This beautiful single-handed sword is based on a sword assigned to Konrad von Thüringen (Conrad of Thuringia), Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights from 1239 to 1240 AD. The original piece, classified as a Type XIIa according to Oakeshott's typology, is on display for people to admire at the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum) in Berlin, Germany.
This interpretation has a hardened spring steel blade tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC. It is full-tanged and peened (not screwed) to the pommel. The steel cross guard is slightly curved and the handsome wooden grip features a carved diamond pattern and brass rings. The medieval one-hander is capped with a thick, octagonal steel pommel bearing a cross motif on both sides. The gorgeous scabbard with wooden core is covered in leather and comes complete with a carrying belt wound around it.
The blade's blunt, 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make this high medieval arming sword ideal for combat reenactment, stage fighting or sparring.
