1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

The Basket-hilted sword, also called Basket-hilted broadsword, is weapon with a broad, double edged blade, and a thick steel basket over the hilt. The size and shape of the hand guard grants a couple advantages over a more traditional longsword. First, because the whole hand is enveloped by it, it is very difficult to wrest it from someone grip; the wielder gains a +4 bonus on opposed rolls to avoid being disarmed.
