14th century Longsword based on original sword.

This sword, is inspired by an example which has been seen in several books over the years, first in Ewart Oakeshott's 1991 'Records of the Medieval Sword', and more recently, in the 2015 catalogue of the Deutsches Klingenmuseum's 'Das Schwert: Gestalt und Gedanke' exhibition, where it was loaned from a private collection in the Netherlands.

A textbook example of double-fullered type XIII swords, this 123cm long sword has a hexagonal cross-section with double fuller, gently transitioning to a lenticular cross section in the last third of the blade. While the original sword has been fitted with a modern grip sometime in the last 30 years, this reproduction has been hilted with a leather grip more accurate to during its working lifespan.

Measurements:
total length 1230mm
bladse length 973mm
blade width 49mm
blade thickness at the base 6mm to 2,5mm close to the tip
grip 190mm
crossguard 210mm
pommel 53x48x37mm
balance ca. 135mm
weight ca. 1750g
edges sharp

Asking 1300 EUR
Shipping all around the world included.

I love this one Maciej! The lines look very overall, though the guard really draws my eye.

This is exactly the kind of sword I would envision being wielded by a Teutonic knight! This sword looks both elegant and powerful.
