Hand-and-a-half Sword with scabbard, Bastard Sword by Hanwei

The term bastard undoubtedly comes from the fact that the sword, because of its design, has no legitimate claim to being classified as either a single-handed or a two-handed weapon. The one-and-a-half-handed sword was a weapon developed for the use of the foot soldier and had become quite common by the early 1500's. The combat styles developed for the hand-and-a-half sword were the particular specialty of the Northern European cultures, with the German nations being quite active in its development and use.
