Though this German longsword may have a deceptively simpler form than others of its time, it is eminently suitable for optimizing advanced longsword techniques and handling; the straight crossguard terminates in two tapered knobs, ideal for a bludgeoning Mordhau strike with the crossguard against an armored foe. The pommel is in a mace-like form which is suitable both for striking and for extending the grip for greater striking leverage.
The tempered blade is forged from high carbon steel and has a shallow hollow-ground cross section of the blade which gives strength to the body of the blade whilst reducing some unneeded weight. The crossguard and pommel are crafted from steel and the blade tang is robustly peened to the pommel for a strong hilt construction. A grip of wood which was tightly fitted with stitched leather completes the sword.
Included is a wooden scabbard which is bound and stitched in dyed, quality vegetable-tanned leather. An inscribed Teutonic Knights cross is set into a single side of the leather scabbard locket. Please note that a gap between the scabbard when fully sheathed and crossguard is normal. Also, a matching dagger to this sword is also available separately.

Just received this baby, but before I say anything know that I’m no sword expert. This is my first sword ever. So first thong I noticed is the the pointy part of the crossguard is not aligned with the fuller which makes the sword look a bit weird, its off by about 2-3mm. The second thing is the texture of the grip and sheath, they feel the same way they look on the pictures, plastic. Next thing is that there’s a few scratches on the crossguard, sheath and pommel, hard to notice but they are present. Overall I still think that its a decent sword for its price, the imperfections are hard to notice if you’re not looking from up close.
This is my first sword, also no expert I will say it’s absolutely beautiful and feels nice, heavier than I thought but I think I need to lift more lol. The edge is pretty blunt I suggest getting a sharpening kit.
