A hand and a half sword of this size is something to be respected, and maybe even feared. The Twisted Hilt Bastard Sword is an impressively sized weapon that, in its prime, would have been a solid offense and defense for any warrior to wield. This sword is distinctive somewhat in its design, thanks to a more elaborate and thought-out hilt design, which enhances the swords defensive characteristics, without detracting from the heavy blades powerful impact. The sword features a wide, powerful blade with a gentle taper and a piercing point. The fine steel blade is set with a fuller, as well, to help reduce its weight, preserving the swords balance. The unique guard features upturned quillons and a round, twisted guard, more reminiscent of later-age swords that were both effective and artistically appealing. The guard and pommel are both cast, blackened steel, while the wood grip and pommel both feature a twisted, spiral pattern for added grip and stylized appeal. Unique in its look, this Twisted Hilt Bastard Sword is an immediate eye-catcher, one that will impress all who see it, whether they are glimpsing it in your hand in a melee, at your side at a fair, or in your home on the wall.
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.
