its the bastard sword from legend of dragoons wielded by dart


"The bastard sword, or contemporary espée bastarde, is a type of sword dating from roughly the early 15th century. It received its name for fitting into neither the one-handed sword family, nor the "two handed sword family", thus being labelled a "bastard These weapons featured longer grips similar to those found on the longswords. The extra space was not enough to allow both hands entirely, however, but was enough to provide for the use of a couple of fingers or a part of the palm, providing some extra leverage. The grips of bastard swords often feature a "waisted" appearance, as in the Oakeshott Type XVIa. The bastard sword, more so than the great sword, plays into the "hand-and-a-half sword" classification, as some great swords provided considerably more than an extra "half" hand for gripping. Similarly, the shorter length of the weapon at roughly 45 to 55 inches (115-140cm) put the sword halfway between the shorter single-handed sword and the larger (and occasionally fully two-handed) great sword.

Like all other types of swords, the bastard sword existed in a number of configurations, generally tending towards a strongly tapered and thicker blade as time went on. This manifestation, along with a relatively small blade length in relation to hilt length, gave the sword a very precise and reactive nature that served well for cutting or thrusting, much like a side-sword. The form of the bastard sword began very much like that of the greatsword, based in the beginning of the 15th century off transition swords evolving from the spatha. Like the transition swords, the first bastard swords featured a plain or cruciform cross-guard (cross) and a round or wheel pommel. Later development of the weapon, however, saw the inclusion of curved quillions, ring guards, and compound hilts similar to those on baskethilts (swords like the schiavona that nearly enclosed the entire hand in a protective guard). These served to provide increased protection for the wielder's hands and may have also positively affected the balance of the weapon.

Such swords with compound hilts include the German Reitschwert, a form of cavalry sword, and the "Degen" or "Knight's Sword". It is possible, however, that these swords are in fact a single-handed manifestation of the estoc."

Most of the knights during the medieval times utilize the use of the bastard sword due to its effectiveness in small enclosed areas and its superior reach compared to one-handed swords. In fact, almost 40% of the authentic weapons that date back to the 15th century are bastard swords. IMHO, the simplicity of the design and the history behind such a sword would justify its beauty. But due to the forum topic being (WHO has the nicest blade), my vote goes to the "Marxbrüder" wielded by "Albrecht Dürer 1471 ~ 1528".

Mine.
Why?
Because it's real and it's a nihonto and if anyone wielding a giant sword (EI: Clouds sword) or a stupidly intricate sword, mine would be the one with the best cutting power and I have the skill to back it up.

Actually, I'm an assistant instructor in the koryu bujutsu Muso Shinden ryu Iaijutsu holding the (menkyo) rank of Okuden. My instructor, Mark Huntington was a student of the great iaidouka Danzaki Tomoaki who in turn was the student of Nakayama Hakudo, the last headmaster of MSR and the reformer of the near 500 year old art. I've been a practitioner of JSA for nearly 7 years staring when I was 18. Under the same instructor I
I've taken fencing when I was in college.
Aside from that I've been enrolled in various martial arts (No more than two years experience though) for 19 years since I enrolled in Taekwondo when I was 5 or 6.
