A zweihander is a medieval 2 handed sword used mostly around the 12th-15th centuary . This devistating sword normally 6 feet in length required great strength and stamina to use . Zweihander translated litterally means twohander in mordern english . After the 15th centuary bastard and short swords where prefered and the use of the zweihander slowly died out . Many models are still around but most of them are owned by medieval enthusiast clubs of museums . A fine piece of medieval history
Most zweihander where forged during the 12th centuary at the time when they sounded most suitible to the thick heavy armour of the other nations
