|“||The short sword is the first type of sword to come into existence. In the simplest of terms, a short sword can be considered a dagger with a blade so long it can no longer be called a dagger. The term short sword does not exist in sword classifications. However, it has come to be used to describe a double-edged blade about two feet in length. The sword tip is usually pointed, ideal for thrusting.||”|
