Versatility is always a warrior’s asset, and of all medieval swords few embody it as well as the ‘’Bastard Sword’’. Too short to be a dedicated two-handed sword, yet longer than the single-hand sword, the bastard ‘’hand and a half’’ swords give the warrior the option for single or double handed use. Balanced well enough for one hand, with two the sword becomes a truly effective slash and thrust sword. An elongated pommel acts as an extended grip for leverage and the blade is wide enough midway to allow for a well-gripped ‘’half-sword’’ thrust technique.First appearing in the late 13th century, hand and a half swords reached an apex of popularity in the 15th and 16th centuries and were particularly favored in Switzerland and the German principalities.

This Bastard Sword, by Darksword Armory, has a blade made from 5160 High Carbon Steel tempered to a Rockwell Hardness of 53. The blade tang is fitted though a mild steel crossguard and pommel and peened for strength. The wooden grip is tightly wrapped and sewn over with brown leather. It comes with a matching wood-core scabbard covered in form-fitting brown leather and integrated sword belt.
