Introducing the White Longsword/Bastard Sword, an iconic weapon inspired by the historic swords of Europe, characterized by its cruciform hilt and straight double-edged blade. Crafted for the warrior, this sword is a faithful recreation of the weapons wielded during the late medieval and Renaissance periods, roughly from 1350 to 1550, though historical traces suggest usage from the 13th century and extending into the 17th century.
This longsword, also known as a 'bastard sword,' embodies an era where a sword was a knight's best friend. Its design incorporates the ability to switch between one-handed and two-handed grips, giving it the versatility to be used with or without a shield. The longsword's various names, including spadone, espadon, zweyhandler, and flamberge, reflect its widespread use across different regions, as well as its unique cross-sectional blade design.
Particularly noteworthy is the sword's interchangeability as a bastard sword, renowned for its 'hand and a half' design. This label emerged from its unique adaptability for one or two-handed wielding, marking it as a truly flexible weapon in combat. This functionally identical longsword's versatility made it an essential asset in the battlefield.

This sword was purchased for a theater production. It was of excellent quality and was at an incredible price. Would definitely look to Battling Blades if I need more swords!
Looks great, well made. Not sharp (as it says on the description) but good craftsmanship.
Exactly what I was looking for. High quality at a great price. Thank you!
