This type of sword was the demolition hammer on every 15th century battlefield. Contrary to his little brother, the XVa, this sword weighs approx. 2 kg and is not suitable for duels as depicted in Talhoffer and Lichtenhauer.
Instead every part of this weapon is made to break through armour. Because of its length and weight it can make a big impact, its grip can be used as a warhammer and the blade is just as pointy as the XVa so it can easily pierce through chain mail.
This hand-and-a-half sword has a length of 125 cm with a blade of 97 cm and a cross-guard of 25 cm. It weighs about 3 kg. The blade has a Rockwell hardness of 44-48 HRC.
