This 15th Century Hand and a Half Sword with Scabbard is an eminently practical warriors sword with a hardy make and a versatile design, making it a great choice for the warrior who plans to wield their sword in a variety of ways. After all, it is this advantage that makes hand and a half swords, or bastard swords, so unique. This historic sword has a wide blade with a fine taper great for dealing out quick cuts, heavy slashes, crushing chops, and even armour-piercing thrusts. The moderate blade length gives it reach, while good balance lets warriors wield it one- or two-handed. The leather-wrapped wood grip suits one or two hands just as nicely, so this knight sword is great for both two-handed and sword-and-shield fighting styles. The blade is dual hardened, forged out of 5160 high carbon steel, and features a fuller to help with its weight. The guard, composed of two thick, curved quillons, offers good defense for the hands and a solid striking point if need-be. A scent stopper pommel counterbalances the blade and makes for an effective bludgeon. This steel sword also features a full-length tang peened to the pommel for stability and strength. A wooden, leather-wrapped scabbard comes with this sword, great for keeping the blade safe and secure when not in use. The scabbard does not come with a sword belt, but can be attached to your own favorite sword belt or baldric for easy carrying. Attractive and practical, this 15th Century Hand and a Half Sword with Scabbard is straight to the point with its design, making it a fine weapon for any swordsman to own, either to wield in battle, train with on the practice field, or display at home.
