German Longsword

Be the first to review this product

We call this elegant edged weapon a "German Longsword," but this type of blade was widely used in Europe during the Late Middle Ages. Its slender shape, acute point and lack of fuller predetermine this sword for use as a thrusting weapon against knightly plate armor. Wielding this blade with two hands greatly increased the probability of scoring a hit in the enemy's weak spot. Our German long sword features a hilt with a striking design: the meander incised in the crossguard is repeated in the pear-shaped pommel. The wooden grip is wrapped in smooth, brown leather for increased control and comfort.

Our German Longsword comes with a brown leather scabbard including a mount and chape.

Product Description

Details

Germany was known as a sword-making centre and German swords saw service all across Europe. It was not unusual for a French or English knight or man-at-arms to own a German sword. Circa 1400, this hand-and-a-half design boasts carved steel furniture with a wood grip covered in leather married to a long, high-carbon, well-tempered blade that can be used with one or two hands with ease.
