In the late Middle Ages, the making of a sword was already divided among several work processes. The blade comes from a well-known blade forge in Passau in southern Germany. In Italy, this was mounted with the typical handle parts of the fashion of the time.
Typologically, this sword can be classified as Oakeshott Type XVIIIa or possibly Type XVIa.
This reconstruction, suitable for show combat, is purely handmade. The octagonal pommel as well as the slightly forward curved quillons, are made of heat treated forgeable cast iron. The hardened spring steel blade goes through to the pommel and is screwed to it. The handle section is wrapped in leather. One third of the blade length measures the pronounced gouge, due to which the sword has a special elasticity and lightness. The tip and the cutting edges of the blade are blunt and rounded. Included is a beautiful wooden scabbard covered with leather.
