Spatha swords

The Celtic-Roman spatha was 75 cm to 110 cm long and had always an approximately 4 cm wide blade of rhombic cross-section without a fuller. The blades edges were parallel or at very low taper and were often selectively hardened. The grip was always made from organic materials such as wood and bone.

Even before the Christian era, the Germans also had this type of sword carried out by the Celts and started the independent development. The blade edges were also mostly parallel, however had sharpened tips. The grip was initially also made of organic materials from the migration period were also increasingly used metal parts, especially bronze, iron (often inlaid with silver), cast silver and even gold.

From the 10th Century, the spatha was replaced by the so-called broad-sword, which can be described as the classic knight sword.
