The spatha, the sword that was developed in the Iron Age, was the most frequently used sword in Western Europe until the Middle Ages. Combined with a shield this sword was deadly. The point of the sword was rounded, so not suitable for stabbing, but because of the two sharp edges the sword could be very well used. Only from the 11th century onwards the medieval swords developed a cross-guard and in the period of the crusades the design remained nearly the same: a cross shape with a slim blade and different shaped pommels.
This sword has a length of 91 cm with a blade of 73 cm and a cross-guard of 19 cm. It weighs about 1,3 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 XI.
