The 2 Port Cross hilt is one of the earliest complex hilts. It consists of a small port at the arms and another port connecting to the root of both quillons. The inner guard was commonly a cross, but can also be found as a two- or three-bar sweep later in history.
At the beginning of the 16th century, this hilt is most often found with a blade more suited to cutting, but as time progressed a narrower, more rapier like blade was seen on this hilt.
Ours comes standard with a sidesword (DA4SS) blade, wooden handle and your choice of pommel.
