Hand and a half swords and 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.

Made in the Czech Republic, this hand-and-a-half sword has a high carbon steel blade. Meant for stage combat, the edges are left completely blunt. The blade is peened and welded to the pommel for strength and the crossguard is also welded into place. The top two-thirds of the grip is wrapped in soft black leather.


The brown leather grip option may vary in its shade of brown; from very light brown to very dark brown
