| A sword with a long, slashing blade.
"While we were at grips with this great army and their dreadful broadswords (maquahuitl [made of obsidian]), many of the most powerful among the enemy seem to have decided to capture a horse. They began with a furious attack, and laid hands on a good mare well trained both for sport and battle. Her rider, Pedro de Moron, was a fine horseman; and as he charged with three other horsemen into the enemy ranks-they had been instructed to charge together for mutual support-some of them seized his lance so he could not use it, and others slashed at him with their broadswords (maquahuitl), wounding him severely. Then they slashed at his mare, cutting her head at the neck so that it only hung by the skin. The mare fell dead, and if his mounted comrades had not come to Moron's rescue, he would probably have been killed also."
-Bernal Díaz del Castillo, _The Conquest of New Spain_. 1623
This weapon falls into the Long Blades category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the dexterous.
Long swords are among the weaker Long Blades in the game. They're good for players who are just branching out into Long Blades, but you should aim to find something better as soon as possible.
