Hullo folks!

I've written an article briefly analyzing the data of the original longswords I've collected thus far. A lot of graphs included, because graphs are cool.

I have put a link to your article and the following brief summary of it:

Some new data on longsword length & weight (mass) (60+ longswords).

Some averages:
13/14th century sword: total length: 1148 mm, blade length: 907 mm, weight: 1516 gr;
15th century sword: 1159 mm, blade length: 897 mm, weight: 1506 gr
''Pretty similar to the 13/14th century average.'';
16th century sword: 1169 mm, blade length: 912 mm, weight: 1671 gr.

into the talk section of the wiki article on longsword (English, Hungarian).
