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 “ Rampant” emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau “Running ” 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.

Excellent sword, especially for the price
I really enjoy owning this sword. It’s intended as a replica of an existing sword documented by Ewart Oakeshott as XVIIIa.1 in Records of the Medieval Sword, and is very well-made. The balance and handling are good, the edge is sharp, and it’s just plain fun to use. It’s also what I consider to be a very handsome sword. Highly recommended.
