  • Model: HW0101044


It is likely that the blade of the original sword was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined. The Basket-Hilt Backsword (SH2003SH2003N - antiqued) dates from about 1760 and has an unusual basket with twin engraved"horned beastie"plaques and a blade with twin fullers running most of its length. Again the original blade is German in origin but the blade and hilt are contemporary. The SH2003 and SH2003N have wire-wrapped ray skin handles and cloth-covered leather basket liners.

Customer Testimonials

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
