Highland Sword

Imagem

The Scots developed their own tradition of “hand-and-a-half” weapons, derived from earlier medieval Scottish and Irish longswords. This Highland sword (Claidheamh dà làimh) has a blade just over 3 ft (1 m) long, and was shorter and lighter than German doppelhänder weapons. The forward-sloping quillons ending in quatrefoils were a common feature.

Características:
Data - Século XVI
Origem - Germânia
Peso - 3.3 Kg
Compr. - 1,6 m

LowLand Sword

Imagem

Outwardly this sword is typical of the weapons used by German Landsknecht mercenaries on European battlefields during the early and mid-16th century. However, in this particular example, the blade is surmounted by a hilt produced in Scotland, and it is of typical Scottish design.

Características:
Data - XV
Origem - Escócia
Peso - 2.9 Kg
Compr. - 1,48 m

Flambard (Flammenschwert ou Paratschwerter)

Imagem

In 16th- and early 17th-century Germany, particularly ornate two-handed swords such as this example were used on ceremonial occasions. These paratschwerter (parade swords, also called “bearing swords”) were longer and heavier than battlefield weapons, and often so ornate that they were of little use as offensive weapons. The flame form of the blade (flammenschwert) was impressive, but made little difference to its cutting qualities.

Características:
Data - XV
Origem - Germânia
Peso - 3.3 Kg
Compr. - 1,6 m

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Doppelhänder Sword

Imagem

This doppelhänder sword was designed as a battlefield weapon, and is of a type used by the German Landsknecht. The sword has a blunt tip because it was designed to hack through enemy units rather than to pierce its victims.

Características:
Data - XVI
Origem - Germânia
Peso - 3.18 Kg
Compr. - 1,4 m
