The longsword, often referred to as the "bastard sword" during the late medieval and Renaissance periods, is a symbol of European martial prowess. Widely utilized from the 13th to the 17th centuries, its peak of popularity lay between 1350 and 1550. This particular blade, bearing a full length of 45 inches, is reminiscent of those wielded by knights and warriors of old.


  • Blade: Crafted from high-carbon 1095 steel, renowned for its sharpness retention and impressive hardness of 56-58 HRC.
  • Handle: An elegant combination of wood and Damascus steel bolsters.
  • Overall Length: 45 inches, with a blade length of 37 inches and handle length of 8 inches.
  • Sheath: Handmade from genuine leather, ensuring durability and a classic look.

Highlight on 1095 Steel

Championed as one of the premier materials for sword-making, 1095 steel boasts a carbon content of 0.95%. This surpasses the 0.45% found in the more common 1045 steel, delivering a blade that’s notably hard. However, 1095's challenge is its natural rigidity which can make it prone to brittleness. To counteract this, our longsword undergoes a clay tempering process. By strategically applying and insulating areas of the blade, except the edge, with clay during quenching, we achieve a blade that's not only sharp but also flexible. The outcome is a sword optimized for both strength and resilience.

Quick Summary

Longsword/Bastard Sword: A 45" masterpiece made of high-carbon 1095 steel, enhanced with clay tempering.

A fantastic sword for a fantastic prize. I can’t tell you how happy I am with my new sword. I have it hanging on my wall and a smile appears on my face whenever my gaze falls on it. Amazingly crafted, the sword is beautiful to look at and it’s both light in weight yet very and I mean very sturdy in how it feels to handle. I’ve already spread the word among my friends and other sword lovers about this website and their amazing products
