Description

Hans Talhoffer was a fencing-master in southern Germany in the 15th century. He is the author several Fechtbcher illustrated treatises describing methods of fighting with various weapons including unarmed combat (grappling) dagger long sword pole weapons and mounted combat. He is a contemporary of fencing-master Paulus Kal (whose manuscript may contain hints of professional rivalry between the two). Talhoffer taught within the tradition of Johannes Liechtenauer. Talhoffer's Fechtbuch (ca 1467) is universally acknowledged as one of the great texts of the Medieval German Masters. Oakeshott describes the Type XV as a strongly tapering acutely pointed blade of flattened diamond cross-section. The sub-type XVa is often longer and slimmer than the Type V but with the primary difference being the longer grip. This type of sword was referred to as an eptarde or "bastard sword." Specifications TBA This sword is offered in a limited edition of 1000 swords worldwide.
