Venetian Cinquedea with scabbard
The Cinqueda,- Cinguedea or also titled as Bulls Tongue, is a blank weapon with extremely wide blade, which can be assigned to the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance period. The length of the blade varies between 30 and 60 cm. This weapon originated in northern Italy in the 15th and 16th centuries and was used especially by civilians of the wealthy upper class. The name, five fingers, is probably derived from the extraordinarily wide blade, which could be approximately one hand, so five fingers wide.
The original of this replica is most likely from Venice. The recessed handle scales are made of bone, which are attached with very decorative brass rivets. The blade has a pronounced central bead. The included leather-covered wooden scabbard features beautiful brass mouth and guard plates.
