Schiavona
Time Period: 16th-17th century
Location: Italy
Common Construction: Steel


The Schiavona is an Italian broadsword used by cavalry in the late 16th and 17th centuries. The term "broadsword" denotes only that it was wider than a rapier, not that the blade was particularly wide compared to other swords.

The schiavona has a double edged blade and a basket hilt, and unlike the rapier was used in war. Although only manufactured in Italy, the blade was traded to the armies of many other nations.
