This is a recreation of a longsword from the late medieval period. Ewart Oakeshott designated this sword as a Type XVIIIa in his well-known typlogy of European swords. This sword features a well defined hollow-ground blade that is suitable for the cut as well as the thrust. This type was widely used in the German schools of medieval swordsmanship, as taught by Hans Talhoffer.
