A sword was one of the most versatile weapons for a medieval soldier to carry. Even those who utilized pikes, such as the pikemen in the Landsknecht, carried one – that particular sword being this unique looking Landsknecht Katzbalger Sword. In fact, this short arming sword was the signature blade of the Landsknecht, and it is not hard to see why, with its thick, effective blade and its unique yet highly defensive guard. This katzbalger possesses a hand crafted steel blade, set with straight, unsharpened edges and adorned with three fullers, which run down a majority of the blade, helping to keep the weapon light. The tip is rounded, for safety and for authenticity, as the katzbalger was primarily a slashing weapon. The blackened steel guard echoes a braided figure-eight shape, which helps to protect the hand, should a blade slide down during a clash, while the grip is made entirely from wood. Included with the sword is a matched wooden scabbard, with a unique shape and fitting at the chape. Leather covers the scabbard. Swordsmen were not the most common unit in the Landsknecht, but almost every member carried a Landsknecht Katzbalger Sword, simply because it was one of the most effective back-up weapons that any soldier on the field could ask for.
