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.More information
