Wilkinson Sword first published this booklet in the 1960's to explain to their customers the heritage of the sword they had just ordered and to appeal to the collector or enthusiast.
It describes the arme blanche from earliest times, covering the basic style of sword from flint and bronze to the flamboyant weapons of the Renaissance, the elegant Small or Town Sword and the immergence of the regulation Military patterns.
This overview of the history of swords is an invaluable source of information.
