The essential simple, yet elegant and complex Longsword.
Popularised by Masters such as Talhoffer, Meyer and Leichtenhauer, the ~120cm long "Longsword" was a versatile and agile sword, whilst having the benefit of being very comfortable to carry. 
A very capable civilian defence sword and battlefield sidearm.

120cm long, with simple, strong cruciform Quillons with trumpeted finials for binding and winding. It feels incredibly lively in the hand, 

As with all our swords, the balance is based on historical examples, and so it is a very lively blade to wield, and feels great to use, and can quite comfortably be managed in a single hand. The hilt is strong, and allows you to use historical offensive and defensive techniques, even in LARP contexts.
