This beautiful backsword distinguishes itself with a wood grip covered with real black rayskin for extremely positive hand contact. Comprised of gracefully shaped rings for the front and bars on the back and completed with long curved quillions, the steel guard offers excellent hand protection. With the metal parts of the furniture blackened to a deep luster, this is a seriously handsome weapon. Developed to excel as a heavy mounted horseman’s weapon capable of terrible cuts to a foe mounted or on foot. The long single edged blade was extremely strong and stiffer than a double edged blade. This is an important sword development and a must for your collection. Well-tempered high carbon steel blade. Comes with a matching scabbard. Can be seen in the book L’Armeria Reale Di torino. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®, this sword can be sharpened.
