OVERVIEW

Closeout, Was $235, Now Only $149!
SOLD OUT!
Not all of the “double pay” soldiers carried the large two hander with the parrying hooks on the blade. Some opted for smaller, quicker two-handers. Most all of the officers carried this sword, and the great Landsknecht Captain, George Frundsberg, is known to have carried one on his last campaign (at the tender age of 82). Larger than the standard hand-and-a-half sword, and intended for two hands. In the wild melee after the initial clash of the pikes, there was little room for any fancy sword work, just brutal chopping, and this sword was quite good for that! Strong, wide blades were capable of denting and crushing the toughest armor. This was the period of the infantry, when the armored knight was being replaced, and the firearm had not yet shown its fearsome abilities. The foot soldier, wearing armor, but not fully encased in steel, was vulnerable to the sword and axe. High carbon steel. Wood grip are covered with leather. Steel pommel and crossguard. Includes scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
  • Overall: 50"
