Description

Replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria, the Paul Chen Hanwei 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.

    Great sword. The scabbard locket is a bit tight around the throat, such that there is metal on metal contact when withdrawing the sword. Otherwise, I’m very happy with this purchase.

    This is one of the finest swords that I have ever handled! I own two other swords that that I would say are at least the equal to this masterpiece, but those swords were more than twice the cost of this sword. The over-sized pommel and hand and a half tang give this sword great balance and a VERY quick blade. I ‘d give it six stars if I could.!
