German longsword (German bastard sword - 2nd generation)

The second generation sharp German longsword from Paul Chen / Hanwei. (Hanwei refers to these as their "German bastard sword", but I'm always in favor of promoting proper sword terminology). Whatever you call them, these swords are magnificent! Sharp diamond cross-section tempered steel blade, solid construction with a peened tang and a long grip that makes this sword a joy to wield. Antiqued blade, wood grip covered in leather, blackened steel guard and pommel, wood patterned polymer scabbard with blackened steel fittings. Also available is a matching training/sparring/blunt version.
