I am selling a replica of this European medieval sword.
It was developed in the 14th century and used from the early 1500's until the invention of firearms made them obsolete.
After that until today they are still being used for ceremonial purposes, collectors and LARP, because original pieces are almost unobtainable and very expensive.
Our reproduction is mainly for decoration and role play, it has an 75 cms./29.5" long steel blade, 26 cms/10" cms. long quillons (cross guards), and a stitched black leather grip bound with twisted steel wire .
Its sheath is made from sturdy black leather and can be attached easily to any belt (see right photo).
These swords and daggers have penned pommels (the tang runs through the pommel and is pounded flat).
For use on stage, these swords also have blunt edges and a rounded tip.
Overall length of this sword is 104 cms/41".
Weight (including sheath) : 2.7 kgs (approx. 6.5 lbs.).
