Hello to averyone. I'm making a sword just for fun, but I saw a similar one in the web, a two handed danish sword. I try to find info, but I found too poor info. Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

What kind of info are you looking for? What have you seen? Why is it "poor info?"

There doesn't seem to be a ton of info specifically written about these types of swords. There's been many discussions of such swords on this forum. SImply use the search function.

I did and quickly came up with enough to keep me reading for awhile, including some of these:

If you look in the review section there are two, one an AT1592 by Angus Trim, and one a custom by arms and armor. The Dane is more thrust oriented, the A&A is more cut oriented and the 1592 splits the difference, although being an Atrim it leans towards the cut.

I was able to buy a 1592 and would be happy to answer any questions about it. I find it behaves more like a fencing Longsword than a dedicated two-hander. After It arrived I still felt the need for a "big two handed sword" but it handles amazingly well. That sword, more than any others I have, makes people pause and grin when it's picked up. The balance and feeling of it being an extension of your arm is apparent even to people who haven't handled swords before.

Here's a link to another custom XVIIIe.

Here is one made by Tinker, he's worked with both Angus Trim and collaborated with Hanwei.
