The Del Tin Italian Two Handed Sword is based on a Northern Italian design from the early 16th century. The large blade has a flattened hexagonal cross section with a central fuller and ricasso section set off by secondary guards. The guard and pommel are made of steel and share the same twisted design. The long grip is made of hard wood covered in dark brown leather. The unsharpened blade is made of well tempered Chrome-Vanadium steel with a hardness of 50HRC and is peened to the pommel for durability.
The sword comes unassembled to minimize shipping costs. Assembly requires the crossguard, grip and pommel to be fitted over the swords tang and tightened into place with a pommel nut screwed over the tang end.
Please Note: The grip of this sword is a very dark brown. It may appear almost black in the photos, but it is in fact very dark brown
