The Magistro’s choice
The Flos Two Handed Sword is designed on Oakeshott Type XVa, a blade that was common from mid 1300 up to the mid 16th c. The Flos Two Handed Sword has an extreme triangular profile taper and a diamond section, with an acute point that is, as usual, rounded and thickened for safety and study.
