German Bastard Sword
Price: 1323 HKD / 182.42 USD (with double padding and flexible tip)
Although it is termed a bastard sword, the German bastard sword is actually more of a great sword by both its size and its weight. It is a model dated from the 16th century. Being a sword made in the time of renaissance, it features a complex hilt to stop the attack coming along the side of the blade, protecting the wielder's hand. Moreover, it has a big pommel to match the real sword's pommel size. European sword of this length can be used in binding where the forte of the blade could push the opponent's blade out of the way while the tip of the sword performs the attack.
Due to the rigidity of the blade, it is mandatory that the participants would wear padded armor or gambeson to avoid injuries. Another option is to build the sword with double padding so that it could be used without additional armor.
Double padded swords have a broader profile for better shock absorption ability.
A sword with double padding is shown below along with a normal padded one.
