A long sword is a common sword larger than a short sword or Dagger but still shorter than a Greatsword.A long sword usually is a single-handed sword though some variants are two-handed swords, swords that can be used as a one-handed and a two-handed weapon - these are known as bastard swords.The elven "hand-and-a-half" Longsword was called Megil.

In Middle-Earth long swords were used by the Easterlings for example the Asdriag, Odhriag and Sagath,the Black Númenóreans,the Dorwinrim, the Rohirrim and some half-elves.
