Medieval Long Sword

This is the classic type of medieval sword that most children are familiar with.  It has a long flat blade with a central groove, crossbar quillions and a wheel shaped pommel.  Although the grip is missing, the handle has been designed for use in one hand but is just large enough to accomodate two.  Swords like this were primarily a horsemans weapon but could also be used on foot.
