Often used with a shield, historical shorts swords were the classic weapon of the medieval knight prior to the development of the longsword and bastard sword. These war swords were designed to shear through chainmail and armor rather than serving as cut and thrust weapons. During the 14th century, the short sword would frequently be used as a backup weapon, hanging from the knights belt rather than the saddle like a longsword. Medieval short swords often featured cruciform shapes and functioned as single-handed swords.
