This sword is named with an eye to the powerful and dynamic Burgundian lords of the 15th Century. A few swords of this style have survived to our times. You can see examples in the Cluny museum in Paris, the Wallace Collection in London and the Schweizerischen Landesmuseum in Zürich. The sculpting of the hilts are expertly done, making the most of line, plane and volume. The effect is similar to the frozen growth of foliage in late gothic wood sculptures.

The guard shares some elements of design with the pommel, in the cutouts and ridges that define the shape. This is unusual in Medieval swords where the guard is normally quite distinct from the pommel in character. Sometimes there are exceptions and this seemed like a good occasion to let the whole hilt show variations of the same form elements.

The mass is mostly centered to the upper half of the blade, close to the hilt and in the rather massive pommel. The thick spine of the blade provides good stiffness. This means the sword is maneuverable and powerful, with good thrusting capabilities. When you hold original swords of this type and size there is an immediate impression of a solid fighting weapon. The Burgundian is developed to provide exactly the same feeling: a weapon balanced for swift movement and powerful delivery. Something to defend your life with in a melee.

The Burgundian has a hand ground high carbon steel blade that is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.

The sword grip comes in a selection of colors, please select an option below.
