Longswords took precedence over single-handed swords on the battlefield in the latter part of the Medieval Era and Renaissance. Though single-hand swords were still popular for cavalry and for personal defense. Armor had advanced to the point that warriors could confidently dispose of their shields and focus on offensive reach and power. Now well-armored warriors could have both hands free for a fast, strong weapon.

The elongated handle allows for more leverage than a single handed sword, and it was common to grip the blade with gauntlets to control the tip and thrust the sword into weak points in the armor. Fighting manuals of the time even show techniques whereby the sword is gripped by the blade and the crossguard and pommel used as a weapon. Many, such as this example, had the elaborate quillons for protection and entrapment and elongated pommels that were both an extension to the grip, as well as a counterbalance.

This Cold Steel Italian Longsword is from their Man-At-Arms collection. The sharp 1055 High carbon steel blade is blued for a dark, protective finish and the hilt of steel is blued to match. The grip wrapped in black leather and the blade tang is screwed into place with a pommel nut. Comes with a black leather scabbard with a blackened metal chape and throat.
