Information for Hand-and-a-Half Sword:

our Hand-and-a-Half Sword is replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria and 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. The Hand-and-a-Half is now available in an antique patina finish to resemble an old world blade. 

See model SH2106 for the “Practical” version of the Hand-and-a-Half sword.
