German 15th C Long Sword

XVIIIa_featured

This sword is inspired by an original (inventory number KZ 6033) kept in the Landesmuseum in Zürich, dated to around AD 1480.
The blade is a long and light and balanced to be a quick and nimble weapon with the forward pivot point close to the point, as is common for swords of this type.
