    Circa 1600

    There are several of these swords in different private and public collections, one in the Wallace Collection and several at the Bavarian National Museum. It's a  perfect example of a German military cut-and-thrust swept hilt carried by the Munich Town Guard. The slightly shorter blade and stout hilt were perfect for breaking up a street fight or tavern brawl, as the town guard was often employed to do, and was clearly intended for practical use. One of the most practical and prolific swords we have ever offered.  Has a well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel blade.  The pommel and guard are steel and the grip is wood wrapped in twisted steel wire for a very positive hold. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, includes scabbard. Matching dagger available.
    • Overall: 43-1/4"
    • Blade: 34" long, 2-1/4" wide, 3/16" thick
    • Wt: 3 lbs
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select below left).

    A beautiful and well balanced piece. This sword is stunning to see and wield. Very tight construction with no rattles and no whippy-ness. I ordered mine unsharpened for safety reasons but the point is still very fine and the edges are crisp. A treasure!

    Just received this for re-enactment and really love it. The balance is incredible, and it's surprisingly light. The matching dagger is the perfect companion piece. This is not my 1st purchase from Museum Replicas, and it's far from my last.
