From 1300 onwards the shape and strength of the sword changed rapidly because the growing use of armour made a shield unnecessary. The grip and blade became longer so that they could also be used two-handed now that the shield was no longer used.
This sword has a length of 154 cm with a blade of 109 cm and a cross-guard of 36 cm. It weighs about 3,8 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
