Medieval Swords

Medieval Sword ImageThe weapons used during the Middle Ages include the Medieval Swords. The Medieval Swords was predominantly used by a Medieval Knight. The weapons, armor and horse of the Knight were extremely expensive - the fighting power of just one knight was worth 10 ordinary soldiers. Medieval swords were the primary weapon of the Knights. Medieval swords changed as Medieval Warfare and armour changed. At the beginning of the Middle Ages a double edged slashing sword was used but as time went by it evolved into a stronger, diamond-shaped sword that could thrust between the rings of chain mail more easily. The different kinds of Medieval swords included the Broadsword, Falchion swordLongsword, and Greatsword. When someone refers to a medieval sword, they are generally speaking of a sword that would have been carried by either a knight or a soldier during the Middle Ages. Although the exact start and end dates of the medieval age has been disputed for years, all Strongblade references (unless otherwise noted) refer to the period between 500 A.D. (around the time the Roman Empire was ending) to about 1500 AD (around the time when the renaissance was beginning).

Medieval Sword Reviews

More About Medieval Swords

The knight and his arming sword were inseparable. Though a knight might switch other weapons throughout his life and even during a single battle, the arming sword was his for life. In fact, it was likely that a knight would go through more wives than arming swords, and, when you consider that arming swords were often handed down from generation to generation, it's quite possible that an entire family tree would use the same sword. Because of this, arming swords were much more than just weapons. They became symbols of the men who carried them. Badges of honor, symbols of rank and nobility, and messages to all that the bearer was both a gentleman and warrior; that he could save your soul or take it in an instant.

The relationship between the knight and his arming sword was similar, if not so religious, as the relationship between a samurai and his katana. Knights would have sacred or other meaningful words inscribed into the blades of their swords, inlaid with silver or gold. These words served as both an inspiration and personal motto for them. As mentioned, arming swords were handed down from generation to generation.

The swords, used in combat, often suffered damage or breakage, so the blade would be refitted, or a new pommel would be attached, or perhaps a new grip would be added to replace an old worn one. It's possible that the sword a great-great grandson bore no longer resembled the original. Arming swords in warfare were used mostly as backup weapons for lances and much larger battle swords. The knight would draw these swords when dismounted, or when his other weapons were lost or broken. The arming sword, however, would have been used quite often in one-on-one combat and in smaller scale combats. In some tourneys, knights would first joust with lances, then, when unseated, would draw their arming sword and continue the combat.

Medieval swords almost always have pommels (often using a variation of the standard "disk" pommel), usually have well defined crosses (or quillons), and typically have long fullers (indented grooves running along the blade). Of the many medieval swords that have been excavated or found, quite a few have engravings on the blades. Usually, these engravings were of a religious nature, with sacred phrases or sketches etched into the blade and usually filled with another metal, like silver.

Forging

The most common forging technique during the early medieval ages was known as "Pattern Welding." This is a technique of folding metal and grinding/pounding it down into itself repeatedly. Pattern-welding caused visible "waves" and patterns in the metal, thus giving it its name. Asian (particularly Japanese) smiths took this technique further, and are generally regarded as having "perfected" the style, although Japanese forging techniques are quite different from the original pattern welding of the middle ages.
