The Zweihänder also Doppelhänder ("double-hander") or Beidhänder ("both-hander") is a large two-handed greatsword and claymore primarily in use during the early decades of the 16th century.

Zweihänder swords developed from the longswords of the Late Middle Ages and became the hallmark weapon of the German Landsknechte from the time of Maximilian I (d. 1519) and during the Italian Wars of 1494–1559.

These swords represent the final stage in the trend of increasing size that started in the 14th century. In its developed form, the Zweihänder acquired the characteristics of a polearm rather than a sword due to their large size and weight and therefore increased range and striking power.

Although it arrived well after Christmas, my son is so very happy with his Zweihander Sword! The quality is better than we could have asked for, and I’m amazed that we were able to ship a sword that size! It’s almost taller than my 6ft+ tall son! Thank you so much for making his Christmas!
