Longsword is a general term for one handed weapons used for war with a blade sharpened on both sides. The stereotypical King Arthurian long sword is 36 inches long and weighs about 3 pounds. However, long swords can be between 24 and 44+ inches long, and their weight can vary based on how they were constructed and what they are made out of. They are also sometimes referred to as war swords, and most often refer to the arming sword. However, longsword is a very general term and can refer to many different types of weapons from different time periods and cultures.
