The Giant's Knife is a powerful, but fragile two-handed sword from Ocarina of Time. It does twice as much damage as the Master Sword.[1]

Acquiring the Giant's Knife

In the Goron City, Link can go to the second section where Medigoron's Blade Store is found, blocked by stone walls. Link can simply blow them with Bomb Flowers or with his Bombs. If Link enters the store, Medigoron informs that he's working on something really cool, which will take about 5-6 years to be ready. If Link returns to the store as an adult, Medigoron has finished his small sword. Link can purchase it for 200 Rupees. However, after hitting it 8 times or 4 times at enemies, it will break, and is reduced to the power of the Kokiri Sword. It can be repaired by Medigoron for another 200 Rupees, but will break again in use.

As a two-handed weapon, Link cannot use his shield while wielding it, and will only bend down if the shield button is pressed with it in-hand.

There is a similar blade made by Biggoron that Link can acquire after completing the Trading Sequence. Unlike the Giant's Knife, Biggoron's Sword never breaks.[2]
