Description

A classic style Hand-and-a-Half also known as a Bastard Sword. A no nonsense sword with a little artistic flare in the crossguard construction. This sword is a solid, functional, heavy cutter. Fully sharpened, with a allen nut pommel construction. Designed for the practice target cutter, the allen key nut allows for simple tightening of the entire hilt construction as it gets loose from repeated cutting. A trusty sword for the chivalrous heart.

Why is a Bastard Sword called a Bastard Sword? The word bastard comes from the French word “bâtarde”. This word in France used much more liberally. It can also mean - “something irregular, inferior, spurious, unusual” or “of abnormal or irregular shape or size; of unusual make or proportions”. While the Bastard Sword is definitely not inferior, being one of the most popular swords of the middle ages. Its proportions, neither a true two-handed sword, nor a single handed sword leave it as being uncategorised, lending to the name “Bastard”.
