Another great war sword of Type XIIIa, but of more slender proportions than our Duke. This shares the same blade as our Ritter, but with this long grip it tips the balance to becoming a XIIIa. This is a more ornate version of our Steward XIIIa war sword. An octagonal pommel (available in either bronze or steel) of type I1 echos the distinct shapes of the unusual cross: a version of style 2 but with small beveled swellings in the middle of each arm. This cross is inspired by a remarkable sword found in the banks of Fyris river in Uppsala, Sweden. The grip also has eight planes and a riser in the middle as a support for the hand. Mounted in a hilt with a long grip like this the blade becomes very agile and quick.
