The sidesword (also known as  spada da lato) is a single-handed sword used in the 16th century in Europe and more particularly in Italy


It is an evolution of the medieval shortsword whose blade lengthens and becomes thinner and which will later evolve into the rapier.


It was particularly present in Italy and more precisely studied in the region of Bologna, of which we have manuscripts of masters such as Antonio Manciolino, Vincentio Saviolo or Achille Marozzo.


This model forged by Kvetun armory is perfect for studying this Bolognese tradition and will satisfy any beginner or experienced HEMA practitioner.
