Did you know?

Early period single hand medieval swords are generally “tip heavy”. At the time when these swords were carried, they were facing opponents dressed in suits of chain, maille armor or chain mail. They would also be using a shield for defense. Having a tip heavy sword made it easier to deliver powerful blows which wouldn't slice the chainmaille but deliver severe impact damage to the target behind it. With luck you may also be able to knock their shield free. read some more?
