Two-Handed is a skill in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim , and is one of the six skills that falls under The Warrior play-style. Two-handed skill is raised by the use of large melee weapons that are wielded with two hands. Due to the use of both hands, a spell or another weapon cannot be used while a two-handed weapon is equipped. When using two-handed weapons, the weapon can be used to block incoming attacks. Two-handed weapons do significantly more damage, but they take more time to swing and their power attacks use more stamina than any other type of weapon.
