100% Cuts of Useful Information
When Strongblade refers to a "Battle Sword
," we are referring to most European medieval swords
with blades longer than 35” or so. These type of swords included hand-and-a-half swords
(sometimes refered to as Bastard Swords
) and the big two-handed swords
. Real battle swords
had blades well in excess of this, and, in fact, a 35" sword was considered a bit skimpy for fighting skirmishes. But for home use and light sparring, a 36" blade is fairly long.
