The Longford has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel that has been dual-tempered - It has a softer, shock absorbing core of 48-50 HRC and harder blade edges of 60 HRC. By dual-tempering the sword the blade can have a softer core that can flex with the strike or in the parry and a harder edge resists dulling, aiding to keep the blade keen.

The crossguard and pommel are of steel and the wooden grip is overlaid with brown leather. Its accompanying scabbard is of wood overlaid with brown leather. It has a steel chape on its tip.

A rich documentation of the use of the longsword has survived in late medieval and Renaissance fight school manuscripts from Germany and Italy. From these manuscripts it is clear that the longsword was a quick and versatile weapon in skilled hands. Many advanced techniques are demonstrated; these include parry-and-counter maneuvers, grappling, disarming and even striking with the hilt and pommel. A good swordsman used all of his sword as a weapon as surprise and technique with the longsword won the day over brute strength. A particularly interesting technique was half-swording; gripping the blade with one hand and using the sword in a pick or spear like fashion to penetrate an armored defense at its weak points. It also allows the longswordsman to use his weapon in very close and tight fighting where maneuverability may be restricted.
