The blade illustrated above in the left photo on the left is our flat tang model. These have a width of from 1 1/8 inches to 1 3/4 inches at the shoulder, depending on the overall length, and a constant taper to the button of the tip which has a width of approximately 3/8 inches. Our flat tang blades have a length up to to 43 inches. Blades under 40 inches in length have a 1 inch wide tang, narrowing to 7/8 inches at the pommel end. The blade illustrated above in the right photo is an example of the flamberge version of our long sword blade. Our long sword and great sword blades have a 1 1/4 inch wide tang, narrowing to 7/8 inches at the pommel end. Long sword blades and great sword blades are not interchangeable without some hilt modification. Great sword tangs are 1/32 inch thicker than our standard flat tang blades for added stiffness. Also, please note: Our flat tanged blades require a custom pinned pommel which may be ordered separately. Additionally, flat tang blades may be ordered slightly curved at no extra charge. This slight curve is only cosmetic and provides the user with no real advantage. A greater amount of curve may be added for an extra charge of $10.
