This sword is made after originals from approx. 1450. It is strikingly high developed and was used when the canon and the pike could not win the battle. In that case these luxurious fast swords could be used with a striking precision. This sword is very light weighted and it could stab rapidly through the weak points of a suit of armour.
This sword clearly shows the changing function of the sword: it had become a stabbing weapon instead of a hitting weapon, meant to pierce the weak spots of the enemy body of armour. This sword has a length of 106,5 cm with a blade of 85 cm and a cross-guard of 21,5 cm. It weighs about 1 kg. The blade has a Rockwell hardness of 44-48 HRC.
This sword is made by Jiri Krondak from Prague. During the last 20 years, this line of swords proved themselves on the re-enactment fields. They are continually perfectionised to a reliable and inexpensive type of re-enactment swords.This sword is an Oakeshott type XVIIIc.
