Quick Overview

The Schiavona is one of the most beautiful of all the basket-hilt swords. This sword has a steel basket, and the traditional brass catshead pommel. The single-edged blade is well balanced and well tempered. The Schiavona, like its contemporary, the Claymore, was a cut and thrust sword, and although used alone, frequently a light buckler or target was also employed.

Details

The Schiavona is one of the most beautiful of all the basket-hilt swords. Originally used by the Slavic Mercenaries hired by the Doge of Venice, the Schiavona proved to be such an effective and attractive sword that it was soon in use all throughout Europe. Interestingly enough, in Drummond's famous book, "Ancient Scottish Weapons", there are several Schiavonas, many of which are of the style that Windlass have decided to replicate. This sword, hand forged in India by Windlass Steelcrafts, has a steel basket, and the traditional brass catshead pommel. The single-edged blade is well balanced and well tempered. The Schiavona, like its contemporary, the Claymore, was a cut and thrust sword, and although used alone, frequently a light buckler or target was also employed. Leather scabbard included.
