From 1300 onwards the shape and strength of the sword changed rapidly because the growing use of armour and a shield was unnecessary. The grip and the blade became longer so that it could be used two-handed now that a shield was not longer necessary. The large swords were longswords that could only be used with two hands. They were the predecessors of the later and even larger two-handed swords. Large swords were only used by infantrymen. The shape of the blade was first wide and flat, later on slimmer and more pointed and also the later point was thinner to better pierce the armour.
This two-handed sword has an angular pommel that was meant to draw into the fight. The wide cross-guard could catch enemy blows and protect the hand. The length of this sword is 120 cm and it has a blade of 88 cm. A fuller is forged in the blade that had the purpose of making the sword lighter and more flexible.
