The above is a photo of our munitions grade basket hilt. This example was developed for a HEMA group requiring a light hilt which is rugged enough to withstand percussive blows. the 16ga steel is dished and overlapped for extra strength while hilt openings are kept small. The interior grip space will accommodate a large heavily padded glove. This hilt may be ordered mounted on either the straight or curved versions of our long blades. It is also available on our Alehouse dagger blade.
