The Albion Next Generation Ritter Sword has the  distinct German flavour of a style that was popular in the first half of the 13th C. It has a long and handsome blade with a short point section, clearly dedicated to the cut, as was favored in areas under German influence. The fuller is rather narrow, which might classify it as a type XI according to Oakeshott´s typology, but this is one of those swords that fall a bit outside the norm in this typological system. The Ritter was inspired by an original in Museum für Deutsche Geschichte, Berlin and shares the same style of hilt. The pommel is of a type known as 'cocked hat' or Oakeshott type D. This is of deep and generous shape complemented nicely by a wide and slim cross of style 2 of round section. This has gently trumpeting ends and a slight swelling in the middle. The grip is of moderate length, making this a single hand sword despite its great size. Sword of this type were cavalry weapons, true knightly swords, to be used from horseback in big sweeping blows.
The Albion Next Generation Ritter Sword is hand-ground from 1075 carbon steel to a fine satin finish, sharpened and heat-treated by hand in the Albion Forge Shop. The grip is of stabilized birch, wrapped with cord and covered with the highest grade vegetable-tanned calfskin.
