Longsword of Svante NilssonYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This is my 3D model of Svante Nilsson’s sword, based on the reproduction made by Albion Swords (albion-swords.com)
This sword could be clasified as a longsword / bastard sword, fitting the Oakeshott XVIII type (hybrid subtype). All dimensions are modeled in real size. The blade is 85 cm long and 5,3 cm wide at the broadest part, with a very thick spine and hollow-ground cross section. It also features a secondary bevel for the edge, and a 5,8 cm long ricasso. The ‘S’ shaped guard is octogonal in section, and is partially covered by a rain guard made entirely of leather. The wooden grip starts with oval section from the guard base, tapering to a round section at the pommel. It is finished in brown leather wrapped over a cord.
The overall length of the sword is 118 cm from the tip of the blade to the end of the pommel.
