A hand and a half sword, also known as a bastard sword, is a very well known sword type from the medieval period. Now, with the Hand and a Half Broadsword, you can bring that iconic weapon into your reenactment battle or stage combat. Constructed from carbon steel, this blade is hardened and tempered for an enhanced durability. This longsword also features a fuller, which helps to lighten the blade.

The grip is typical of a hand and a half sword, as is the flattened diamond section blade. This sword also comes with a wooden scabbard with steel and leather mounts and carrying rings. Crafted specifically for reenactment, the Hand and a Half Broadsword is the ideal weapon for a true medieval swordsman.
