Basket-hilt Broadsword (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
A sword with a broad, double edged blade, and a thick steel basket over the single handed hilt. The size & 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 +2 bonus on opposed rolls to avoid being disarmed.
When wielded by someone with Weapon Focus [Basket Hilted Broadsword], gains a +1 Deflection bonus to AC.
