Description

Despite having several names - War Sword Great Sword Long Sword and even Two-Hand Sword - and causing some confusion among collectors the long sword was quite a popular weapon. Its great length gave it both reach and power since the length increased the velocity substantially. However with the addition of the long ricasso the sword became even more formidable. The ricasso allowed the sword to be gripped past the guard thus shortening the sword and allowing it to be used as short spear. This made a thrust more solid since the blade is held securely at two separate points. Our version of this sword is as formidable weapon as the originals. The blade is high carbon steel tempered to a tough spring the grip is ridged wood wrapped with leather and the pommel and guard are steel. Comes complete with leather scabbard. This is an interesting sword type that belongs in all collections of swords. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts... Scabbard included. #500794 Overall-48"Blade-38"long 1 7/8"wide 3/16"thick Wt-3 lbs.

If you choose to add the sharpening service please be aware that there is a delay in shipping usually no more than a week. There will be no return on this or any other sharpened items unless there is a manufacturing defect.









Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
