There are also people, that don't care for historical realism, but just have played a lot of RPGs and are able to differentiate sabre - scimitar - yatagan - machete - cutlass - sabre
Don't be that guy
Most people don't know/care about historical sword details and as far as they can tell, saber = sword. I'm pretty sure what OP meant when saying "saber".

No dice. The Saber/Sabres in Eternity have grips that are going to make sure you are using them one handed. Also Obsidian should just stick to their guns, if you want to use a sword two handed get a great sword or an estoc.
