One-Handed Swords

One Handed Swords

One handed swords were first developed by the Celts of northern Europe and the British Isles, who fought from horseback. One handed, longer bladed, swords were quickly adopted by the Romans in the form of the Spatha, which were used by their mounted troops. One-handed swords saw use across Europe for cutting through mail and leather armor, and slashing (draw-cutting) for mounted and foot combat. As armor evolved in the high middle ages into complete suites of plate, the blades developed into more effective thrusting weapons, however the sharp edge was not neglected for use on the lightly armored rank and file soldiers.

Two-Handed Swords

Two Handed Swords

Two handed swords were known as war swords in the early Middle Ages, and were used to destroy an opponent’s shield, shear through mail and damage helms. During the high middle age and on into the renaissance they were known as great swords. The blades tended to be slightly longer and even full plate armor could be damaged to the point where the opponent’s movements were greatly impaired. Though large, two handed swords weight was not excessive.
