This picture is about the Medieval weapons and what they are used for. The sword is mainly used in battles or fights. Also the Bastard Sword is the name given to swords that fall between the long sword and the great sword in size. A bastard sword is sometimes referred to as "hand-and-a-half sword". Another medieval weapon is the Tonfa. The Tonfa is one of the most popular devices in the Okinawan and Japanese karate and Jujitsu. The tonfa is essentially a club with a handle that protrudes at a 90 degree angle. This allows a practitioner to hold the handle in a solid grip while the club protects the forearm. The dagger is a short knife with a pointed and edged blade, used as a weapon in Medieval Europe.
