Description

This Practical Hand-and-a-Half Sword (SH2034) is replicated from what is thought to be the sword of Albrecht II of Austria. The sword features an elegant design with a flattened diamond-section blade and cruciform hilt the original dates from the beginning of the 15th century. It also features a hand-and-a-half grip. The weight of the weapon is 3lbs. and thus is easy and not tiring to handle . perfect for a long day in the field.

Our Practical broadswords (SH2106 SH2046 SH2047) are designed based on authentically styled swords in our collection. However . these swords are specifically designed to meet the needs of reenactment and stage combat. These weapons have proven to be popular and affordable while retaining authentic hilt styling with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. These pieces can withstand rugged use but retain their high level of safety required by reenactment societies. 1065 high-carbon steel hardened to 50HRC is used for the blades. This restricts edge-notching to sufficient levels and still provides resilience and protection against brittleness. The blades have been fullered in order to have balance and good handling characteristics. The blades display a 1/16" wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are substantial with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. In order to eliminate any possibility of inadvertent disassembly and provide traditional means of tightening a loose hilt . the tang is riveted over the pommel. Leather covers the hardwood grips. The scabbards are fabricated in glass-filled resin to result in fantastic impact resistance . to eliminate swelling . and to reduce blade corrosion. Adjustable belt rings are now featured on the scabbard in order to allow vertical or horizontal carry. Although there is an attractive wood-grain finish . re-enactors can decorate at they wish.
