Exquisite European Longsword: A Fusion of Strength and Elegance

Historical Significance: The longsword, an iconic European weapon, is celebrated for its distinct design, featuring a cruciform hilt and a straight double-edged blade suited for two-handed use. Predominantly used during the late medieval and Renaissance periods (circa 1350 to 1550), its historical reach extends from the 13th to the 17th centuries. Known also as the bastard sword in late medieval and Renaissance contexts, this weapon is a testament to the martial and cultural history of Europe.

Dimensions and Design: Our longsword is a perfect representation of historical accuracy and modern craftsmanship, measuring an impressive 45 inches in total. The blade itself is 37 inches long, complemented by an 8-inch handle. The handle, a harmonious blend of wood wrapped in leather, is further enhanced by Damascus steel bolsters, offering both comfort and aesthetic appeal. The sword is completed with a handmade leather sheath, reflecting the attention to detail in every aspect.

Blade Craftsmanship: Forged from 1095 steel, known for its high carbon content of .95%, this blade exemplifies durability and edge retention. This type of steel is renowned for its hardness, typically ranging between 56 and 58 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale (HRC). Unlike more common high carbon steels like 1045, which contains only .45% carbon, 1095 steel ensures a significantly sharper and longer-lasting edge. However, high carbon content can reduce flexibility, a crucial attribute for sword durability.

Innovative Clay Tempering Technique: To address this, our longsword undergoes a meticulous clay tempering process. Clay is applied to specific parts of the blade, insulating them to cool more slowly during quenching. This process, focusing on the blade's spine while leaving the edge exposed, creates a sword with a razor-sharp edge but increased flexibility elsewhere. This innovative technique ensures the blade is not only incredibly strong but also less prone to breakage upon impact.

  • Handle Material: Wood with Damascus Steel Bolsters

Whether displayed or used in historical reenactments, it stands as a symbol of the skill and artistry that define the era of knights and chivalry.

Very cool sword

Battling Blades has a lot of options, but I really like the asymmetry of this blade and the details on the crossguards. Good weight, great overall quality.
