Description

The term Bastard sword originates from the the French 'epee batarde'. This term refered to a 'hand and a half sword' or a 'long sword'. The blade could be the same length as a single hand sword, but the tang and the grip were long enough to accommodate two hands providing better leverage and more power. The versatility of the design prevented the sword from being specifically categorized as either a one-handed or two-handed weapon. The word bastard was applied to this sword meaning something irregular or inferior or of dubious origin, having a misleading appearance.

Inspiration

The French épée de passot, épée bâtarde, or coustille à croix. The German arming sword, "Reitschwert" or "Degen"


During the early Renaissance the term bastard-sword was also sometimes used to refer to single-hand arming-swords with compound-hilts. A form of German arming sword with a bastard-style compound hilt was called a "Reitschwert" ("cavalry sword") or a "Degen" ("knight's sword")". Qui n'étoit ni Françoise, ni Espagnole, ni proprement Lansquenette, mais plus grande que pas une de ces fortes épées ("[a sword] which was neither French, nor Spanish, nor properly Landsknecht [German], but longer than any of these sturdy swords.") Espée bastarde could also historically refer to a single-handed sword with a fairly long blade compared to other short swords.
