Heralded as a paragon of European warfare, the longsword, also known as the long sword or long-sword, is a compelling blend of balance and strength. Boasting a cruciform hilt and a straight double-edged blade designed for two-handed use, this sword was a symbol of power during the late medieval and Renaissance periods, approximately from 1350 to 1550. Its presence is even traced back to the 13th century and as far forward as the 17th century. The longsword often earns the alternate moniker, the 'bastard sword', representing its distinctive design during the late medieval and Renaissance period. Our version of this iconic sword is designed to emulate the classic bastard swords from the late 13th century, measuring 29" in length.
440 Stainless Steel Blade
The blade of this longsword is crafted from 440 stainless steel, a high-carbon steel known for its superior strength, sharpness, and edge retention. Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and requires minimal maintenance, making it an excellent choice for a practical, decorative sword. 440 stainless steel is a top-tier sword material, often used in high-quality knives and cutlery. It's incredibly strong, and when polished, it takes on a beautiful, mirror-like finish that adds to the aesthetic appeal of the sword.
