Our brass cat’s head profile pommel is cut from 3/4″ brass and contoured to reflect the specifications of the cat’s head profile pommels commonly found on the Schiavona and other Italian swords of the Renaissance period. These pommels come complete with a threaded pin that is tightened with a common 3/8″ wrench or socket. We offer it with M6x1.0 or M8x1.25 thread. Its total weight is 9 oz. We offer 2 finishes as well: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin finish and“Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish.
Brass cat’s head profile pommels were sometimes used on the cutting swords that originated in Venice and Brescia in the 17th century. The Schiavona was often one of the swords that received a brass/bronze cat’s head pommel. This gave them the impression of being a more prestigious sword with the “gold” highlights.
