The Mindelheim Sword represents a battle ready reconstruction of a Hallstatt C (800-650) sword of a horseman with high social status. This is the earliest sword-type in central Europe that was found in bronze and iron. As bronze isn’t a good choice for sword combat, this model could come in handy to many reenactors of the Bronze Age. The blade fullers are hand-ground. The blade tang is threaded and the nut is integrated in the end cap of the hilt. The riveted handle is made of beech or oak wood.
The version with the blunted blade is battle-ready.
Made in the Czech Republic.
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.
