The magnificent Schiavona style sword was quite popular throughout Europe, however, it was the favorite weapon of choice for Venetian mercenaries. Our version, hand forged in high carbon steel, is a true work of art. The guard and scabbard fittings have been darkened to a battle finish. Soft, rich black leather wraps the handle and an antique brass pommel finishes off the grip. However, it is the 26 intricate, antique brass florets adorning the half basket hilt guard that truly enhance this sword. A floral engraving on the throat and tip of the black leather scabbard are beautiful finishing touches.

"This is an amazing sword. The brass flourettes and beautiful pommel, the entrancement that a basket hilt brings, and even the subtly satisfying details such as the engravery on the scabbard... combined with a greatly balanced sword with comfortable grip and convenient hand protection, make this my favorite sword in my current collection of around 15-20 swords or so. The Schiavona is my favorite type of sword, and I was really happy to see Windlass release yet another beautiful Schiavona. I do not have the one that is now discontinued, but I'd assume that this sword is an all around improvement. I love it and would love to see more (perhaps more styles) of Schiavonas from Windlass, Hanwei, Deepeeka, Cold Steel, and other great companies such as these. :)" - Ann (5/5)
