You would be hard pressed to think of a more versatile or effective sword than the “Bastard” or “Hand-and-a-Half Sword” offered here. For a sword of this size it’s amazingly light and fast and tips the scales at approximately 3 lbs. Its 33 1/2″ long blade is quite wide so it can produce deep shearing type cuts yet pointed enough to be effective in a thrusting attack. Its long handle is suitable for both a one or two handed grip and is fashioned out of wood covered in black leather. To balance the long blade it has a capped butt with a beautiful “scent stopper” pommel which can be a lethal weapon in its own right.
Every Hand-and-a-Half Sword reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials and comes fully sharpened and ready for battle! To safely house the blade included is a very attractive scabbard made of wood covered with black leather and steel throat and chape.
