With its longer grip and extended pommel, the longsword made room for a fighter’s second hand in a variety of grips, giving speed and versatility to the weapon while losing option for shield. This loss was often counterbalanced by improved armor and the defensive parrying of the longsword itself. Longswords were also popular on horseback, where their longer reach was useful. Though, largely obsolete by the 16th century, the longsword persisted as a weapon for duels and sporting competition. Its techniques and form would evolve into the large Renaissance two-handed swords and zweihanders.

This sword, made by Fabri Armorum, is hand-made in the Czech Republic. It is one of Fabri Armorum’s ‘’Training’’ swords – thus the detailing of the leather is less refined then the standard ‘’show’’ models. The guard and pommel are also left with a rough, forged finish. The blade is made from carbon spring steel (type 14260.7). The blade is welded to the pommel for strength with a decorative rivet on top. The guard and pommel are of steel and the grip is wood with leather glued over top. Made for heavy duty blade-on-blade combat, the sword is guaranteed for two years by the manufacturer under normal stage/sport combat conditions.
