The Schiavona was a Renaissance sword that became popular in Italy during the 16th and 17th centuries. Stemming from the 16th-century sword of the Venetian Doge guard, the name came from the fact that the guard consisted largely of Istrian and Dalmatian Slavs - Slovenes and Croats (Schiavoni). It was widely recognisable for its "cat's-head pommel" and distinctive handguard made up of many leaf-shaped brass or iron bars that was attached to the cross-bar and knucklebow rather than the pommel.
