    Despite having several names; War Sword, Great Sword, Long Sword and even Two-Hand Sword (thus causing some confusion among collectors), the large sword was quite a popular weapon. This sword has great length giving it both reach and power. As the length increased the velocity increased 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 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. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Scabbard included. Can be sharpened for additional fee.

    • Blade: 38" long, 1-7/8" wide, 3/16" thick

    A nice replica; a nice sword; nicely made; correctly configured; reveals the essence of this type of weapon and why they were useful. It is fast and able to deliver a very heavy blow, yet quite favorably disposed to quick recovery. Joe B
