The 15th century longsword, often called a hand-and-half, saw a great deal of service as a weapon of war, but was also employed a great deal as a civilian weapon of self- defense. Coupled with a dagger, the longsword was an excellent defense against robbers, thieves, footpads, assassins and even some of the robber bands that might roam the countryside. A good serviceable point allowed it to be used for thrusting, and a medium weight allowed it to be used easily and carried with equal ease. This weight also allowed it to be used with one hand with a dagger in the other. But when needed, the longsword could be gripped with both hands for a very powerful cut. Pommel and guard are steel. Grip is wood wrapped with leather and wire. A beautiful and very functional sword. The 15th Century Longsword is made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

"The blade isn't "whippy" considering the length, and the scabbard fits well because of the ricasso. Very nice."

"he seems to like it...but it was a gift so he may be just saying that...but i think he really does like it. I am not sure how to rate it though, as I have no knowledge about these things ;-)"
