Ring Hilt Swiss Saber (#1353)

The Swiss Saber
German, Inspirational piece

This historically inspired fantasy battle ready sword is based on the Swiss Saber, a two-handed, singled edged medieval sword of the renaissance and early modern period. The ringed hilt is typical of many 16th century swords, but the crown pommel is an original design (loosely based on a historical example).

The Swiss Sabre, or Schweizerdegen, was popular in Switzerland during the High Middle Ages. Unlike the “Schweizersäbel”, a modern term, coined in 1914 by antiquarian and curator Eduard Achilles Gessler (1800 – 1947) of the Swiss National Museum, The Schweizerdegen is a 16 th Century saber used by Swiss soldiers. The ringed hilt is typical of many 16th century swords, but the crown pommel is an original design (loosely based on a historical example). Sabers such as this would have been carried by Swiss mercenaries as they famously served in the armies of other nations
