The spatha, the sword that was developed in the Iron Age, was the most frequently used sword in Western Europe until the Middle Ages. Combined with a shield this sword was deadly. The point of the sword was rounded, so not suitable for stabbing, but because of the two sharp edges the sword could be very well used. Only from the 11th century onwards the medieval swords developed a cross-guard and in the period of the crusades the design remained nearly the same: a cross shape with a slim blade and different shaped pommels.
