The tall, pointed top of the Sugarloaf offered a much better glancing surface than the older flat-tops, allowing blows from a sword, mace, or axe to be harmlessly deflected.

It is made of hand-forged 18 gauge, low carbon, A-36 mild steel. This metallurgical composition provides excellent resilience, durability and will polish to high sheen.
