Swords of Medieval Europe (Approximately 500 to 1500 AD), evolved from Celtic swords, which in turn arose from a tradition of straight, double edged swords which began as early 1500 BC. At the beginning of the 18th century, swords evolved into blades approximately two feet in length and were designed for mobility. The blades were affixed to a wood, metal, or occasionally a bone handle. As Europeans conquered the frontiers of New Spain (what is now Northern Mexico and the Southwestern United States), soldiers, cattlemen, and fur trappers often used these swords as a weapon or as a basic survival tool.
