A general term for certain outsized war swords with long, heavy blades, great sword most often refers to medieval longswords that preceded the two-handed sword with its specified traits. Due to their massive size, medieval great swords could not be wielded comfortably with one hand, setting them apart from other longswords of the period. The historical great sword most often describes straight, two-handed swords from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, though the name is sometimes applied to 18th century curved-blade broadswords, as well. Fans of this medieval sword style can find an excellent array of options here at Buying a Sword. We offer great sword replicas from superb manufacturers like Cold Steel, Windlass, and Tinker Pearce.
