Classifying swords can be a bit tricky, particularly when the sword in question has been designed to meet criteria from several different classes. This blade would most likely fit into the Type XVIIIa of Ewart Oakeshott's classification system (for those of you who follow that sort of thing).

The Warspike cobines the length of a long arming sword, the hilt of a small hand-and-a-half sword, and just a hint of a "tuck" thrusting blade.

Although the hilt of this sword would just allow for hand-and-a-half work (complete with the pear-pommel that most bastard swords have), this sword is a little shorter than most norrmal bastard swords. It also lacks any sort of ricasso, which is another common trait for bastard swords. The blade is clearly meant for both slashing and thrusting, although slashing was the primary intended use.

Whatever classification is usedone thing is certain, it's a fantastic sword to hold and swing. The Type 4 cross is a very standard and elegant cross of the middle-ages and the acute angle of the blade would make it especially lethal for downed opponents: the blade would slide through a visor or into the gaps of armor with ease.

The Warspike has a hand-forged, High-carbon steel blade, steel cross and pommel, and a hand stitched leather-wrapped wood hilt. This blade would be acceptable for light sparring.

Wonderful Blade
I think this blade is perfect for someone looking for a decent sized bastard sword. It has a decent length and a full tang. A solid grip and cross-guard as well. After receiving this item and seeing the quality of the blade I definitely will be buying from strongblade again!

Groomsmen Gifts Very Pleased
I recently purchased a number of engraved swords from your website as groomsmen gifts for my wedding. I normally don't write companies back unless there is a problem with the purchase, but I was so pleased with the quality, price and customer service that I made an exception in this case. The swords were of excellent quality and the engravings were exactly as I had envisioned them. The price for these swords was amazing, considering that they were hand-forged high-carbon steel. It was low enough that I was at first fearful that it may have been a scam, but when they arrived, it was clear that you guys are exactly as advertised. You guys really went the extra mile to ensure that I would be pleased with my purchase, and I can safely say that my choice of companies for future sword purchases will be a no-brainer.
