Spathae have been used since the Roman era and were later altered by Germanic people who enhanced them to suit their demands. A Sparta is a thrusting sword with a large, double-edged, and straight blade that may be wielded one-handed.
Our reconstruction is based on a Spatha as it was used in the Germanic settlement area between the 1st and 6th centuries, during the so-called Migration Period or Barbarian Invasion Period. The blade is made of high-quality springsteel that has been heat treated to a hardness of 48 Rockwell. The blade has a noticeable fuller that provides both flexibility and weight savings. For safety, the edges of this medieval sword are dull, and the tip is rounded. Both the pommel and the guard are formed of riveted brass sheets that surround an inner cow-horn sheet. Wood, brass, and horn make up the hilt.
A leather-wrapped hardwood scabbard with a brass mound and chape is included in the delivery.
