European Cut-and-Thrust

The Rhinelander Bastard sword, typical of late 15th century central European cut-and-thrust swords, is a handsome piece that will be appreciated by both collectors and cutting enthusiasts. The ring-guard hilt and scent-stopper pommel balance a riveted-tang #fullered blade, forged in 5160 high-carbon steel and hardened to 54HRc for an optimal combination of edge-holding and resilience. A leather-wrapped scabbard is included.

Historical Significance

The design of these swords reflects the evolving nature of combat during the 15th century, a time when plate armor was becoming more prevalent. The ability to thrust effectively was particularly important for penetrating gaps in armor, while the cutting edge remained useful against less armored foes.
