Munich – Type XVIIIb

From:  425,00 (Exc. VAT)

Our “Munich” longsword is inspired by one of the most widely known examples of type XVIIIb (inventory No. W 872.1) in the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum in Munich, Germany. Also if you are familiar with the work of Albrecht Dürer, you can spot a sword of very similar proportions on one of his most famous and most complex artworks – Knight, Death and the Devil (1513).
