While glancing through the book, The Medieval Soldier, we ran across a hand-and-a-half sword that really caught our eye. The hand-and-a-half was quite popular during the Middle Ages. It was light enough to be used with one hand, with maybe a small buckler in the other, or you could grip it with both hands, thereby delivering a much stronger cut or thrust. The high carbon steel blade has steel guard and pommel, with a wood grip covered in leather.
Scabbard has steel mounts and is made from high grade leather. Blade material: 1 065/1095 High Carbon Steel. Full Tang, Razor Sharp Edge. Weight W/O Scabbard: 2 lbs 8 oz.
