The Bastard Sword

Also known as the hand and a half sword, the bastard sword is the generic name for a large number of straight bladed European swords used with either one hand or two. They were used in virtually all Western European countries after 1000 AD, up until well into the 1500s. The bastard sword is the “bastard” version of a long sword and two-handed sword, using properties of both.
