Historical Description[]

Some Landsknechts, German mercenaries of the Renaissance era, carried a huge two-handed sword known today by the ahistorical term zweihander. The weapon developed from late medieval longswords around the same time as the similar Scottish claymore and Iberian montante. One of the main uses of the zweihander was to advance into otherwise impenetrable pike formations. This was apparently accomplished by swinging the sword around in a rapid figure-eight pattern to knock aside the enemy pike heads. Once within killing range, the wielder could grip a blunted part of the blade in a technique known as half-swording to effectively turn the weapon into a short spear. Alternatively, he could discard the zweihander and pull out a smaller sidearm that was better suited to close quarters.
