Description

The blade on this sword is a larger scale version of a long and slender single hand sword that is kept at the Royal armouries in Leeds. This is classified as a XXa by Oakeshott as a subtype to the family of Type XX swords. These have more severe profile taper and more of an acute point than is otherwise he norm for the type XX swords in general. Both XXa swords presented by Oakeshott as examples of the type has fullered ricassos rather than a set up of double or triple fullers in a lenticular sectioned blade. It is not clear if this is a defining feature or just a coincidence. A ricasso like the one found on this blade with hollowground surfaces on both sides of the fuller presents rigidity and strength to the base of the blade while keeping total mass mass down. The hilt of this sword is inpired by a handsome war sword from the Landesmuseum in ZÃ
