A sword is an edged, bladed weapon, used for manual cutting or thrusting. Its blade is longer than a knife or dagger and is attached to a hilt. Swords can be straight or curved.
The precise definition of the term sword varies with the historical epoch or the geographical region under consideration. In the most narrow sense, a sword consists of a straight blade with two edges and a hilt. But in many cases, the term can be used to refer to weapons with a single edge.
Historically, the sword was developed in the Bronze Age evolving from the dagger. Earliest specimens date back to about 1600 BC.
In this documentary, we take a look at the complete history and evolution of swords. How has their usage and purpose changed over the years?
