    Circa 1600

    There are several of these swords in different private and public collections, one in the Wallace Collection and several at the Bavarian National Museum. It's a  perfect example of a German military cut-and-thrust swept hilt carried by the Munich Town Guard. The slightly shorter blade and stout hilt were perfect for breaking up a street fight or tavern brawl, as the town guard was often employed to do, and was clearly intended for practical use. One of the most practical and prolific swords we have ever offered.  Has a well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel blade.  The pommel and guard are steel and the grip is wood wrapped in twisted steel wire for a very positive hold. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, includes scabbard.
    • Overall: 43-1/4"
    • Blade: 34" long, 2-1/4" wide, 3/16" thick
    • Wt: 3 lbs
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select below left).

    This is my second Windlass Steelcrafts sword (Schiavona was my first). This sword is solidly built, it's attractive, and the handling is nice. The wire wrap is very comfortable in bare hands. I would recommend it for anyone.

    When I first saw this sword I thought that this was a good looking one. After receiving it, it was much better than the pictures made it out to be. Being well made, it is now one of my favorite swords! If this is the type of sword that you are looking for, I would recommend buying it.
