Our Hand-and-a-Half Sword crafted by Hanwei is replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria and represents the pinnacle of beauty and balance in medieval swords. Classically simple in design with a forged and heat treated flattened diamond-section 1566 carbon steel live blade and a cruciform hilt of rugged and maintenance free stainles steel.  The original dates from the early part of the 15th century. The “Lion Rampant” emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel which is also of stainless steel, while the Passau “Running Wolf” guild mark and a marigold maker’s mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over a cord wrap for strength and longevity while the mouth and drag of the scabbard are stainless steel again for strength and longevity.  See Hanwei model SH2106 for the “Practical” version of the Hand-and-a-Half sword.
