These may be valuable additions to this thread:


They are allegedly from Southern Germany (possibly Austria) around 1590. I do not know where the "neater" right sword in the comparison photo is, and it could be an antiqued replica (as Nathan pointed out in a discussion on Facebook that it looks a bit too identical to a Patrick Bárta replica). The other sword of that style is allegedly in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, sadly not on display.

All rights to these images go to their respective creators. Sadly I do not know who took them.

Gothic Hand-and-a-half Sword, German or Swiss, circa 1490-1500

This sword was made for use against armor on foot or horseback. Its uniformly tapering stout diamond section blade is most suitable for thrusting and capable of penetrating all but the thickest armor. The throat area between the breastplate and helmet was particularly vulnerable as the requirement for articulation necessitated thinner plates. The simple straight cross-guard evolved directly from the classic medieval cruciform sword. The elongated hock bottle grip is a rare original, made to accommodate both hands comfortably for maximum effect. The pommel is sized to balance the blade at its distance and the foot continues the sweep of the grip completing the rest for the left hand. This sword was made for a man at arms prepared to fight to the death in every encounter. The increased leverage of a two handed attack is at the price of a left hand defense. Each attacking blow must be met with the sword and a productive strike is possible only when the opponent fails to do so. The very stuff that medieval legends are made of!

Blade length: 35.5" (90 cm)

Gothic Hand-and-a-half Sword, German or Swiss, circa 1490-1500

This fine sword was made for combat between two mounted fully armored knights. The long blade can deliver effective blows as the distance between two excited horses fluctuates as well as deal with an attack from the ground. It is made for breaching armor by thrusting or hacking and the edge is sharp enough to cut or pry loose a leather fastener. The articulation of armor necessitates gaps through which fatal thrusts could be made. Incapacitating a knight with a limb wound could provide the opportunity for a thrust to the throat or chest through the arm opening. Aside from unseating the rider, the first objective was to breach his armor. This is the tool for that task. It is beautifully made and reflects the latest technology with double ring guards and a semi basket opposite.

Blade length: 41.25" (104.8 cm)
