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 period blades. Longswordswar-swords, choppers and claymores, but it’s not all history. Those inclined towards fantasy will find something as well. 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: Claymore by Paul Chen / Hanwei

An excellent weapon. At first I was daunted that there were no reviews but upon further research I found nothing but positive reviews.   The blade is surprisingly thick and from what I have seen can take quite the beating. It is just flexible enough not to break, but if you don’t prefer your swords being flexible, it is also very sturdy. I haven’t seen any time where it bent other than when I was actively trying, which took a lot of effort! It has a beautiful design, if a bit simple, but I think that adds to the authenticity and overall longevity. If you were also looking at the antiqued varient, I would warn that it is only a finish, so if you sharpen or maintenance the blade it will rub off. I think this blade is an impressive height, and just about the longest you can go without looking gaudy. I was glad that I bought this sword and not a longer one, because I think it approaches the upper range regarding the ability to actually use it properly. It’s weight is not to be underestimated, and it’s balance is perfect for its use. My only warning is... learn how to properly swing it! If you think you know how, think again! I hurt my shoulder with a bad swing, but that user error could have easily been avoided by reading a couple of paragraphs!

Review of: Hanwei/ Tinker Sharp Longsword

Great sword for the price.  Just getting into sword collecting, and this is one of the first real swords I have bought.  Been picking it up everyday since I bought it  Even done some real hitting practice with it, and the blade is holding up nicely.  One negative, which I knew before buying was the sharpness.  It states sharp Longsword, but it could be a little bit more sharper.  Overall -  love it.

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: Battlecry Bosworth Longsword

This is a wonderful sword.  Period.  For the price range, I do not know of a better one.
The price is reminiscent of one from a competitor, but the way this moves, and the scent stopper design sets it apart.
This sword moves like the swords that I drool over that are out of my price range.
I would prefer a different cross guard, but I didn't design it so I will not rate it down for that.
Hands down the best moving longsword in its price range, AND it moves as well as far more expensive blades.
The one warning is that the diamond cross section is kind of pronounced (and probably how they keep the price down).  This does not bother me, but it will bother some, and you should be aware.
Well done Museum Replicas and Mr. Clements.  This is a genuine sword with exceptional feel, not some movie based parody.

Review of: Battlecry Bosworth Longsword

I am extremely pleased and impressed with the Bosworth Longsword. It is exactly what I had been hoping and waiting for: an economical, no nonsense, sharp longsword that handles authentically that can be used for test cutting experiments. It basically handles identically to high-end sparring steel "feather" swords. Highly recommended.
