Description

~ Circa 1270-1300 German Knight Sword ~

The sword comes from the Hamilton White collection. It is an Oakeshott Type VII with a broad, flat and evenly tapering blade.

Oakeshott's criteria for this type (in order to differentiate from other, similar, types) are: 1) a noticeable taper and an acute point, and that the grip should be short (never of hand-and-a-half length), and 2) that the fuller should not extend further than 2/3's of the length of the blade.

The sword is fitted with a bronze pommel and it was found in Koln, Germany.

~ Dimensions ~

The blade length is 31.88 inches (81 cm) and its overall length is 38.58 inches (98 cm).

It weighs 1.11 Kg.

~ Condition ~

The sword is in good condition for its age with the expected surface rust. Please refer to the pictures.

The pommel is excellent due to its bronze construction.

~ Postage ~

UK postage is £25, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
