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.
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.

My product arrived in a good time frame and also the quality was beautiful and was also sharp. I would go as far as to say that it has better quality than one of my swords that was hand crafted from Toledo, Spain.
I got this sword for my teenage son’s birthday. He loved it, and was pleased I didn’t buy his sword through Amazon. Great quality, fast shipping.
I'll be honest, I wasn't entirely sure of its quality when I got it, considering the price, however when it arrived, I was stunned. Absolutely amazing Craftsmanship and design. Absolutely would recommend to anyone.
