Did you know?

The medieval “Bastard Sword” is named a bastard because it doesn't belong to a single family of swords. The medieval bastard sword is not a single hand or a two handed sword. It's handle is long enough that it could be used with two hands to deliver a powerful blow but it is also light enough and short enough to be wielded with a single hand.
