The late medieval original of this replica is still in a very good condition and can be seen in the Musée de Cluny le monde médiéval, the French National Museum of Medieval Art in Paris. It was made in the late 15th century and most probably originates from a south German sword smithy.
This reconstruction of this late medieval sword is hand forged. The guard and the flat pommel are made of iron. The spring steel blade is forged up to the hilt and screwed with the pommel. The wooden gip, as well as the crosspoint are leather covered. The blade has got a diamond cross section. The edges of the blades are not sharpened.
The sword comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard.
