Carved Weaving Batten Sword
The weaving sword, also known as a weaving batten were used for beating the weft or woof (the transverse threads) when weaving on upright looms. They are now used with many different types of hand looms and band looms as well as with rigid heddle loom to aid in pick up patterns.
The Handywoman carved sword is made from solid wood and has been sanded thin on the end and sword edges to aid the beating and pick up of threads. The flat edged is 11" and the tapered pointed is 10.5" long.
