Easy to make and highly effective in use, it is not hard to see why swords of the cruciform shape were a mainstay of many early medieval armies. This Cruciform Bastard Sword echoes the shape in a larger size, for warriors who prefer a larger sword. Even still with its larger size, though, this weapon remains a traditional hand and a half sword, one that can easily be wielded with one or two hands, depending on the warriors need. The sword features a fine steel blade of hybrid design, featuring a wide waist and a matched wide point. A half-length fuller runs down the blades length to help reduce its weight, while the diamond cross-section along the lower half ensures that the blade is rigid and strong, too. The straight guard and quillons offer a good defense and are made from cast steel, while the leather and wire-wrapped grip offers a long enough hold for one or two hands. The spherical pommel is grooved and lightly decorated, and it accents the general look of this impressive blade. Included with the sword is a matched leather-wrapped, wood scabbard, for ease of carrying and keeping. For the modern warrior seeking medieval arms, this Cruciform Bastard Sword is an excellent choice, one that recreates the traditional shape of an old-world weapon, in a size to suit a more modern day warrior.
This sword comes in two types. The regular version is tempered and hardened and features traditional shaping, making it a great choice for display or carrying to complete your look. The Light Combat version is tempered and hardened with thick edges and a rounded tip, making it suitable for light use in sparring and reenactment.
