This model is based on originals and period artwork. From the latter category, our main inspiration was Albrecth Dürer, hence our choice of naming.
As usual, we wanted to include some details that would be unique to it. The most noticeable of these are the slender and angular grip and the deceivingly simple-looking pommel.
The blade is hand-ground from 51crv4/6150 steel, almost exclusively on large-radius wheels to better approximate period grinding methods, tool marks and anomalies. It is sharp on it's entire length on both edges with the tip being subtly reinforced by making the bevel more obtuse, as seen on some originals. While the exact amount of distal taper varies a little between pieces due to the free-hand nature of grinding, care is taken to keep it as stiff as possible without making it clumsy.
The grip has a quite angular shape with the lower, wider part being a well-defined flat hexagon while the upper half is rhomboid in cross-section. The wooden core is bound in linen to reinforce it and is wrapped in thin vegetable-tanned goat leather.
The hollow pommel is silver-soldered together from 3 pieces of relatively thin steel as seen on several originals. This keeps the overall weight low while pushing the point of balance further down the blade and results in a unique handling experience.
