A bastard sword, also called just long sword is a late medieval and Renaissance sword with a long and straight double-edge blade which usually was wielded with one-and-a-half respectively two hands.
This reconstruction of a late medieval sword is forged by hands. The straight, twisted guard and the pommel are made of iron. The spring-steel blade is forged to the hilt and screwed with the pommel. The wooden gip is leather covered. The blade has got a distinctive fuller which reaches almost to the middle of the blade and which offers both flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of the blades are not sharpened.
The sword comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard with metal fittings.
