The entire weapon can be up to 55 long and has a weighted pommel at the end of the hilt, which makes it clumsy and easy to overpower if used in one hand. That because as armor technology improved, the shield found less and less use on the battlefield, and the knightly caste who could afford higher quality armor found better results with two handed weapons.
