European Two-handed Swords

Black Prince Sword.

The Black Prince sword has such an incredible balance that it could be used quite easily with one hand despite weighing roughly 60 ounces.

When holding the Black Prince sword for the first time, it almost feels alive in the hands; it seems to practically know what you want it to do and where you want the blade to go. This sword is essentially a dedicated thrusting sword whose point would have deadly efficiency if used by someone who knows how to exploit weaknesses in armor. Its cutting ability, while secondary, is admirable.
