Toto Arming Sword with Scabbard, 13th / 14th C.

This beautiful arming sword is a replica of a medieval sword that was found in a peat bog in northern Italy. The original, dated to the 13th/ 14th century, is now in the collection of the Royal Armouries, the British museum of arms and armours in Leeds.

The sword has a broad, double-edged blade with a fuller running along about two thirds of its length. The cutting edges are not sharpened. The blade features an etched sigil on both sides with the repeated inscription “TOTO”, a symbol of loyalty. The wooden handle is wrapped in brown leather and the pommel and the slightly curved quillons are made of steel. The leather cap attached to the crossguard serves as a lid over the scabbard mouth, providing additional protection when the sword is sheathed.

The sword comes complete with a brown wood-and-leather scabbard.

Please note that this medieval sword is not a battle ready-ready weapon. It is designed as a collector´s or decoration/display piece and is not suited for combat re-enactment. Besides its quality as a collectible, it is also perfectly suited as a prop, e.g. to complete your costume.
