Hand and a Half Swords

Hand and a half swords is a modern term to describe bastard swords but it is used in reference to long swords. The hand and a half blade is used for thrusting and the length of the blade is not any longer than the long sword. The grip of the hand and a half sword was long enough to accommodate one hand or two hands when used in combat. These swords appear around the 16thcentury.
