Hand and a Half Swords

The term Hand and a Half sword arose in the late 19th century as a way to distinguish those medieval swords that could not be accurately categorized as single-handed swords or two-handed swords. Medieval hand and a half swords could be wielded with one or two hands, though they more closely resembled two hand swords than other bastard swords, another term used for similar designs.
