The Schiavona is a complex hilted cut and thrust sword used by Italian mercenaries.
In the age where rapiers were the standard for personal defence and duels, this was an equally elegant weapon, but far better suited to warfare.

Unlike a Scottish Basket, the Schiavona's basket is built in a way to allow you to hold it completely en pointe. It also has a thumb-ring, assisting with false-edge and quick redirection of cuts, and the handle shape allows the user to wield it effectively with many different grips and techniques.

As always, our hilts are fully functional, and the basket here will hold strong against strikes and protect your hand and forearm.

Whilst most Schiavona had straight blades, some did sport curved blades, so we offer both options for this beautiful sword.

Standard Length: 100cm
