Our Red Dragon Combat “Hand and a Half Sword” is designed to replicate a 13th century longsword. The broad blade is designed for slashing and the long point of balance gives this sword a lot of cutting power. The 2mm edge makes this sword useable for HEMA (drilling not sparring) and stage combat. These thick edges make the sword heavier in the hand, but provider a much higher level of durability and safety than 1mm edged blades. The rounded tip adds further safety.

Excellent value swordReview by Neil

I bought mine at the beginning of he year and have been using it for HEMA practice drills since and held off submitting a review until now. It has held up very well - very little if any notching to the edge of the blade and pommel and handle are still nice and tight, In two handed mode it is very good, the forwards weighting is hardly noticeable. In single handed mode though the forward weight isquite noticeable. I am considering adding weight disks to the pommel to bring the weight back to a more manageable position. Overall a minor issue though - the sword is great value for money. (Posted on 17/08/2019)

Got my Red Dragon Hand-and-a-Half Sword recently and it's all round a great purchase.
My biggest issue with the sword is that the pommel need to be bigger to off set the high point of balance. Otherwise the sword handles fairly well in two hands considering. One handed it does feel heavy on the recovery.

I've been doing Re-enactments for 13 years and this for the money is a great beginners sword.
