This extremely distinctive looking two handed sword is classified by Oakeshott as a XVIIIe, a very unusual member of the Type XVIII group. It features a long, stiff diamond shaped blade with an extremely long handle, making it suitable for cut and thrust swordplay as many other swords were in the later 15th Century.
While the edge comes with a narrow 1.4mm edge so you can actually use it in blade on blade contact (CAREFULLY and RESPONSIBLY of course – please see our section on sword training and fighting on the main site for info) – the blade is more than strong enough that you can sharpen it up yourself if you want to use them for test cutting practice.
The hilt itself is extremely attractive and authentic, with a mild steel crossguard and genuine leather wrap handle. This sword also has a long unsharpened ricasso that can be gripped to shorten up the blade for closer work. This option to fight with the “half sword” makes the Danish Two-Handed Sword an incredibly versatile weapon.
This sword has an attractive lobed pommel typical for this style of blade, which is also PEENED to the hilt for maximum durability.
Weighing in just shy of 3lbs the Danish Two Hander is very fast for a sword of this size and once sharpened, is more than capable of generating enough speed to cut even the lightest targets such as pool noodles yet durable enough to take on much heavier targets, making it extremely versatile for such a large sword.
