CS88HNH: Hand-And-A-Half Sword
This listing is for the Hand-And-A-Half Sword (CS88HNH). The Hand-And-A-Half Dagger (CS88HNHD) is sold separately and can be found here. There is also a Man at Arms collection high value Hand-and-a-Half Sword (CS88HNHM) with a leather handle available here.
We would be hard pressed to think of a more versatile or effective sword than the "Bastard" or "Hand-and-a-Half Sword" we offer here. For a sword of this size, it's amazingly light and fast and tips the scales at approximately 3 lbs. Its 33 1/2" long blade is quite wide so it can produce deep shearing type cuts yet pointed enough to be effective in a thrusting attack. Its long handle is suitable for both a one or two handed grip and is fashioned out of wood covered in black leather. To balance the long blade we have capped the butt with a beautiful "scent stopper" pommel which can be a lethal weapon in its own right.
Hand-And-A-Half Dagger (sold separately)
Scaled down in size and almost identical in appearance, it offers a 13" long blade designed to cut and thrust, yet be sturdy enough to stand in for a buckler in defensive roles.
Every Hand-and-a-Half Sword and companion dagger reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials and comes fully sharpened and ready for battle. To safely house their keen blades we have also included very attractive scabbards made of wood covered with black leather with a steel throat and chape.
