Katzbalger by Steve Moffatt
Original: Late 16th century Germany

3 people like this. Do you like this? yes no
This sword was crafted to resemble a historic example of a katzbalger that has been updated after many years of service. The blade shape was made to appear as though it was cut down and re-shaped after breakage. A knuckle-bow was added to the design to give it a late 16th century facelift. An indentation on the blade near the hilt allows curling a finger over the cross-guard.

Wide double-edged blade with single fuller; twisted and carved S-shaped guard and knuckle-bow with rounded finials; flared and faceted hardwood grip with brass tacks; faceted pommel with decorative roping. Munitions finish throughout.
