Tinker Pearce bastard sword

"Hey, wait a minute, Therion. For YEARS you've been telling us to stop using the Victorian term "bastard sword" and use the proper term "longsword", and here you are showing us a BASTARD SWORD!"

"Yeah, I know, and you're right, this is a longsword, and you shouldn't call it a bastard. However, Tinker and Hanwei are producing *two different* longsword sharp/blunt sets - one with a 12" grip and 35" blade, and this one with it's 9" hilt and 33" blade. I could call them a "long grip longsword" and a "medium grip long sword", but that would start getting a bit confusing. Tinker calls this a "bastard sword", so in order to minimize confusion, I'm going with bastard sword, JUST IN THIS INSTANCE. The Tinker Pearce longsword is the long grip longsword, the sword pictured/listed on this page is the medium grip longsword. Capice? We cool?"
