I love this ... the schiavonas is a very useable onehand-sword ...not a rapier what use only duels ... this can use in a battle. I love it. :-D How much money and time to make a battle ready one for me?

Hi there, sorry I missed your message.
One of those is in the 650\700€ range and they're all battle ready, just blunt and flexible for full contact training.

I love schiavonas and this one... It's beautiful... A superbly crafted schiavona. I am definitely going to commission you in future for one of my own.

Gorgeous work! I especially like the attention to the "cat's head" pommel. Did you base it off of an existing model (such as were recovered on the Marie Rose) or is this an original motif?
I forget if I asked you already, are your swords for museums, collectors' walls or cases or can they be used by traditional weapons fighters?

Thank you! Yes, it's based on an original, the customer sent me pictures of it. All of my swords are based on original designs with small touches here and there to suit the customer needs, and they're all made for historical fencers but I'm pretty sure you can hang them on a wall too.

Indeed, in the movie he's using a venetian Schiavona too, though I have no idea why, but good spotting!

i think they wanted him to have a sword that mimicked his sheer size and style of combat.

I think you're absolutely right, it is just a bit out of historical context.

Do you feel like an 17th century slavic cavalry soldier of the venetian empire? In that case surely it's your weapon! :D

Well I am Czech, so I guess that makes me somewhat slavic. I got a little bit of Italian blood as well, so I guess it is!

How would you describe this sword feels like to handle (That sentence sounds weird, but I hope you get it)?

:icondanelli-armouries:
Danelli-Armouries Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Don't worry I get it. The closest thing to a schiavona is a Scottish basket hilted backsword, they share a lot regardind measures, balance and handling. It's generally regarder as a cavalry weapon, it feel very good in your hands when cutting but with much less mulinels than his Scottish cousin. It's not light as a rapier but is not that far from it, though thrusting is not what it is designed for.

I think that answers my question. Unfortunately all of my knowledge of swords is academic; I haven't had any physical experience handling one, but it is an area of interest to me. I like hearing about it from people with experience in the field.

Well I'm both a swordmaker and an historical fencer, so I spend my working time and my freetime with a sword in my hands. You should definatly try to find an hema group close to where you live and start fencing.

Well, though they share a lot, for that song a Scottish basket hilt suits it better than a venetian schiavona. But surely this is the closest design after
