Two-Handed Great Sword
Cold Steel's two-handed Great Sword is the biggest sword they make. But don't let its size fool you, as there is nothing awkward or clumsy about this awesome weapon. Sure, it is big and meant to be carried over the shoulder, but it is extremely well-balanced and easily wielded by people of larger stature and physical strength.
Weighing about 3 kg with a 1 m long high carbon steel blade, it will make short work of pikemen or swordsmen and will prove equally effective against modern rifle butts and bayonets.
The Germans also use the term Gassenhauer (literal translation: lane blower) for the two-handed Great Sword, as it allowed to literally clear a path by fencing one's way through enemy lines.
To protect the hands from opposing weapons, it features a large guard with side rings plus integral parrying hooks that allow the blade to be shortened for close range slashing and stabbing attacks.
The leather-covered wooden handle is extra-long to afford a full two-handed grip. It is capped by a heavy steel pommel that helps counterbalance the long blade and serves as an effective weapon in its own right.
The two-handed Great Sword is sturdy, strong, sharp and battle-ready.
