There are stories being told about you amongst the soldiers. You are the mercenary who has slain over a thousand men. You put fear in your enemies with one sweep of your weapon. Your aura of darkness freezes the hearts of anyone who looks you in the eye. And your favorite? Someone is saying you made a deal with a devil so that you may never die.

You will never tell them which might be true. Instead, as you sit just beyond the campfire and clean the blood from your Great Sword, you simply listen...and smirk.

DETAILS

This bestselling Epic Armoury Greatsword is a historic-looking two-handed sword with an extra long blade. From tip to pommel, the Greatsword spans a massive 140 cm, including a 105 cm long center ridged blade with a ricasso for half-swording techniques integral to true longsword fighting in close quarters. It has a sturdy and realistic looking crossguard with a 32 cm handle wrapped in split-leather. The grip is ergonomic to give you the best possible control of the lengthy blade. The pommel is designed to resemble an elongated cocked-hat often used on renaissance blades.

This Greatsword has been designed to fit low-fantasy genres with a realistic look that will fit line-breakers and other elite warriors across all worlds. Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your battlefield kit.

Available in Gold, Silver, and Copper.

HISTORY

  • Also referred to as a Zweih_nder (lit. Two-Hander)
  • Soldiers who trained to use these swords were called Meister des langen Schwertes (lit. Master of the Long Sword)
  • Required the use of two hands to wield, and was so long that it had to be carried without a sheath on the shoulder like a halberd
