Mercenary Type XVa.... $880

We named this sword in honor of the professional soldiers of the 15th century -- men without a country who sold their swords to the highest bidder in the numerous wars between countries and city-states of the period. This is a plain, no nonsense version of our Type XVa, well-suited for use by such a pragmatic soldier of fortune.

This is a short and handy hand and a half sword with a very stiff blade, primarily for thrusting, but pretty decent for cutting as well. When you handle these swords they are very ready in your hand.

One of the quickest types there is, as it follows your intentions at quicksilver like speed. Because of the very narrow point the spine can be made quite thick without the blade becoming cumbersome. This makes for superior stiffness and a very effective thrust.
