This longsword would look right at home in the gauntlets of the late Medieval or early Renaissance warrior; the blade has a diamond cross-section - a favored style at the time that imparts some stiffness into the blade. This added stiffness aids in delivering a more forceful and piercing thrust. Though this sword has a form well-suited to the thrust, there is ample width on the blade to deliver harrowing chops and cuts.

This sword is an agile performer and unlike many such swords it manages to still feel robust and solid in the hand, not flighty or whippy. The weight and balance of the sword allow it to be used ably with a single hand by a user of above-average strength - but the blade certainly comes into better form with the use of two hands.
