    Description

    German Two-Handed Broadsword.

    Approximately 67-inches overall with a 49-inch blade with parrying hooks, [or Parierhaken in German]. 18-inch massive blade guard with decorative primitive pattern throughout and rolled coil ends [rings]. Leather-wrapped two-handed handle with raised features leads to a pattern/engraved iron pommel cap. Note: Also known as a Zweihänder in German, these massive swords were not meant to be carried in sheaths, but rather across the shoulder like a halberd. See, A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armor by Stone for similar examples.

    Condition: Very good for its age and configuration. Finish primarily a smooth grey age patina with noticeable age wear and pitting. Cracking and discoloration spots to leather.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
