History of the Broadsword

Since its introduction around the 6th century up until the 16th century, the Broadsword became the weapon of choice for medieval knights. With proper dedication and extensive training they were able to dominate the battlefield using their parrying and attacking skills, whilst being protected from attack by their sturdy armor.

The double-edged sword gave the fighter an advantage in close combat as the weapon was light and agile, but to do great damage it required a certain thrust or momentum (from a horse).

The knights that used the longest version of the sword were very well trained, usually from an early age. Only the most determined of knights mastered it, but if you were prepared to put in the effort you could become a well-respected member of medieval society and would be amply rewarded for your unique set of skills.
