Reconstruction of a sword from southern Germany, circa 1520
In working on this sword, we based on 2 surviving swords. These swords date back one year and are created in the same geographical area. Outwardly, they are similar.
We took the blade from the sword with the following description:
A sword from southern Germany, circa 1520. A blade with a double-edged blade with half lengths on both sides, brass inlay and a stylized wolf pattern on one side of the blade. The top and guard are twisted in a spiral. Wooden handle wrapped in cord and leather (slightly cracked). Length: 120 cm.
We took the hilt set from the sword with the following description:
Sword from Southern Germany, circa 1520. Thin, double-edged diamond-shaped blade. There are two small, serrated blacksmith marks on one side of the blade. The straight guard is twisted in a spiral with corrugated tips. The pear-shaped corrugated top is twisted in a spiral. The handle is covered with leather on top of the cord. Length: 118.5 cm.
The result is a solid one and a half sword with an interesting set of hilt.
