( / )

Dating from mid 15th Century to mid 16th Century. The Swiss Degen was a short Medieval and Renaissance sword that was particularly loved by Landsknecht mercenaries who would have called it a ‘Schweizerdegen’. The characteristically Swiss design was also used and worn by civilians and this type of sword always had the top and bottom guards curving toward each other. Daggers of time showed similar features and were often called ‘Schweizerdolch’. This sword has a strong double edged blade that is hexagonal for the first 30cm/12” and then transitions to a diamond section. The guards are latten (brass) and the grip is ebonised ash wood.

The Degen comes with a fantastic wood cored scabbard covered in vegtan leather and finished with a latten (brass) chape.

Blade length 62cm/24.5"

Overall length 78cm/31”

Grip length 10cm/4”

Weight 730g/1.6lbs

Edge sharpness

Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge. Sharp has been ground to give a reasonable cutting edge, but final honing, if required, is by the customer.

If your colour of choice is out of stock, why not try a different colour?
