This sword meets the standard ideas of the townsfolk about the blade weapons of martial Christian orders. These performances are based on feature films and literature. Despite the fact that it seems authentic to an inexperienced look, it is still not possible to attribute it to historical ones.
Made to order.
This weapon has more features from the late XVth century than from the early XIVth. The surviving specimens indicate later dates. But the formation of the archetype occurred precisely in the early XIV century. The type is formed by the shape of the blade and the dales on it. Most of the swords of this type are large one and a half swords.
By making this type, we were placed within the strict framework of the customer’s wishes, therefore it was not possible to reconstruct a strictly defined sword. So the apple was taken from the sword number 1 (a private collection, dated from the early XIV century), the guard from the sword number 2 (Kunsthistiriches museum, Vienna, circa 1440-50), and the blade from the sword number 3 (The Burrell Collection, Glasgow, 1420-50).
