Longsword Description

The longsword, also known as long sword or long-sword, is a type of European sword characterized by a cruciform hilt with a two handed with a straight double-edged blade.  The longsword was prevalent during the late medieval and Renaissance periods (approximately 1350 to 1550), with early and late use reaching the 13th and 17th centuries.  The term bastard sword is used to identify the longsword during the late medieval and Renaissance period.  To be defined as a longsword sword, the sword must be between 33"-45".  This longsword measures 38".  The handle is wood wrapped in leather with Damascus steel bolsters.  It is finished with a handmade leather sheath.

Blade Materials

The longsword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel scimitar is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is wood wrapped in leather with Damascus steel bolsters. It comes with a leather sheath.

Nice and sturdy longsword

Sharp on arrival and well greased, I was amazed by this instrument at first sight. The pommel is a little bigger than I expected which is a nice feature unexpected. The welding of the cruciform guard is impressive and proper. The blade has a nice edge and a sharp, pointy tip (which is good). Overall the sword is a bit on the heavier side for its size, but proper handling will ensure a more effective function at chopping (e.g. wood).

Thank you for the care and detail put into the craftsmanship, this is most certainly the best sword I have bought from you guys.
