Immerse yourself in the grandeur of historical warfare with our meticulously crafted Longsword. Dominating European battlefields from the late medieval to the Renaissance periods (roughly 1350-1550), this emblematic weapon, also referred to as the Bastard Sword, stands as a testament to the evolution of European martial arts.
Our longsword, measuring an impressive 48", is characterized by a straight, double-edged blade, and a cruciform hilt designed for two-handed grip. The defining features extend from a robust blade length of 33"-48", lending it both reach and momentum in the hands of a seasoned warrior. Its handle, made of wood, is elegantly wrapped in leather, complementing the Damascus steel bolsters and culminating in a time-honored aesthetic appeal. Each sword comes complete with a handmade leather sheath for protection and easy transport.
Blade Craftsmanship: Experience unparalleled craftsmanship with our blade, forged from pattern-welded Damascus steel. This blade undergoes a labor-intensive process, involving the folding of 11 pieces of steel five times to produce a staggering 352 layers. This meticulous process results in a blade combining hardness and durability, reflected in its Rockwell hardness rating of 56-58 HRC.
High carbon Damascus steel forms the blade's backbone, with the inclusion of layers of 1095 steel - the highest carbon content steel used in sword crafting. This unique blend ensures our longsword retains a sharp, resilient edge capable of withstanding the rigors of substantial impact - a testament to the perfect fusion of strength, flexibility, and sharpness.

I won't lie I had my doubts at first but this sword is solid for the price. Before buying I emailed some questions which were replied to very quickly and professionally, about the tang of the sword and once explained It crossed my mind I might be getting a cheap replica (again) also considering the price at which it would show up at my door. To my surprise I'm pulling a well preserved beautiful Damascus steel blade out of it's packaging, a solid piece of functional art to say the least. I look forward to completing the collection I have in mind and being able to do so without breaking the bank.
