Replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria, the Hand and a Half Sword (SH2034) 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 Lion Rampant emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau Running Wolf guild mark and a marigold makers mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over a cord wrap.
