This left-handed version of a Renaissance Hand and a Half sword was hand forged by Wulflund of the Czech Republic. It is meant to be used by left-handed people with the dominant hand closer to the guard. Dubbed the ‘’Matteo’’ it has a blade of 14260 CSN high carbon steel that was tempered to a hardness of 50-52 HRC. The complex swept hilt and pommel were handcrafted by the smith and are of steel. The grip was finished with a form-fitted wrap of leather with risers beneath the leather.

This hilt of this sword is reinforced by the welding of the crossguard and the pommel to the thick blade tang. The tang was then given a large peen on the pommel. These measures have given the hilt a very robust construction; its hilt fittings are quite resistant to shifting or becoming loose with use.

This sword has a center of balance that is quite close to the crossguard, making it a very dextrous and fluidly moving sword for its size. This was accomplished by having a blade with a tapered profile coupled with an extensive crossguard and large, counter-weight pommel. The balance is such that a person with average strength can, with a single hand, maneuver the sword quite easily. However, the hilt is large enough that one-handed use is somewhat clumsy and clearly not an optimization of its full speed and power, but it does demonstrate the balance of this sword which favors speed and agility over raw striking power.

If you intended to use this sword for cutting, we recommend utilizing our sharpening service to give the blade a sharp, secondary bevel edge. The default edge is ‘’slightly sharp’’, but many will find it unsatisfyingly dull.

Please Note: The grip color and the type of leather grip wrap used on this sword can vary - grip colors can vary from brown to black. There may also be variations in hilt style or grip length.
