This blunt reconstruction of a late medieval sword is forged by hands. The straight, twisted guard and the pommel are made of heat-treated malleable cast iron. The spring-steel blade is oil-tempered up to 48-50° Rockwell, forged to the hilt and screwed with the pommel. The wooden gip is leather covered. The blade has got a distinctive fuller which reaches almost to the middle of the blade and which offers both flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of this one-and-a-half medieval sword are blunt and the tip is rounded for safety. The sword comes with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard with metal fittings.
A bastard sword, also called just long sword is a late medieval and Renaissance sword with a long and straight double-edge blade which usually was wielded with one-and-a-half respectively two hands.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
