51 ¾” length with 41 ¾” double edged blade. Specifically made in the 15th century North Italian or Spanish style with pierced pommel in the Venetian fashion and straight cross guard. See Armi Bianche Italiane #124, for a related sword dated to 1470. Black leather covered grip with transverse banding and a central boss, both of which assist in positioning the hands without looking away from the adversary. Shows genuine ageing and patina as expected for an original period example.
