Embark on a journey through time and witness the epitome of European martial craftsmanship – the longsword. Often referred to as the "long sword" or "long-sword," this weapon is distinguished by its cruciform hilt, straight double-edged blade, and the ability to be wielded with two hands. It's not just a weapon; it's a piece of history, defining the late medieval and Renaissance eras, tracing its lineage back from the 13th century, extending its influence until the 17th.

During the prime years of its use, it was colloquially termed the "bastard sword." A true longsword, by definition, extends between 33 to 43 inches. The piece in focus measures a respectable 36 inches, sporting a 30-inch blade complemented by a 6-inch handle, crafted from wood and adorned with leather wrapping. Adding to its grandeur are the Damascus steel bolsters, culminating in a blend of beauty and brutality. For protection and ease of carrying, it comes encased in a handmade leather sheath.

Blade Craftsmanship: An Art of Steel

What sets this sword apart is the exquisite blade, forged from the revered Pattern welded Damascus steel. Renowned for its durability and unique visual appeal, this type of steel is created by heat treating folded carbon steel. The process is meticulous: starting with 11 distinct pieces of steel, folded in succession, it results in a staggering 352 layers. With a Rockwell hardness rating that flits between 55 and 56 HRC, it strikes a fine balance between rigidity and durability.

The essence of high carbon Damascus steel lies in the integration of high carbon layers. The choice for this blade is the 1095 steel, esteemed for its carbon content. The outcome? A blade robust enough to retain its sharpness, yet flexible to resist the shocks of combat.
