The Katzbalger is a short one-handed battle sword of the Renaissance. It was the preferred contact weapon of the mercenaries of the late 15th and 16th centuries. Particularly striking is the relatively short and broad blade, hand protection in S-shape and the so-called fish-fin-pommel.
The tip of this replica is rounded and edge is 2mm thick (i.e. blunt). The sword is thus suitable for light show combats and and fencing exercises, but we can not take any warranty against breakage. The blade has three grooves.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
