Long Swords

Long swords were weapons used mainly during the middle and late Medieval period. Long swords are both an offensive and defensive weapon and can be used for parries and deflections, as well as, cuts and thrusts. Cuts with a long sword are delivered either as slices or as extremely powerful chopping blows. Although it is primarily used with two hands, a long sword is still capable of being wielded with a single hand, allowing the off hand to be used for grappling, punching, and grabbing an opponent or his sword. Advances in armor technology toward the end of the Medieval period, specifically plate armor, decreased the protective need for a shield and thus freed up the off hand. Because of this, special techniques called half-swording were developed. Half-swording generally involves holding the blade of the sword in the second hand, which enables greater point control and increased thrusting power. This in turn enables the long sword to puncture heavy armor and stab into the joints and gaps between plates. Long swords were also known as war swords of the 14th and 15thcenturies. Typically 4'-4.5' long and weight between3-4 lbs, the long sword was designed with a simple cruciform hilt and a straight blade that was double-edged. The long sword was reserved as a battle sword(typically hung from the saddle as opposed to be worn on the belt) and not used in friendly joust competitions. Long swords were larger versions of typical one-handed swords, except with stouter blades. They were "longer swords", as opposed to single-hand swords, or just "swords". In combat, knights developed an offensive move involving the hitting of an opponent repeatedly with the butt of his long sword (the "pummel", back of the handle), which is where we get the term, "to pummel someone." Our Long swords can be used for display or for battle re-enactments, each reproduction is created to the specifications of the original. The dimensions and weight are accurate on every piece so you get a medieval weapon that is actually balanced and fun to hold instead of just pretty to look at. Medieval times were sometimes brutal, sometimes romantic, but always a source of intrigue. Medieval Collectibles invites you to share in the experience of an era past with our collection of Long swords. All our Long Swords are expertly hand-crafted and authentic replicas! You can display them in your office, home or for Medieval Reenactments.
