7 people like this. Do you like this? yes no
The elaborate steel schiavona hilt is of basket form and is composed of many bars emanating from the cross-guard and attaching at the knuckle-guard. Each bar is then further connected with chevron-shaped pieces. Complex patterns of flattened bars welded together complete the hilt and are complimented by a substantial thumb-ring on the basket's inside.

The steel "cat's head" pommel has a raised central boss with ten raised circular shapes surrounding. The grip is wound with thick cord and is covered with very dark brown leather. The wide blade has a fuller extending nearly half its length.

See our hands-on review for more information on this sword.
