A "sword" is a typical sketch with more long-range weapons than a "dagger." The difference between a sword and a dagger is usually arbitrary. Still, it is generally believed that after technical advances, the sword came out of the dagger and allowed the blade to grow longer. The term "sword" includes many blades such as suede, repairer, schemer, and cutlass. The following article is a brief history of swords in the Western world.


Early swords are said to have been made of stone during adolescence. These ancient weapons gave way to the first flint daggers made of copper. Antique swords were first built in two parts: blades and handles, usually held together by rivets.

The most outstanding work in making swords and daggers took place when the length of the blade was extended to the circumference of the handle (whole leg), and thus a sword was created from a piece of metal. The construction of the complete tang prevented the blade from stopping and separating during the war. On the one hand, if you plan to replicate or buy a replica sword for the game, ensure that the blade has a "complete tail construction" not to cause embarrassing accidents during sword fighting. To survive

During the Classical period, swords were usually short, straight, and comprehensive - this style of blade is often called the Imperial Gladiator Sword. The sword of choice by the Roman warriors, "Gladys," clearly demonstrated such qualities. There was also a long Roman sword (called "spatha"), but it was not as common as Gladius. Other styles of blades outside the Roman Empire were called "nineteen."

The Franks, who would later rule modern-day France, preferred long swords, like the Roman Spatha. Unlike Roman Spatha, however, the French word was made of soft iron, making it unreliable in war situations.
By the end of the sixth century (after the fall of the Roman Empire), Viking invaders became increasingly trendy in the sword department. The sword styles that the Viking Readers brought with them were rapidly renewed in continental Europe. The venue "Night Sword" style is derived directly from Viking swords.


By the 6th century, European swords had evolved from the vast Roman style to some heavy and deadly form. So far, we can distinguish four understandable components in mainstream European swords.

(1) Pomel - Usually, a round piece of metal is placed at the end of the hamlet. Pommel competed with the blade to increase mobility.

(2) Grip / Handle - This is where you grab the sword. During the early period and in the Middle Ages, the length of the handle had to be increased to allow double handgrip, later marked. During the Second and Modern Era, the size of the handle became insignificant.

(3) Crossbar - The crossbar (sometimes also known as "guard") was inserted between the handle and the blade to provide balance as well as hand protection. Later, as medieval armor and metal gantlets became increasingly unpopular, the protector became more expansive and protective to protect the weak arm.

()) Blade - Straight, pointed, and double-edged, the blade sometimes has a central canal (sometimes called a "blood vessel") that is light and runs down the middle for strength.

Something else that the Scandinavian Vikings brought with them was the innovation of carbon steel. Whether by accident or not, the Vikings began using carbon steel to make swords using a technique called "strip welding." With strip welding, you take several bundles of metal, hammer them together, cut them, bend them, and hammer again - thus carbonizing the blade material and making it many times more potent.

After all, medieval swords were wielding powerful weapons. In medieval times, medieval swords were purely offensive weapons, relying on their medieval shields and physical armor to protect fighters. This contrasts with the Renaissance Repair that will come centuries later, with fines and tactics overpowering evil.

Renaissance swords

When civilization began anew, medieval knights realized that their long, heavy swords were no better than fighting closely. At the same time, improvements in trade and commerce gave rise to high-quality sword artistry. Germany, like Toledo, Spain, and Solange, became famous for their superior swords. Just as Germany now sells us BMWs and Mercedes, Germany has since exported its swords to the known world.

During the first half of the sixteenth century, swords changed rapidly throughout Europe. Repair, a long, narrow blade with a guard design, soon rose in popularity.

Across Europe, it was common for noble people to wear repairs at all times, which inevitably increased the number of duplicates everywhere. With the sixteenth-century civilian sword, a high level of hostility completely changed the art of sword fighting during the Renaissance.

You may survive by swinging and hacking with your giant sword in medieval times, but turning your blade can keep you open to attack if your opponent is a skilled swordsman. Therefore, sword fighting evolved from Brett Force to Strategic Thrusts, Feet, and Wings. By the 17th century, civilian rappers had shrunk further and are now called "small words." Surprisingly, the most prominent purpose of the short words was fashion. Civilians decorated their little words according to their taste, recent fades, family tradition, and so on.
Elsewhere, the swords did not run out. Broadsword was still widely used in the German and Swiss armies, and the famous Scottish Clement was still in use until the 17th century. In most other militias, the medieval sword was replaced by the sword repairer, a heavier version of the urban rapper. Towards the end of the English Civil War, the sword rapper was replaced by "Cavalry Broads Word," which better protected the backs of swordsmen with basketball designs.

Modern sword

Since the mid-1700s, the dominant type of sword has been the saber - a standard single-edged blade used primarily for cutting. By 1800, civilian shorthand had all disappeared. Rarely did I see anyone walking side by side with a sword.

In the military world, the sword is still in place. In particular, the navy kit class (small, slightly curved blade with heavy protector) became infamous for its usefulness nearby and while climbing. As long as guns were still single-shot weapons, armies around the world still relied on their loyal swords, and even during the American Civil War, the cavalry would continue to charge with their comrades. However, the invention of the repetition of firearms, for obvious reasons, quickly ended the power of the sword. Some (very) brave European cavalry personnel used patience in WWI and WWII, but their efforts turned out to be an ineffective anachronism.

Today swords are used primarily for ceremonial purposes and as symbols of honor. Swords are still used in armies for traditional purposes, but for combat purposes, swords are practically non-existent.

The end of swords?

The word "end" has two different meanings. On the one hand, "end" means end or termination. In that sense, yes - swords are a thing of the past for all means and purposes.

However, the alternative meaning of the word "end" gives us additional insight. As you may have guessed, the "end" can also be a goal. You ask, if swords are in the museum, what is their purpose? Collecting swords for fun is not just a hobby; it is also our portal to the past! Blades have been around for thousands of years, and their use has changed the course of history countless times.
