Our cat’s head profile pommel is cut from 3/4″ steel 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 8 oz. We offer 3 finishes as well: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
Cat’s head profile pommels were very common on the cutting swords manufactured in Venice in the 17th century but were not exclusive to that period and place.
