heres just a couple of a few weapons i knows of,
The Zweihander : a large two handed sword, its german name literally means two-handed.
they are known to have large quillions, a ricasso ( the ricasso is a piece of leather that comes right after the guard, you can grasp it to shorten the hilt to perform close combat like stabbing attacks and such), Parier Haken ( german for parrying hooks, these are two little spikes on each side on top of the ricasso, designed to protect your hand if your using the ricasso.)On the sides of the guard there are large rings, well its a very versatile sword and a company known as cold steel manufactures these under the name of Two-handed-greatsword, they even got a great video of them testing its battle ready blade out! i'll post it up when i get the chance.

Zweihander in action!^^^
The GrosseMesser: It's name is german for 'Big Knife' simply because its rather large, but its still smaller than a Kriegsmesser, and like the kriegsmesser, it has a curved thick one edged blade capitalizing on chopping the opponent down.

Grosse Messer in action!^^
Kriegsmesser: like the grossemesser above, its one edged bot alot bigger for to handed use, and sometimes there are hand and a half variants.
a good way for a quick kriegs/grossemesser, is to use the dwarven work sword and reskin it and resize it.
Katzbalger: this is a shortsword, typically used by the german mercenaries known as the Landesknecht, who also were famous for using the Zweihander. The Katzbalger's name translation is still disputed, because of the old german language of which it came. it either means cat gutter or cat fight, becuse it s ashortsword and you have to get it close.
he katzbalger consists of a figure eight guard, and a wide short blade.
im gonna go dig around for some pics to help you out m8.
