Details

Despite having several names - War Sword, Great Sword, Long Sword and even Two-Hand Sword (causing some confusion among collectors) - the large sword was a popular weapon. This sword has great length giving it both reach and power. As the length increased the velocity increased 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.

Windlass Steelcraft's version of this sword is as formidable weapon as the originals. The Sword of Roven has a high carbon steel blade 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 sword collections. Scabbard included. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
