Windlass

The Knight Shop is a distributor for Windlass Steelcrafts and the premier retailer of Windlass Swords for sale in the UK.

Windlass Swords (Windlass Steelcrafts), are based in India and are one of the oldest sword manufacturers still in production.  They were established in 1943 to supply kukris to the British Army.

Over the decades they have expanded to become one of the largest suppliers of military swords in the world. They are also well known for making high quality licensed replicas of swords, armour and historical clothing seen in Hollywood movies.

Their swords are forged from high quality, high carbon steel and tempered with the most advanced heat treating process available. They are flexible, well balanced and lightweight making them ideal for practicing historical swordplay techniques.

  • Texas Bowie Knife

    Its special feature is the blade: the upper third of its back is curved to bring the point somewhat closer to the sharp edge. Unlike other models, this Bowie knife does not have a false edge. Thanks to the symmetrical horn grip (which actually makes this knife a type of dagger), it is very comfortable to hold. The distinctive handguard has a simple look but is extremely effective at keeping your hand on the grip.

    It comes with a leather scabbard with a loop so it can be attached to belts with a maximum width of 12 cm.

  • Alamo Bowie Knife

    Between 1835 and 1836, Texans fought for their independence from Mexico. The most famous battle of the war centred around The Alamo, which was a missionary station that had been turned into a fort.

    This knife is the exciting replica of a Bowie knife exhibited in the Alamo museum. Its blade has a number of unusual features: it curves to an extreme point and a plate of shining brass encases the back. In matching brass, the ends of the crossguard curve gracefully in opposite directions. The genuine wooden grip is straight at the side of the back but on the side of the sharp edge, it is slightly wavy for an improved grip. Our Alamo Bowie knife comes with a matching sheath in brown leather.

    Total length: 47 cm
    Blade length: 30 cm
    Grip length: 13 cm
    Weight: 0.53 kg

  • Civil War D-Guard Bowie Knife

    1 Review(s)

    Most Bowie knife blades are shaped differently than this one – it actually has more in common with a cavalry sabre or a machete. But the term "Bowie knife" has become almost generic for longer, fixed knives, and knives like this South Civil War Bowie knife with knuckle bow were used from the earliest days of the War between the States. Our Bowie knife with a knuckle bow has a hand forged, single-edged carbon steel blade with a long ridge and a false edge that takes up between one-third and one-half of the blade. This knife has a full tang that is riveted securely to the knuckle bow. The grip is made of hardwood. This South Civil War Bowie knife with knuckle bow comes with a leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

    Total length: 57 cm
    Blade length: 45 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 0.61kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.6 mm
    Blade width (base): 4.0 cm
    Edge: Sharp
    Scabbard: Leather

The handle is bone and Sissoo, a North Indian hardwood. The subtle contouring is very comfortable and feels like an extension of your hand.

    Includes leather belt sheath. Comes in a faux fur lined box. A great all-around knife for any outdoor task.

    Length: 20cm
    Blade: 9.5cm
