What is a Two-Handed Sword?

A two-handed sword is a type of European sword that requires the use of both hands to wield effectively. These swords typically have a long blade, measuring between 4 to 6 feet in length, and a long hilt that allows for a two-handed grip. This grip allows for greater control over the sword, enabling the wielder to deliver powerful and precise strikes.

What is a 2 Handed Sword Called?

Two-handed swords come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they are known by different names depending on their specific characteristics and origins.
