Two handed Danish Sword (#1352)

Danish Two Handed Sword
Type XVIIIe, Medieval Sword
fifteenth Century (1410-1500)

The history of Denmark is filled with tumultuous periods of war and strife, conflicts driven by the same political and religious factors that were widespread throughout Medieval and Post-Medieval Europe. Smaller kingdoms were swallowed up by larger, and larger kingdoms splintered apart. The Two-Handed Danish Sword is based on the weapons of this region, specifically on the Oakeshott Type XVIIIe. This distinctive, powerful thrusting sword has been one of our most sought-after designs.
