The Broadsword had a straight, double-edged blade. Around three feet in length, the sword had a single-handed cruciform hilt with a pommel.
The Broadsword was the signiature weapon of knights, who wore it even when not in armor. It was designed to be used in either one or both hands. Not an overly heavy sword, it was still capable of breaking bones through shear blunt force trauma when striking an armored opponet. However it was still sharp and could easily cut through flesh and bone.
