Cretzer II, The Katzbalger

Cretzer II, The Katzbalger

When the Renaissance began, warfare was entering a great era of changes. The upbringing of firearms made heavy armor less useful, and techniques adapted. The landskenechte were one of the most recognizable trained units because of their gear: mulit-coloured puffed sleeves, gigantic berets and some of the most iconic weapons of the time. Between lances and zweihanders, landskenechte all used a much shorter sword, whose guard aided in parrying: the Katzbalger. Worn without a scabbard, it could be drawn quickly when dire times came, like when their walls of lances were rendered inefficient. It’s thanks to their great training, discipline and iconic gear, like the Katzbalger, that these military men are still remembered today.

Workshop

This new Katzbager blade was forged for a more historically accurate look. With a well defined point, sharp edges, and heavier handle this sword is easy to wield and looks great. Still made of our famous Calimacil foam, it stays safe and extremely durable. Steel-coloured, the blade sits atop of a silver handle with tarnished gold details. your choice of removable guard, the same as our katanas’ tsubas, make this sword more versatile and easier to store.

Characters

The Katzbalger sword absolutely must be part of historical reenactors’ outfits, especially those of the Renaissance. Tragic heroes will appreciate its theatrical aspect, as will some fighters and duelists who’s styles and panache can’t be matched. Moreover, many mages and merchants will learn to love its guard, a unique feature for a sword.
