German Hunting Sabre
Although the European Hunting Swords of this age were generally fitted with 12" to 24" long blades, the Germans seemed to have a preference for big blades. In Medieval times there was rarely any difference between swords used for war or the hunt and this later period full length sword carries out that tradition. Boar and large deer hunting was a passion of the rich for centuries, but by the 1600's hunting was open to most classes, and this attractive sword would do to dispatch large prey as well as defend one from brigands. This well-balanced, well-tempered sword comes with a scabbard and will make a worthy addition to any collection.
