A common tool and weapon for the lower classes of 16th and early 17th century Central Europe, this wholly utilitarian form of the Dussack cutting sword is hand forged from a single billet of steel and has its tang cunningly formed into a single piece grip and knuckle bar. The steel is 1035 high carbon steel which was tempered to a final 50-54 HRc hardness. Like originals it was left with a rough state of polishing which leaves the marks from the blows of the hammer visible. It has a simple wrap of leather around the grip and it comes with a stitched sheath of faux leather. The sheath has a buttoned retaining strap and a belt loop for easy wear.

The term Dussack can be used for a wide array of cutting swords with sweeping, stout blades reminiscent of a cutlass or falchion. Some examples are quite lavish with complex hilts, shell guards and levels of craftsmanship fit for the well-heeled of society. Others such as this one are clearly a pragmatic tool and self defense weapon of the lower classes. The one shown here is based on a Czech example with its hanger or cutlass like blade, though other forms existed as evidenced by a mid-16th century German example with a straight and wide cleaver like blade. These Dussack have a form and craftsmanship not unlike utility knives of the period and this short fighting sword may be an extended derivative of such practical tools.
