Dive deep into European heritage with our expertly crafted longsword, synonymous with power and elegance. The longsword, alternatively referred to as the long sword or long-sword, distinguishes itself with its cruciform hilt, straight double-edged blade, and a grip fashioned for two-handed use.

Historical Relevance

Predominantly gracing the landscapes of late medieval and Renaissance Europe (from around 1350 to 1550), its historical traces can be found as early as the 13th century and as late as the 17th century. Renowned as the 'bastard sword' during the zenith of the medieval and Renaissance era, its defining characteristic remains its size, typically ranging between 33" and 43". Our meticulously designed bastard sword spans 36", with a 30" blade and a 6" handle.


  • Craftsmanship: The handle, constructed from wood and encased in leather, is adorned with Damascus steel bolsters, amplifying its aesthetic appeal. Moreover, it is paired with a handmade leather sheath, ensuring its protection.

  • High Carbon 1095 Steel: Esteemed for its remarkable carbon content of .95%, 1095 steel stands at the pinnacle of sword-making materials. In contrast, the frequently used 1045 steel only boasts a .45% carbon composition. Celebrated for its unparalleled edge retention and hardness, 1095 steel typically has a Rockwell hardness ranging between 56-58 HRC. Its only drawback is its limited flexibility.

  • Clay Tempering Technique: To enhance the inherent rigidity of 1095 steel, we employ clay tempering. Thick clay layers are painted onto the blade, insulating certain sections. During quenching, this differential cooling technique ensures the blade's edge remains sharp and hard, while the body gains flexibility. This delicate balance between strength and flexibility results in a blade of supreme quality.

It just arrived today and I only ordered it about a week and a half ago. Even with 4th of July weekend, it arrived in lightning speed. I love it. I was surprised at the quality of the sheath - beautifully sleek and handcrafted. The sword is absolutely beautiful. Brian helped me pick it out and helped me select the best quality sword. I was also offered a $10.00 discount off of any order and I decided to take a chance. I am so glad that I did. It is strong yet flexible and weighted very well. It feels very balanced. I am ready to go to war!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thank you Battling Blades & especially Brian. You guys are the best.

Great sword but a bit slow

The sword is amazing but they had to make it after I ordered it so it took a while. They did notify me of the time needed so I am happy.


I like it! It came super fast and they were really nice at answering my questions.
