Did you know?

Often a knights sword would only be sharpened on one side. The process of sharpening involves removing small amounts of steel to achieve a fine edge so to preserve the life of a sword they would only use one edge. It is possible that the non-sharpened thicker edge could have been used to block sword blows or even for strikes against armor, saving the sharpened sharp edge for softer targets.
