Description Sizing
 
At a full 53 inches long, this is a strong, commanding blade made of Impact-Grade Hickory. The extra handle length provides greater leverage and control. The weapon is handled much differently than a longsword.

History
Possibly in use as early as 1180, these swords are slightly larger than a longsword. They were also known by Marozzo and other Italian Masters as a "spada a due mani" or "two handed sword". They were only used by infantrymen, used against pole-arms and axes. These weapons are typically shown in German manuals such as Han Talhoffer's Fechtbuch. They weighed between 3 and 4 lbs and varied from 44 to 53 inches long.
Features
  • Made of Impact-Grade American Hickory Hardwood

5 of 5 Very sturdy and easy to use. May 6, 2019
Reviewer: William T.  
This is probably the perfect length and weight for about anyone looking for a wooden sword that is on the longer side. It came in perfect condition and even after a few messups I have yet to leave any visible marks or damage. Great purchase.

5 of 5 Great February 25, 2019
Reviewer: DALTON PENNELLA from Anderson, CA United States  
This is the 3rd sword ive purchased, but it is the largest ive ever wielded. I was a bit unprepared for the weight, but it will work great. The grain is SUPER straight and very tight.

5 of 5 Incredible Craftsmanship May 29, 2018
Reviewer: Richard White from Sandy, UT United States  
This sword is perfectly crafted, just an absolute beast in regards to durability and weight. I couldn't have asked for anything on this piece to be improved. Every penny spent is clearly shown in the details of this wooden sword.
