  • Agincourt War Sword

    Combining versatility with utility, the dexterity and lightness of the Agincourt betrays a dangerous fighting blade of respected martial utility. With a 1065 high carbon steel blued patina, it’s well protected from the frequent rust spots and stains that occur so often from everyday practice and exposure to the elements. The battle-hardened finish had an extra wide tang and is tempering to a low 50's RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process. One could easily envision English long-bowmen and knights alike wielding this blackened blade on the fields of the famous and disastrous battle honoured in the naming of this sword.

  • Maldon Viking Sword

    3 Review(s)

    The Maldon Viking sword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a light, agile and resilient fighting blade that captures nearly everything that made this style such a formidable and near legendary design. Created to deal with shields, mail and thick fur or leather armour, it was more than a match for any hand-weapon of its day. Its semi-rounded point was capable of forcefully biting into targets without snagging or catching while its well-honed edge, neither too wide nor too narrow, enabled the widest possible array of single-hand combination blows. Its snub-hilt with distinct lobed-pommel gave the wielder a snug grip facilitating a quick center-of-rotation easily manipulated for exceptionally versatile action. With its capacity for delivering rapid single-handed strikes, it was ideal for fighting armed with a shield but also highly effective when matched with a sax or even a hand-axe.

  • Acre Crusader Broadsword

    1 Review(s)

    This medieval Acre Crusader Broadsword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a formidable weapon of proven worth. This classic knightly sword was an idea for sword and shield or sword and buckler combat whether on foot or horseback. The Acre crusader sword is a stout and fearsome blade that takes advantage of its heft, width, and centre and gravity to deliver deadly slashing cuts and hacking blows as well as thrusts.

    With a wide cross-guard of over 8" it's no sword for the soft hearted or weak-spirited. Its practical cruciform hilt with single-hand grip and disc pommel was to be the functional model for countless other sword styles to follow.

    Overall Length: 100cm
    Blade Length: 83cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Weight: 1530g

  • Bosworth Longsword

    5 Review(s)

    A beautifully proportioned weapon with dynamic handling qualities, it is a harmony of mass and dimension. With a long, semi-tapered diamond cross-section fitted to a round ergonomic pommel on a double-handed grip, this is a fine example of the perfection that was achieved in this popular design. Against any opposing arms or armour it was capable of quick deadly cuts as well as accurate and forceful thrusts. Aptly named for the bloody late 15th-century battle during the War of the Roses, the Bosworth is a fast and capable warsword adeptly able to execute the deadly “Mastercut” techniques so closely associated with double-handed blades of the period. With a slim handle that virtually begs to be gripped in the diverse and effective winding actions that this kind of sword ideally allowed, it features a surprisingly small heft for its size. This ebony-toned “queen of weapons” is perfectly suited to foot-combat in war, judicial duel or knightly challenge. This is a substantial and graceful weapon that will leave the wielder every confidence it could readily defend life if called upon. Discover with it just why this form of longsword was respected for centuries and celebrated against whatever it encountered.

    Overall Length: 120cm
    Blade Length: 92cm
    Blade Width: 4cm
    Weight: 1304g
    Point of Balance: 10cm Below Hilt
    Blade: 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Sharp
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Wood, Leather, Steel

  • Swept Hilt Rapier

    This swept hilt rapier was quite popular in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Our version is hand forged by the skilled artisans at Windlass Steelcrafts and has a blade of high carbon steel with a diamond cross-section. This gives the blade firmness, yet allowing it to be flexible in action. The all-steel guard and ornate pommel are accented with a real bleached, polished bone grip. Includes a full leather scabbard with steel throat and shoe.

    This was one of our most popular rapiers for a number of years and was retired years ago. We are proud to bring back this elegant sword by popular demand for a limited time as one of our Windlass Classics.

    NOTE: Bone is a natural product and may have slight variations from the photo shown, giving each handle a unique "one of a kind" finish.

    Overall Length: 111cm
    Blade Length: 98cm
    Blade Width: 2cm
    Weight: 964g
    Grip Length: 9.5cm
    Material: 1055 High Carbon Steel
