This great weapon has been duplicated to the
detail of an actual large bastard sword held in private collection. It’s
complex cross design is similar to one displayed in a museum in Zurich
dated to the time between 1480-1510. These early weapons were originally
carried by the strong and fearless Swiss and Germans, although bastard
swords soon became popular in other regions such as the British Isles and
Europe. The blade is 2” wide and 42” long. Overall length 56”. No sheath.
