Medieval single-handed swords, often known as knightly swords or arming swords, are characterised by a straight blade with a double edge, followed by a cruciform hilt. During the late Medieval period, these became more popular as a sidearm.
Approximate specifications are as follows:
Steel: EN45 spring steel
Full length: 101.5cm
Blade length: 84cm
This is not moisture resistant steel, therefore the blade must be kept dry and regularly oiled to keep in top condition.
