Additional information

Replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria, the Paul Chen Hand-and-a-Half Sword represents the pinnacle of beauty and balance in medieval swords. Classically simple in design with a flattened diamond-section blade and cruciform hilt, the original dates from the early part of the 15th century. The Lion Rampant emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau Running Wolf guild mark and a marigold makers mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over wood. Features a sharpened carbon steel blade.

  1. Evan

    I bought one of these twelve years ago and it has been utterly fantastic. Holds up well to test cutting and beating around. This sword in particular is a paragon of the idea “best bang for your buck”. Could bot recommend enough.

    I really enjoy owning this sword. It’s a well-made replica of an existing sword documented by Ewart Oakeshott as XVIIIa.1 in Records of the Medieval Sword, and is very well-made. The balance and handling are good, the edge is sharp, and it’s just plain fun to use. It’s also what I consider to be a very handsome sword. Highly recommended.
