Two Handed Swords
Two Handed Swords are also known as the Great sword and Zweihander. A two handed sword is a large sword that is up to about 6 feet in length and weight about 15 to 20 pounds. The sword was used from the middle of the 15 century to the late 16 century. The name evolved because it took two hands to use the sword in battle. These swords were mainly used for swing rather than thrusting, to crush through heavy armour that was used. The two handed sword is a double edged sword with a round point. The hilt was straight or slightly curved quillions while the grip was very long. The pommel was either triangular, faceted or pear-shaped to balance the weapon. Around late 16 century heavy armour disappear because of firearms so the two-handed sword was only used for ceremonial purposes.
