Sword 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. This longsword is 29" long and holds a 6" handle.

 

Blade Materials

The longsword sword is made from pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel 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 with a Rockwell Hardness of 55-56 HRC.  The handle is wood with Damascus steel bolsters.  It is comes with a leather sheath, and has 352 layers.

Great with some flaws

This came and my expectations were high due to the many reviews this got and I was not disappointed! It’s really solid and light, about three pounds, but feels really well made. When I first received it, there are little drips of what I can assume is rust, but can easily be removed with rust remover, metal polish, etc. The blade wasn’t super straight either, but it was pretty impressive for being handmade. The Damascus gives it a beautiful look and it definitely worth the price I paid. Good sword overall!
