Darksword’s German Executioner Sword is based on an original sword now kept within the collection of the Medieval Crime Museum (Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum) in Germany. Darksword’s German Executioner’s Sword has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel with mirrored decorative embossing on both sides. The blade bears a grim message: ‘’Ich schone niemand’’ - ‘’I spare no one’’. At the base of the blade Justice, bearing aloft her scales and her sword, stands among a flaming pyre. The date 1729 is on the blade amid scrollwork and leering demon and gargoyle heads.

The pommel and crossguard are of steel and the grip is of wood overlaid with brown leather. The sword comes with a wooden scabbard overlaid with brown leather and fitted with a protective chape of steel.

The original that Darksword based this sword on dates to the late 1720’s - a time when execution by sword was beginning to become a waning practice. Weapons meant solely for execution were often large and imposing for a reason; sometimes they would be shown to the accused beforehand to intimidate them into a quick confession. The ominous inscriptions put on the blades of many only served to heighten the foreshadowing of fate to the accused.

When the time came for this sword to remove the head of the convicted, a large, broad cutting blade helped to deliver a great amount of cutting force onto the target to aid in making the execution strike quick and clean.
