This Schiavona appears to be based on an original Italian example dated to c.1730 - The unsharpened blade is forged from 1065 high carbon steel. The guard and complex basket are crafted from steel with an antiqued finish and it is riveted with numerous antiqued brass rosettes. The characteristic ‘’cat’s head’ pommel is antiqued brass and the wooden grip is bound in black leather.

Included with the sword is a leather scabbard with an antique-finished chape and locket which are embellished with engraving. A separate hanging frog of leather with belt loops is included.

The unique Schiavona swords had their origin as sturdy blades of war used by Dalmatian mercenaries who often were in the employ of the Venetian Republic. Over time the hilts for their swords became more complex and protective, eventually evolving into this late style Schiavona sword which gives ample protection for the sword hand, whilst retaining a broad sword blade well suited for the rigors of the battlefield.
