Hand & A Half Swords
The longsword (also bastard sword) is a type of European sword designed for two-handed use, current during the late medieval and Renaissance periods, approximately 1350 to 1550 (with early and late use reaching into the 13th and 17th centuries).
Longswords have long cruciform hilts with grips over 10 to 15 cm length (providing room for two hands). Straight double-edged blades are often over 1 m to 1.2 m (40 to 48 inches) length, and weigh typically between 1.2 and 1.8 kg (2.5 to 4 lb), with light specimens just below 1 kg (2.2 lb), and heavy specimens just above 2 kg (4.5 lb).
