No, this is not an Arming Guild sword. However, it is an arming sword made by Kvetun Armory for the I.33 treatises. It was designed to be used for sword and buckler work, however there is no reason why you can’t use it for sword and rotella, sword and shield, two swords or any kind of other wacky combination you can think of. Due to their simplicity and versatility, the arming swords were used quite often in various scenarios ranging from self defence to war. If you are unsure how the arming sword can be used, we suggest you check out some videos on the subject.
