De profundis

 

“Stare into the abyss long enough, the abyss stares back”

– F. Nietzsche

This is not a dagger for everyone, but the scholars of Vincenzo Saviolo’s teachings could find in it the perfect high end companion. Cuore dell’Oceano Dagger can pair with a beautiful Military Rapier.

A Star among Stars

 

“S’i’ fosse foco, ardere’ il mondo;”

– Cecco Angiolieri, Sonetti

 

La Splendente is inspired by a Hermann Historica’s original, Auction 61 – 2.05.2011. and it was our first high end work, dating back to 2015. The dagger was entirely forged, etched and polished by hand. This fine piece has an iron handle, and it is called scheibendolch or sfondagiaco for its peculiar anatomy, that had the purpose of entering in the parts left uncovered by the plate armour, breaking the chainmail.

The French Lily

 

Io dirò vero, e tu ’l ridì tra ’ vivi:
l’angel di Dio mi prese, e quel d’inferno
gridava: “O tu del ciel, perché mi privi?

– Dante Alighieri, Commedia, Purgatorio V

 

Guillaume de Durfort was a french condottiero leading the guelph army during the Battle of Campaldino in 1289. He was killed by a ghibelline “quadrello”, a crossbow arrow, that hit him in the eye. His tomb, our reference, is located in Santissima Annunziata Cathedral in Florence. The sheath and the handle are in a wonderful french blue, with fleurs-de-lys. The pommel is based on the crescent one found in Perthshire (Scotland), also compared to the specimen in Museo del Bargello in Florence. These are of a later period compared to Durfort’s reconstruction, but taking inspiration from these was the most coherent choice. The blade and guard were taken from the so called “Dante’s dagger” found in Campaldino and preserved in Dante’s House in Florence. This work was possible thanks to a wide research supported by the counseling of Dr.Giovanni Rotondi, Il Gatto e la Volpe Historical Jewelery.

Cuore dell’Oceano Military Rapier was inspired by the inv. A535 preserved in the Wallace Collection. The blue stingray skin and the exquisite finishing give it a powerful effect, second only to its blade presence. This is not a sword for everyone, but the scholars of Vincenzo Saviolo’s teachings could find in it the perfect high end companion. Cuore dell’Oceano Military Rapier can pair with a beautiful parrying dagger.

The Spanish Mercenary

Vencedor Montante is based on the Renaissance War Two Handed Sword used from the beginning of the 16th century. The reference treatises, including Domingo Luis Godinho’s Arte de Esgrima and Luis Pacheco de Narváez’s Nueva Ciencia are of Iberian origin. These masters, from the Verdadera Destreza School, explain its use in the naval field, but also in the urban environment, in threat situations. The majesty of this sword made her legendary in the hands of condottieri and mercenaries. A mention goes to M° Ton Puey for his precious advice and research.

The Crowned Justice

“Spada son contro ogni arma mortale, né lanza né azza né daga contra mi vale. Longa o curta me posso fare e me strengo e vegno allo zogho stretto, e vegno allo tor d’ spada e allo abrazare, mia arte si è rotare e ligadure so ben fare de coverte e ferire sempre in quelle voglio finire. Chi contra me farà ben lo farò languire. E son Reale e mantengo la justicia, la bontà acresco e destruzo la malizia. Chi me guarderà facendo in me crose, de fatto d’armizare gli farò fama e vose.”

– MS. Getty Ludwig XV.13, Flos Duellatorum, Fiore dei Liberi, 1409-1410.

 

The “Fior di Battaglia” Two Handed Sword is inspired by Royal Armouries inv. IX.1106, found in Lake Constance and dated about 1365. This sword type is archetypical when you think about Master at Arms Fiore dei Liberi’s treatise.

A Dark Fairy-Tail

“Once upon a time, there was a creature with two heads born from the same spark. They were both sons of God, they were strong and fierce together. Then one ate the other, who became the tail, so that the survivor could never forget his decision.”

 

Cain is an Oakeshott Type XII, inspired by a similar sword preserved in Musée de l’Armée and aimed to practice sword and buckler from the I.33 medieval tradition.
On the cuir-bouilli and tooled chape, the story comes to life.

A Symbol of Power

Duca di Milano is inspired by the sword attributed to Lodovico il Moro and dated to the second half of 15th c. More generally, the original sword has been surely forged for a Visconti or a Sforza, showing masterful skills both in the construction process and the following decoration. We took some of the most relevant details crafting our interpretation as a full custom sword, perfectly tailored on the customer’s needs.

A Stiff Beauty

Belladama is inspired by the Wallace Collection inv. A.460, dated between 1350 and 1400 a.C. The collector and arms historian Ewart Oakeshott supposed that the original blade’s profile could have been a Type XVIII, but the restoration probably left a Type XV. The grip and the blackening of the pommel and cross were possibly additions from the 19th century, so our interpretation aimed to recover its original appereance. The precious scabbard, with silver-plated brass mountings, was inspired by the “Westminster Sword” preserved in Museum of London dated to the second quarter of 14th c. and made with the counseling of Dr. Giovanni Rotondi – Il Gatto e la Volpe Medieval Jewelry.

A Minstrel’s Song

“My armor is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!”

– Smaug, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s the Hobbit

 

Draco is our interpretation of the wonderful type XIV sword preserved in Deutsches Solingen Klingenmuseum. An accurate study was made for the 2015 exhibition “Sword – Form and Thought” and in 2018 we had the chance to analyse the sword in person thanks to the museum curator, Dr. Sixt Wetzler and the museum dIrector Dr. Isabel Immel. Becaus of its length and dynamics it’s very functional both in cut and thrust. We tried to preserve the authentic forms and balancing, even if the blade is blunt as usual, and the customer asked for a shorter grip. Draco is especially devised for I.33 sword & buckler practice.
