Two-Handed Swords

Two-handed swords were known as war-swords in the early Middle Ages and used to destroy an opponent’s shield, shear through mail, and damage helms. They were called great swords during the High Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The blades tended to be slightly longer than regular swords, and capable of damaging full plate armor to the point where the opponent’s movements were substantially impaired. Technically though, the two-handed sword belongs to the Renaissance. These swords were so big – around six feet long – that, unlike previous versions, it was only possible to wield them effectively with two hands. They were surprisingly light at 4–6 lbs and used to counter weapons like pikes and halberds. 

Museum Replicas’ collection of two-handed swords encompasses a wide variety of medieval period blades. Longswordswar-swordschoppersclaymores – we have them all. It’s not all history though; those inclined towards fantasy will love the Sword of Gandalf. Most swords in our selection are crafted of high carbon steel, which makes them extremely hard and able to retain an edge. Our swords adhere to stringent specifications and are a worthy homage to the weapons of the medieval and the Renaissance periods. Browse, pick one, and own the battlefield.

Review of: The Warbrand Sword

This sword is very much worth the price, its very well constructed and I don't think it'll ever break or come loose. Considering there's not really anywhere else to get something like this its very well done. Blade is well shaped and has a thick spine. The squared off  handle is not an issue if you wear gauntlets or gloves with it.

Review of: The Freedom Fighter Early Scottish Claymore

This sword is impressive. I received this as a Christmas gift. I was and still am blown away.

It greatly exceeded my expectations. I handled the braveheart claymore previously. The leather was a brighter tan color. The blade stock seemed thinner.

This freedom fighter version has a lovely darker leather on the handle and ricasso. The pommel and cross guard also seem antiqued in person. The combined affect is one of gorgeous class.

The sword was sharpened by mrl,  and is a calvary dicing razor. I have not cut with it yet,  but I can update the review if possible once I try it on the pill,  bottles, etc.

It's a heavy sword,  obviously,  and stats list point of balance out at 11 inches. There is historical precedence for this sword,  it's just not historically called a claymore. Point of balance probably should be more around 5 or 6, maybe even 7 inches from crossguard.

11 is a bit far comparing to other examples of this sword. However,  I am able to wield this in one hand. It is more comfortable with two hands.  It excels and I believe was designed by windlass to use one hand on grip and one on the leather wrapped ricasso.

In this fashion you can "half sword" and really make this blade move! This is how I have been practicing forms with it. A horse killing sword when swung from the grip. Half swording in the crush of battle. The balance falls to the handle on the ricasso.

Again,  I can say enough how beautiful this replica is. Tight fitting, well constructed with a good temper. The blade is flexible but plenty rigid.

Windlass has done very well and the details on the cross guard and pommel are exquisite.

Review of: Battlecry Bosworth Longsword

I am extremely pleased with this sword. For me, it essentially serves a decorative purpose and exceeds in that capacity. The blued finish has a gorgeous detail that is difficult to make out in the website's pictures. Paired with the shining silver blade, it is a beautiful sword. I must state that while it spends most of its time on display, I did not want to hang any weapon that isn't functional as well; it feels good in-hand, arrives pre-sharpened, and while I've only cut pumpkins with it there was no problem there... I honestly thought I somehow missed the pumpkin, my first strike; it didn't move. This sword cleanly bisected it laterally into two halves! Very fun :) My only reservation is that while the sword arrives "scissor sharp", I am reluctant to attempt to further sharpen it due to wanting to preserve the beautiful blue-black finish.  I believe this is a terrific weapon for the price, and am completely satisfied with this purchase.

Review of: The Sword Excalibur

This sword is the very reason sword collecting is so exciting. Everything about this sword cries out to the serious collector.  no one could know what the Excalibur sword would have looked like, but having this in your hand makes you feel you have a piece of history. I had it sharpened and it was well worth the money. even the scabbard was awesome. Get the Money, get this sword. You will love it!

Review of: Man-at-Arms Italian Long Sword

I've always had high regard for the Cold Steel brand but this one frankly surprised me with the level of quality and design at this price level.  They know how to manage offshore manufacturing -- assembly and finish are right up there.  The balance is superb, and the sword can be wielded comfortably in one hand if need be.   When I ordered it, I had reservations at first about an entirely blackened finish but can now  appreciate it from the maintenance standpoint.  If there's one downside, the only one I can think of is that although it came sharpened and with  "decent" functional edges,  it was not as sharp as I like swords to be.  Not a problem, it will be an easy job for me to hand-hone it to where I want it to be.    In terms of design, the blade is a very credible rendition of the Oakeshott Type XVIIIb, and the present hilt creates a point of balance 5 in. from the crossguard, so that it's responsive and points naturally.  The blade fits very well in its scabbard, which is made of thick leather with a sturdily-stitched seam, and a steel throat that matches  the crossguard perfectly.

Review of: Battlecry Bosworth Longsword

The Bosworth Longsword is well worth the price and the wait when on back order. I received this beauty and am very impressed with its handling and cutting ability. The thin blade makes slicing recovery superb and the action is fast. The supporting sections are beefy and well balanced, nothing loose or off center. Yet another great sword from the Windlass, say what you will about the over-seas manufacturing but they got it right on this one and the other two I own.
