#187 Fechtbuch Sword
A replica of the practice swords used by schools of combat in the medieval period, such as the German Marxbrüder. The design was used very widely and is often seen in the illustrations depicting fighting techniques in the fechtbuchs (fight manuals) of the period. This sword is based on these illustrations and some of the few surviving examples of this type of sword. The hilt furniture is steel, the grip being hardwood covered in leather. A smooth brushed steel finish is used on this piece to help control the cost and keep it affordable. The blade is made of 6150 steel and has a steady taper from hilt to tip.

Original: Date 1450-1550, German, as illustrated by several artists and a few examples that survive today such as in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
