A beautiful sword from Windlass Steelcrafts based on historical swords from the Italian Renaissance. The half basket hilt schiavona was very popular among the Venetian mercenaries. Because of their high quality, they were hired by other Italian city-states. A basket hilt sword has a basket-shaped hilt that protects the hand and is also called broadsword. It emerged in the 16th century and even remained in use until the Napoleonic era. This schiavona has a beautiful black basket decorated with florets, they have an antique finish just like the floret that decorates the pommel. The grip is made of black leather. This sword is delivered including a scabbard with patinated fittings with Renaissance decorations. The patinated finish on the scabbard and the brass antique fittings on the basket make it look like an old sword. The semi-sharp blade is forged from tempered 1065 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. A great ornamental sword for the wall, also beautiful for Renaissance reenactment and Cosplay of series like The Borgias and The Medici: Masters of Florence. When you blunten the blade, it is a great battle ready sword for sword fighting and an excellent training sword for Historical European Martial Arts.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.

Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

The blade of this sword can be blunted (2,5-3 mm) at a surcharge.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
