The hand-and-a-half sword had a size between a one-handed sword and a two-handed sword. The grip was somewhat larger than the grip of a one-handed sword so that the soldier could put an extra hand on the grip for hard blows and put more force behind the blow.
This training sword is suitable for light sword fights and has a slightly bent cross-guard to better catch blows. The wooden grip is inlaid with blue leather and gold thread for extra grip. The hand-and-a-half sword has a length of 103 cm and has a wide blade of 76 cm.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
