Description of the Product

Franz, Count of Erbach-Erbach was famous for his collection of antiques exhibited in his castle at the beginning of the 19th century and in his great hall he had an extensive collection of old German weapons. The original, from around 1480, of this German hand and a half sword was among the swords in his astonishing collection.

During the 15th century armor had reached the peak of effectiveness. To combat this, an improved sword design was required. The Erbach sword is an excellent example of this class of swords. This Renaissance weapon can be assigned to the “Oakeshott Type XVIIIa without fuller” category. Well balanced, it could be used single handed, or with two hands to deliver a powerful blow or a deadly thrust. This sword features a very beautiful steel hilt as the crossguard twists toward its ends, which have the same twist as the pommel riveted firmly in its place. Leather sheath with steel fittings is included. Can be seen in Records Of The Medieval Sword by Ewart Oakeshott.
