Be the first to review this product

Mini replica of a hand-and-a-half sword with 'writhen' hilt. This is based upon a knightly sword of a rare type, with its gilt-bronze pommel and cross-guard formed to look like three rods twisted together. The wooden grip is carved to resemble a writhen (twisted) stave and it also bears a gilt-bronze collar at its centre.

German, about 1480.
