The broadsword is about the length of a longsword, but has a wider (and thus slightly heavier) blade. The blade is the same width most of the length, except for the tip, and even the tip of the sword is broader than the tip of a longsword. The broadsword usually has a basket hilt to protect the wielder’s hand, but some are made without the basket hilt.
