  • William the Conquerer Sword

    The year 1066 AD will forever be known as the turning point of British history with the Norman invasion, led by Duke William “The Conqueror”, soon became the first Norman King of England. This magnificent sword represents the epitome of this heroic man. The long, wide fuller down the blade lightens the weight, making it a formidable weapon. The Brazil-nut shaped pommel has been inset with the battle cross of William, as well as the blade’s fuller. As legend goes, upon landing on the shores of England for the first time William fell flat on his face. Upon rising, he turned and said, “I have already grasped my Kingdom.” The straight hilt has been inscribed with this phrase in Latin: Jam Accepisse Regnum. Finally, the sturdy wooden grip has been covered in a deep, blood red leather and has been wound with a braided silver wire. Accompanying this fine blade is a wooden scabbard, covered in a brown leather and embossed with the cross of the Conqueror. A matching blood red belt with period ties is attached.

  • Sword of Robin Hood

    1 Review(s)

    Our original Robin Hood sword is the licensed replica from "Robin Hood," the Universal Pictures movie directed by Ridley Scott. Made of hand forged carbon steel, this licensed Robin Hood sword is just like the sword in the movie – down to the smallest detail. The unusual hilt is a very special eye-catcher. The hardwood grip is set with decorative turquoise cabochons and the steel has been treated to look old. The inscription made famous in the movie is engraved on the steel surfaces at the sides: "Rise and rise again" or "Until lambs become lions." The octagonal pommel is riveted and decorated with the cross pattée favoured by crusaders. Our original Robin Hood sword includes a decorative shield with the Loxley family coat of arms that you can hang on the wall and use to display the sword.

  • Sword of Tancred

    Prince Tancred (known in French as Tancrède de Hauteville) was a Norman lord of Southern Italy who was among the first noblemen to join the Crusades in 1096. He saw considerable victories on this bloody campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he acquired the title Prince of Galilee. Our exquisite Sword of Tancred has been researched from this legendary knight’s adventures. 

    The pommel has a representation of the red Nurit flower of Galilee on the one side, while the opposite is adorned with the crusader cross, which Tancred adopted during the Crusades. The hard wooden handle has been covered with soft, deep brown stitched leather, accented with antique brass details. The imposing 2" wide blade has a deep fuller running the length, giving great balance to this mighty sword. Included is a period stitched scabbard in matching brown suede with long leather belt.

  • German Longsword

    We call this elegant edged weapon a "German Longsword," but this type of blade was widely used in Europe during the Late Middle Ages. Its slender shape, acute point and lack of fuller predetermine this sword for use as a thrusting weapon against knightly plate armor. Wielding this blade with two hands greatly increased the probability of scoring a hit in the enemy's weak spot. Our German long sword features a hilt with a striking design: the meander incised in the crossguard is repeated in the pear-shaped pommel. The wooden grip is wrapped in smooth, brown leather for increased control and comfort.

    Our German Longsword comes with a brown leather scabbard including a mount and chape.

  • Late Medieval Arming Sword - Malta Sword

    This late medieval arming sword echoes this change in standards. The long, tapered shape of the blade represents the beginnings of a larger development that would lead to pure thrusting weapons such as the rapier. Whereas the hilt figures squarely in the high medieval tradition of classical knight swords, the cross engraving on the pommel evokes a Christian worldview. The diagonal fluting of the leather wrapped around the grip keeps the sword secure in your hand. The steel cross-guard bends upward.

    A sturdy brown scabbard of leather with chape and throat as well as a leather frog allow you to carry the sword with style and ease.

    The best metalsmiths from Windlass Steelcrafts have spent hours on each blade, hand forging the high carbon steel for optimal balance, quickness and durability.

  • Oakeshott Sword XIV

    This short sword belongs to the group of swords that Oakeshott classified as XIV type. Widespread in the Late Middle Ages, they were primarily designed to be used against opponents wearing armor. The blade is characteristically wide at the base and ends in an acute point. In conjunction with the dramatic, wheel-shaped pommel, the fuller ensures outstanding balance and a surprisingly low weight. The grip of our XIV medieval short sword is made of wood wrapped with leather. Its wheel pommel is riveted and has a cavity at the center with space for an insignia or jewel. This XIV medieval short sword comes with a scabbard.

  • Sword of Cortenuova

    1 Review(s)

    When the Lombard League evaluated its chances, it forgot to count Frederick II in. The cities in northern Italian Lombardy officially belonged to the Holy Roman Empire, but had not been happy with the emperor for decades. They had been able to assert their sovereignty over the predecessors of Frederick II, but probably went too far when they blocked the emperor's troops from coming through on their way to the Holy Land and refused to recognize his rights a few years later. In 1237, he fought the decisive Battle of Cortenuova that ended in ignoble defeat for the Italians.

    Our Cortenuova sword was designed with this epoch and the illustrations of that historic battle in mind. The wide steel blade with an equally wide fuller is well balanced by the brass hilt. In conjunction with the leather-wrapped wooden grip, the riveted, type I wheel pommel and convex crossguard create a simple but elegant unit. Our Cortenuova sword comes with a black leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

    Total length: 96.5 cm
    Blade length: 80.5 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.42 kg
