  • Classic Longsword

    1 Review(s)

    The term "long sword" designates a sword that is longer than a one handed sword: approximately 37 cm or longer. A long sword was primarily wielded using two hands, but thanks to the comparatively light weight of this classic long sword, one handed techniques are also possible.

    Its double-edged blade has three fullers, but the two outer ones only run the length of the ricasso. The ricasso itself is large enough for your second hand to reach over the crossguard with langet to grasp it. This hold significantly increases the pressure behind thrust techniques. The wooden grip is wrapped in leather, and both the pear-shaped pommel and the crossguard are made of steel. Our classic long sword comes with a leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

  • Classic Medieval Sword

    1 Review(s)

    A transition from the Viking sword to the classic medieval sword, our medieval sword is probably Oakeshott type X. Swords like this one were very popular for centuries.

    The double-edged, hardly tapered blade has a long, relatively wide fuller which makes it balance very well. The curved, flared crossguard provides lots of protection for your hand. Thanks to its leather covering, the grip is comfortable to grasp. The wheel pommel is riveted. Our classic medieval sword comes with a scabbard.
