15th Century Longsword15th Century Longsword15th Century Longsword
Circa 1450
The longsword, often called a hand-and-half, saw a great deal of service as a weapon of war, but was also employed a great deal as a civilian weapon of self-defense. Coupled with a dagger, the longsword was an excellent defense against robbers, thieves, footpads, assassins and even some of the robber bands that might roam the countryside. A good serviceable point allowed it to be used for thrusting, and a medium weight allowed it to be used easily and carried with equal ease. This weight also allowed it to be used with one hand with a dagger in the other. But when needed, it could be gripped with both hands for a very powerful cut. This is a beautiful and very functional sword with steel pommel and guard.  The grip is wood wrapped with leather and wire. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Includes scabbard. ($5 additional s/h) Can be sharpened for additional fee.

Delightful sword! Beautiful, sturdy and a thrill in the hand. Cuts like a witch! Belies the reputation that Windlass seems to have acquired on certain sword sites concerning "whippiness." The blade is flexible yet stiff and shows very little distal droop when held horizontally. A true winner that I cannot recommend too highly.
