There are several of these swords in different private and public collections, one in the Wallace Collections and several at the Bavarian National Museum. It is a perfect example of German Military Cut-and-Thrust Swept Hilt and was carried by the Munich Town Guard. The slightly shorter blade and stout hilt were perfect for breaking up a street fight or tavern brawl, as the town guard was often employed to do, and was clearly intended for practical use. This is one of the most practical and prolific swords we have ever offered. It has a well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel blade. The pommel and guard are steel and the grip is wood wrapped in twisted steel wire for a very positive hold. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, This sword includes a scabbard. The matched dagger is not included.
