  • 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
    Blade thickness (base): 4.7 mm
    Blade width (base): 5 cm
    Edge: Blunt
    Scabbard: Leather

  • 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.

    Total length: 49 cm
    Blade length: 35 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm
    Weight: 0.69 kg

  • Ulfberht Viking Sword

    An old legend has it that a Nordic smith named Ulfberht developed the first all steel blade. This crucial development achieved near-mythical status among warriors, making this one of the most important swords in the study of medieval weapons. Several of these blades from slightly different time periods exist, some engraved in gratitude and reverence with Ulfberht’s hallowed name. 

    The etchings on both sides of our blade are copied exactly so that our reproduction is identical, warts and all. Made of high carbon steel (actually better than the original) it is beautifully balanced. The grip is wood wrapped with leather. The stout crossguard is steel and the pommel is of the Brazil nut shape that was quite popular at the time, both with Vikings and the rest of Europe. A beautiful and important sword. Comes with scabbard.

    Overall Length: 91cm
    Blade Length: 77cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Weight: 1360g
    Blade: 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Sharp
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Wood, Leather, Steel

  • Asgard Axe and Knife Box Set

    Here's a gorgeous set of "belt tools" inspired by Norse mythology, attractively stored in an "Asgard Creations" gift/display box.

    The axe is wrapped in leather and faux fur. The hardwood handle is replete with nordic runes: Raido (journey), Fehu (wealth), Wunjo (joy), Ehwaz (movement), Naudiz (need), Eihwaz (defense), Teiwaz (warrior), Othila (separate), and Thuisaz (giant). The high carbon steel head is forged from 1055 carbon steel and struck with additional Viking symbols and is thick enough for serious chopping and has a sharp edge.

    The knife features a raven head pommel, the guard, and the pommel have a rough-forged finish that looks fresh out of the dwarves' smithy. The carbon steel blade comes sharpened and is easy to resharpen after you've used it for a while. The spine of the blade makes this knife suitable for mild chopping as well as precise cutting. This is a medium-sized knife with a generous handle. The grip is high-quality leather wrapped around a full tang and the raised laces do a superb job of providing a secure grasp in wet situations. Includes leather belt sheath. 

    The rustic wooden box has leather straps to secure the axe and knife for carrying.

  • British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1796 Pattern

    4 Review(s)

    Designed by Major-General John Gaspard Le Marchant, the 1796 pattern light cavalry saber was based on Central and Eastern European hussar swords. As a young captain, he observed the clumsy design of the heavy, overly long 1788 Pattern swords. He gave the blade of this saber a pronounced curve, which made it more adept at cavalry attack methods, and designed it with a widened tip that affected the balance, but made slashes far more brutal. It was issued primarily to British light dragoons and hussars and was also used by the King's German Legion light cavalry during the Napoleonic Wars. The blade profile became so popular that the Prussians and other German states emulated its design throughout the 19th century.

    This exact replica of an original antique blade features an extreme distal taper, enabling it to feel exceptionally lively. The blade is hand forged from tough 1080 high carbon steel and spring tempered and arrives fully sharpened.

    The hilt replicates the originals, with a knuckle guard, steel spine, and contoured, ribbed leather grip. Complete with accurately reproduced steel scabbard.

    Weight: 508g
    Total Length: 95cm
    Blade Lenth: 82cm
    Blade Material: 1080 High Carbon Steel
    Blade Width: 3cm
    Edge: Sharp
