This sword is based on a design that dates to 1480 - the twiilight of the Medieval Era. Then, the Venetians, like most of the Italian states depended largely on heavy infantry. Characteristic for its time and place, this sword has retained a thick blade optimized for cutting and chopping, whereas civilian blades at this time has begun to diverge into more tapered forms. Sitting at a historical crossroad, this wide, multi-fullered blade would not look out of place in earlier centuries. The pommel is the square form long popular in Hungary and the Adriatic regions where Venice imported much of its martial manpower. The S-form crossguard with well-defined ricasso rings is the newer development, heralding the ascendency of the complex guards that would make the gauntlet an unnecessary hindrance. The ricasso rings would protect the index finger when placed forward of the guard for extra control and leverage - a technique increasing in popularity after its introduction in the late Medieval period. Overall a sturdy, versatile few-frills weapon built for the rigors of battle.

Crafted by Del Tin of Italy, this Venetian infantrymanís sword has an unsharpened blade ground from Chrome-Vanadium steel that has been tempered to a Rockwell Hardness of 50. The blade is peened to the pommel. The hilt fittings are made from steel and the grip is wood tightly covered in black leather.
