This is a knightly longsword for war from the end of the 15th century. A steel wheel pommel and slightly S-shaped guard are mounted on this elegant Oakeshott Type XVIIIb blade. The grip is 8" long and bottle-shaped in style, with a full lower grip and then sharply tapering upper grip. This long sword provides great reach and versatility to the warrior who rode to battle with it at his side.

This style of sword was much used by the German man-at-arms of the late 15th century. It is depicted in many illustrations of knights from the late 15th and early 16th centuries, A Knight, Death and the Devil by Albrecht Dürer being one of the most famous. In fact, many of Dürer's knights carry such a sword and thus why we have named it after him.
