This 12th Century Teutonic Sword has a distinctive Type N ‘’boat’’ or ‘’crescent’’ pommel; a probable relative to the brazil nut pommel this type is depicted in a wide array of period art and sculpture, though few surviving examples remain. The Type XII blade is a long, relatively wide cutting-oriented form which was ideal for the mounted knight or man at arms of its time. Such swords were often favored at this time for both mounted combat and for striking from behind a shield in foot combat.

The blade of this Balaur Arms example is forged from 5160 high carbon steel and finished with a spring temper and a 56-58 HRc hardness. The crossguard and pommel are hand-forged into form from steel and the grip is wood with a binding wrap of dark brown leather. The thick blade tang is stoutly anchored into the pommel with a robust peened construction. The sword is paired with a companion scabbard of wood with a tight leather wrap and a protective steel chape.

Due to distal taper and overall weight, this sword has more finesse than its austere proportions may suggest. The blade retains enough width to cut and hack with notable ability and the contoured N type pommel readily accommodates a ‘’handshake’’ grip or even a second hand placement. When the back of the hand is placed in contact with this pommel it allows for enhanced control of the blade as the contact with the back of the hand and pommel serves together as a ‘’rudder’’ to better control the sword. The grip can readily couch and accommodate a hand clad in mail.
