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 would say this is NOT intended to be a display sword but rather a cutting sword, The edge is sharpened but not to a fine edge so you would have to sharpen it further yourself if you intend to cut plastic bottles or even tatami mats but I would definitely say it would hold it's own if you ever had to use it in anger, It's rather heavy but you get a lot of blade for the weight, What I got was not exactly as pictured and I would say it seems better, the guard has been rounded off more and the scabbard didn't have the knob on it (Not entirely sure what to call it). The scabbard is loose and does not hold the blade well so you have to be careful if you mount this on the wall, You will likely have to leave the scabbard off or mount it horizontally, The pommel IS threaded and may come loose during use so make sure you tighten it.
The leather on the scabbard and the handle are good quality and has double stitching.
I rate it a 10/10 mainly because of the affordable price, From what I understand you pretty much get an unbranded Windlass Steelcrafts sword.
It handles a bit more sluggishly because of it's weight (expected for a sword this size) but you get a lot of reach and the balance seems to be decent with the center of balance being about 6 inches from the guard, It should be used in much the way a longsword should be used (which it arguably is).
The Construction is solid with no rattling in the guard or blade, The pommel is loose but you could fix it with a drop of loctite if desired (not recommended if you do not wish to take it apart again and certainly do not use the red variety, It's permanent!).
The only major hit I give this is the scabbard not fitting tightly but this may be fixed but overall for the price this is a great deal on a hand and a half/bastard sword/long sword/arming sword.
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.
