Product Description

According to Ewart Oakeshott. "Records of the Medieval Sword", page 151.

An identical one is shown on two early 14th century effigies in Germany. (i), of Arnold I Langraph of Cleve, + 1320 in Stiftskirche at Cleve, and (ii), of one of the hero-figures, c. 1308, in the Rathaus at Cologne. Not only are hilts of the swords on these figures exactly the same as this sword, but the size is too,, more proof (if any more is needed, which it shouldn't be) that these short swords were not made for boys, or archers etc., but for knights and in this case, great nobles.
