Replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria, the Hand-and-a-Half Sword represents the pinnacle of beauty and balance in medieval swords. Classically simple in design with a flattened diamond-section blade and cruciform hilt, the original dates from the early part of the 15th century. The “Lion Rampant” emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau “Running Wolf” guild mark and a marigold maker’s mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over a cord wrap.

"Very nice sword. Beautifull lines and great balance for a large sword. The only flaw was some minor hammer marks on the pommel at the tang." - Eric (4/5)
Reliks Response - This can be expected on hand forged blades. It should be seen as individual character rather than a flaw :)
"Excellent length and balance, I love how it tapers to a fine point making it a truly transitional hand and half sword that is good for both the cut and (especially with the albrect) the thrust. No one who buys this sword will be disappointed with it's quality, it's beautiful, handles well and feels good as a single hand but downright speedy if you use both hands." - Logan (5/5)
