This sword is a replica of number A477 from the famed Wallace Collection. Like many German swords it is primarily a cutting sword, with a wide blade that has a flattened oval cross section that gives very little resistance in a cutting blow. It is also a perfect example of a true hand-and-half or bastard sword. The proportions of the sword are that of a one handed sword, but with a slightly longer grip and a pommel shape that will allow two hands to be used by gripping both. The grip is wood covered in cord and leather. The long quillion has a decorative finial on the end and the side rings provide good hand protection. Antiqued steel parts to match the original. Well tempered high carbon steel blade by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Scabbard with antiqued parts included.
