This sword is heavily inspired by the elaborate sword of Frederick III of the Holy Roman Empire. It has a blade of EN45 high carbon steel imbued with a tempered hardness of 50 HRC. The elaborate crossguard and pommel are solid cast from copper. Like Frederick IIIís original sword, the crossguard has its additional ridged embellishments on a single side. The grip was carved from oak wood, overlaid in binding cordage and then wrapped in tight black leather and twisted copper wire.

The wood-core scabbard is sheathed in black leather and fitted with a copper chape and an interlaced leather sword belt.

The original sword of Frederick III is now kept within the Cluny Museum collection in Paris - it was heavily gilt upon the base of the blade. A fitting sword for the 15th century Emperor, his sword epitomized the height of style and craftsmanship for its time. Though Frederick was regarded as slow to make decisions he was nonetheless a shrewd Emperor; he forced the capitulation of Charles the Bold to abandon the siege of the Imperial City of Neuss when Frederick relieved the besieged city with his Imperial Army. In order to avoid a battle which would trap the Burgundians between their own siege lines and the walls and defenders of Neuss against a ready Imperial Army, Charles was forced by Frederick to give his daughter to Frederickís son in marriage.
