Rhinelander longsword

The Rhinelander longsword, a late 15th century central European longsword suitable for both cutting and thrusting, is a handsome piece that will be appreciated by both reenactors and HEMA / backyard cutting enthusiasts. The ring-guard hilt and scent-stopper pommel balance a riveted-tang fullered blade that has been forged from 5160 high-carbon steel hardened to 54HRc for an optimal combination of edge-holding and resilience. The scabbard is wood-core with a sewn leather wrap and steel fittings. The name is Germanic, but this style longsword was used all across Europe, by all schools and styles of fencing. This ring-hilt style is a classic!
