Sword of the Thirty Years War
Brutally fought from 1618-1648, the destructive Thirty Years War included most of the countries of Europe at one point or another. Although fought on many fronts, its strongest action was seen in what is now Germany. This wickedly fast sword dating from the period would have seen action on the battle field and on the side of nobles as a sign of wealth and importance. Features a blackened, all metal, intricate swept hilt with a wood grip covered in genuine ray skin. Hand forged high carbon steel and tempered to a tough spring. Leather scabbard has decorative, metal throat and tip blackened to match the hilt. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
