Greatswords in Salt and Sanctuary are a type of Weapon. They are very large and have slower attacks than standard Swords, but hit harder.

 It is possible to wield Greatswords in 1-hand if you have one tier above them in the skill tree (Class 3 swords needed to 1-hand Class 2 Greatswords, for example), but even then you will attack slower compared to when you're 2-handing the weapon (Scharfrichter being the exception).  Class 5 Greatswords cannot be 1-handed.

      I have a Shrouded Bulwark V and I want to turn it into a Scharfrichter but it doesnt say I can transmute it into that, why? Do I need a certain level of devotion???

        This weapon class seems to do more damage (50% more) on rolling/strong attack if you hit a foe during an attack animation and does less damage (30% less) on the same attack if you hit after or before the attack animation of the foe (the counter window might be related to when the enemy's attack would've damaged you if it connected). That's why the Jaws of Death are so strong, you always get the bonus on the scissor-attack regardless of what the victim is doing.
