Longsword 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.  To be defined as a longsword sword, the sword must be between 33"-43".  This bastard sword measures 36".  The blade is 30" and the handle is 6". The handle is wood wrapped in leather with Damascus steel bolsters.  It is finished with a handmade leather sheath.

Blade Materials

The 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.  The handle is wood with brass bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.
