Long Sword

The Longsword (sometimes spelled Long Sword or Long-sword) is a type of European sword used during the late medieval period, approximately 1350 to 1550 (with early and late use reaching into the 13th and 17th centuries).

Longswords have long cruciform hilts with grips over 10 to 15 cm length (providing room for two hands). Straight double-edged blades are often over 1 m to 1.2 m (40" to 48") length, and weigh typically between 1.2 and 2.4 kg (2½ to 5 lb), with light specimens just below 1 kg (2.2 lb), and heavy specimens just above 2 kg (4½ lb).

The longsword is commonly held in combat with both hands, though some may be used single-handed. Longswords are used for hewing, slicing, and stabbing. The specific offensive purpose of an individual longsword is derived from its physical shape. All parts of the sword are used for offensive purposes, including the pommel and crossguard.

In Mortal Kombat

Scorpion and Mileena use a Long Sword in Mortal Kombat 4 and Mortal Kombat Gold. Sub-Zero used the same Long Sword in early versions of Mortal Kombat 4, although it was eventually switched for the Ice Scepter.
