The Principe has the more elaborate hilt stylings that are a hallmark of many late Medieval and early Renaissance Italian swords. While more lavish in character, the Principe is no less a weapon than the simpler Alexandria sword. This sword by Albion Armorers, has a hand ground and sharpened blade of high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is of stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.
