National Museum Zurich, Switzerland
Battle-Ready (Practical Blunt), SK-B
This beautiful two-handed sword is a reproduction of a late medieval longsword dated around 1450-1460. The original was classified as a Type XVa according to Oakeshott's typology and is on display for people to admire at the National Museum in Zurich (Landesmuseum Zürich), Switzerland.
This replica features a hardened spring steel blade which was tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 49-51 HRC. The blade tapers to the point and has a diamond cross section. It is full-tanged and riveted to the pommel. The cross guard is forged out of steel and the leather-wrapped wooden grip is capped with a generously sized fishtail pommel. The sword's gorgeous scabbard is crafted from vegetable tanned, dyed leather and comes complete with a carrying belt with brass buckles.
The blade's blunt, 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make this long sword ideal for combat reenactment, stage fighting or sparring.

Our swords referred to as battle-ready or practical are designed to suit the needs of historical re-enactment / stage fighting and to practice swordplay. The extremely brutal impact of cutting edge against cutting edge (or any other hard object) cannot be considered an appropriate use of these swords and may eventually lead to the breaking of the blade. The warranty we offer in such a case only covers material defects (e.g. hairline cracks in the blade or processing faults). It does not apply to damages resulting from a destructive or inappropriate handling of these swords. Please also bear in mind that a practical sword is basically and essentially an item subject to wear and tear.
