Two things come to mind at the mention of "Medieval Sword". The first is a sword from the middle-ages and the second is an evil sword that is scary to wield.

A medieval sword is what you think of when you hear the quote "I'm just gonna have to go Medieval on your @$$
Medieval sword is a bit of a misnomer. There is no such proper name as a Medieval sword. But there are swords that are very medieval. These swords are typically of a fantastic nature with unusual lines and unusual shapes. They aren't the kind of swords that would have been actually used in the middle ages but they have become quite a popular collectibe item in the past few years based solely on their craftsmanship and their aesthetic sensibility.they do invoke a "Medieval" almost evil feeling

There are two basic types of Medieval Swords:

Unusual Blade Shapes: There is a certain shock factor when wielding a sword that has an unusual, and intimidating shape. Medieval swords with unusual shapes are often the choice of evil creatures in books and movies. Rarely will a good guy wield this type of sword.

Unusual Handle Shapes: Typically when a sword has a very medieval handl it denotes that the wielder is a "Good Guy" but not just any good guy - a good guy with a real "let's get down to business" attitude. This isn't always the case though. Often times a bad guy will wield a medieval sword with an unusual handle as an indicator of his evil intelligence and leadership.

The Medieval Ballistic Chopper Sword - This blade epitomizes Evil. The corrugated tip brings up some imagined carnage. There are deep grooves that run the length of the blade. This allows blood to freely flow off.

This is the LOTR Uruk Hai Scimitar as used in the Lord of the Rings Movie. It is a nasty and truly Medieval Sword. There is a certain scariness to it's simplicity. You can almost imagine it being swung then sticking right into a foe. Then the foe can be pulled closer for that up close and personal battle.

 

sword

This is truly a Medieval Sword! It has a very unique blade shape. This is called The Red Flame Fantasy Sword and one can only imagine that the serrations at the base portion of the blade were designed to impale then not be easily removed. Or to cause massive damage when the blade was pulled out.

 

Unusual Handle Shapes:

Typically when a sword has a very medieval handle it denotes that the weilder is a "Good Guy" but not just any good guy. A good guy that can kick some serious back side. This isn't always the case though. Sometimes this type of sword is wielded by a bad guy that has a lot of intelligence and power.
