Hanwei’s Rhinelander Bastard sword, typical of late 15th century central European cut-and-thrust swords, is a handsome piece that will be appreciated by both collectors and cutting enthusiasts.
The ring-guard hilt and scent-stopper pommel balance a riveted-tang fullered blade, forged in 5160 high-carbon steel and hardened to 54HRc for an optimal combination of edge-holding and resilience. A leather-wrapped scabbard is included.
