Description of the Product

Despite having several names - War Sword, Great Sword, Long Sword, Hand-And-A-Half Sword and even Two-Hand Sword - and causing some confusion among collectors, the large sword was quite a popular weapon. Its great length gave it both reach and power, since the length increased the velocity substantially. However, with the addition of the long ricasso, the sword became even more formidable. The ricasso allowed the sword to be gripped past the guard, thus shortening the sword and allowing it to be used as a short spear. This made a thrust more solid since the blade is held securely at two separate points. Our version of this sword is as formidable weapon as the originals. The blade is high carbon steel, tempered to a tough spring, the grip is ridged wood, wrapped with leather, and the pommel and guard are steel. Comes complete with leather scabbard. This is an interesting sword type that belongs in all collections of swords.
