Hallstatt Sword Mindelheim, class B
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. More information...
