The Olbrecht German Sword (#1551)

Based on the Type XX German Longswords of 16th century, the Olbrecht is a true warsword. A late evolution of the medieval sword, the Type XX’s broad, refined blade is designed to effect powerful strokes with devastating results. Twin fullers give the blade a unique design while both adding strength and reducing weight. Like many Renaissance two-handed warswords the handle is long and designed to provide adequate leverage for heavy blows. A scentstopper pommel (common to the Type XX) and long, slightly curved guard complete the weapon. While some of the larger two-handed swords of Type XX style were decorative in purpose, the Olbrecht is a true battle-ready sword – even if there are no longer battles for it to fight.
