Our Schiavona Guard is made from 12 ga and 1/4″ 4130 carbon steel. This guard features a complex basket of bars that gives complete coverage to the hand and even some of the wrist. This guard has ricasso space and carefully formed and dished bars that we have designed to the specs of extant pieces; specifically the “Type III Schiavona“. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard we do offer the 3 finishes: “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.
We designed this guard to be a perfect rendition of the type III Schiavonas that were the sword of choice by the Venetian “Doge” from the early to mid 17th century.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Back Sword Blade, Standard Long Sword Blade, Type XV Blade and Type XI Blade.
