This sword is based on an original in the Reichstadtmuseum in Rothenburg, Germany. This was a very fun and challenging project with the goal of building the scabbard and by-knives similar to a few different surviving examples and images. The grips of the sword and handles of the knives are antler and an exotic dark wood. We also took a few different 16th-century drawings as reference for the scabbard tooling.
