Limited Edition Medieval Italian Sword (Oakeshott Type XIX) The Condottiere was a leader of mercenary soldiers in Italy in the 14th and 15th cent. a period when wars between the city-states of Italy were almost incessant. The condottieri hired and paid the bands who fought under them. They dealt directly with the cities or states that requested their services and were responsible solely to them. They fought for the highest bidder passing easily from one lord to another -- this game proved dangerous and even fatal to more than one. Some condottieri had small states of their own either inherited or acquired. The most famous were the Attendolos (founders of the Sforza family) Colleoni Carmagnola and Sir John de Hawkwood. This sword is inspired by the famous"Alexandria"Type XIX sword though our version is a stouter and larger combat version of the Type XIX single-hand sword. Oakeshott describes the Type XIX as a single-handed sword with a broad flat blade that has clearly chamfered edges that run nearly parallel a fuller that runs through the upper third and a flat ricasso section at the base of the blade. The blade is of hexagonal cross-section A Limited Edition Hand Crafted Collectible Sword This sword is offered in a limited edition of only 500 collectible swords worldwide.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
