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. Although the fullered blade was sharply pointed to penetrate joints in armour or to split mail links, it was also wide enough to deliver a cut. 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.

I took a few practice swings at the box it came in. Look at the picture for results. Its not crazy sharp, but its sharp enough. I'll probably get a professional sharpener to hone me a good edge on there eventually.
The wife was turned on and even a bit fearful as I swung my weapon around the house. I could feel ancient barbarian instincts stirring deep within as I swung the blade. Its a lot longer than I thought it would be and surprisingly sturdy. Very well balanced, I'm having a lot of fun with it already. It held up to attacking the box and a few small branches.So far so good.
One hell of a first sword to buy. I did some research on buying a REAL sword, and I think it paid off. Excellent value btw. I will update if something terrible happens to it (like it breaks), so if no update, assume this mighty blade still plunders!
*Edit* Sept 29 - The blade has held up well. A professional sharpener put an edge on it, but he was not impressed with the bevel.
Spray it down with some gun oil or something before you sheathe it. A little rust might appear (which you can buff out) if the blade sits unchecked for a while.
pretty sword an handle
bevel isnt the greatest
sheath is okay but it is clearly held together with glue
( some people said theirs was loose for me it was very tight an took a lot of working to get my sword in an out easily
hammer marks on guard.
balance is top heavy so you can feel the weight.
well they say everything can be taken a part well not mine, i tried for a long while an the pommel hasnt even budged second, the guard has a nail going threw it an the blade peened an polished down ( so no rattle but it cant be removed, under the leather on the hadle i can see a look of two rivets or something holding it in place, so the handle can not be removed, i think my pommel is threaded but has the worlds best glue keeping it from turning.
Everything other than the blade is pretty hokey. The handle and scabbard are done in some synthetic faux-leather which scuffs VERY easily. The pommel, guard, and scabbard hardware seem to be done in a chrome plating which does not look like it'll handle abuse well. I hoped to take them off and mess with stripping them down to raw...steel (? I hope), but while the tang is threaded, everything's epoxied in place. I eventually managed to get the pommel off but I'm not optimistic about getting the grip off without destroying it...which, to be fair, wouldn't be a tragedy.
The scabbard hardware is JUNK. The steel is very thin and only barely attached to the scabbard. It's got a big, annoying knob sticking out, apparently to aid in hanging it from a frog of some sort, but it's not attached well enough to the scabbard to be remotely useful for that function.
The only thing wrong with my sword is a slight bend in the blade, but that can be fixed.
Better than Cold Steel.
This is a hand and a half sword, not an arming sword (broadsword for the dumbs)
