Knight's Edge (Ritter Steel) 75" Landsknecht Flamberge/Flambard
purchased in 2002
Huge and hefty, it's a menacing presence on display. Yes, it's
75". That's 6'3" (190 cm). Taller than me. Huge!
Realistically, this isn't at all practical for fighting with. It easily
weighs twice what it should for a functional two-handed sword. But it's
not unreasonable for a "bearing sword", which historically weren't meant
to be practical. They were oversized swords meant to be visually impressive
for parades and the like, showing off the wealth and status of the owners.
In that regard, this could be seen as a very modest bearing sword. There
are historical examples that are significantly larger.
