One-and-a-half-handed sword XXII
The sword was primarily designed for slashing, which can be told from the dull point of the blade. Many swords were hollow-ground which served to reduce weight. The rivet plate at the downside of the pommel developed into a disc-shaped attachment in the 6th through 7th century which was very common in western Europe up to the late Middle Ages.
