handle making them a full tang. For many years sword manufacturers have been producing swords "loosely" based on historical swords. Generation 2 has made a concerted effort to change that mentality and has become the forerunner in re-creating swords that actually existed in the past. The new Legacy Arms are replicas of actual museum pieces with the same characteristics; strong tangs and sharp hand forged tempered blades. Now all of the Generation 2/Legacy Arms swords have penned pommels (the tang runs through the pommel and is pounded into a rounded peen to hold the hilt in place). Our Legacy Arms/Generation 2 swords are covered under a one year limited warranty against breaking under intended sword use (Practice cutting against reasonable objects and blade on blade contact). A sword no matter how well it is made will receive nicks in the edge if hit edge to edge with another sword.
