Our Hand-and-a-Half Sword crafted by Paul Chen is replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria and represents the pinnacle of beauty and balance in medieval swords. Classically simple in design with a flattened diamond-section blade and cruciform hilt, the original dates from the early part of the 15th century. The inch Lion Rampant” emblem of the Hapsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau inch Running Wolf” guild mark and a marigold maker’s mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over a cord wrap. See Hanwei models SH2034N for the antique-finished version and SH2016 for the inch Practical” version of the Hand-and-a-Half sword.
