The long sword was in the arsenal of Byzantium in the 14th-15th century. It was the weapon of the nobility, and it was better to use with  heavy armor, although it was used also without it, and it was  also widespread in Bulgaria and Serbia. In the West except as war weapon, it  was the weapon used in duels , particularly in Italy, Germany and elsewhere, while in France it was called also epee.
We thank all  who helped for the presentation.
 with honor
