A classic sidesword made for the Munich Town Guard, around 1610. This double-edged cut and thrust blade mounted with a complex steel guard would prove an excellent weapon for the close-quarters situations encountered in an urban setting. This sword would also be of the type advocated by George Silver in his treatise on the use of the sword. There are several surviving swords of this style in museums and private collections. The one replicated here is based on an example in the Wallace Collection, London.

The complex guard is hand-made in steel and can be blued for an additional fee. The blade is 6150 steel and is .25 inches thick. The balance point three inches in front of the guard allows a nimble action to this stout sword. This would be an excellent piece to add to your collection to illustrate the development of these exceptional fighting swords.

Our rapier hilts are hand crafted to order. With the demand for our pieces delivery times usually run in the 8 to 12 month range.
