  • Gurkha Officer's Kukri (Official Spec.)

    3 Review(s)

    Our Officer’s Kukri is manufactured by Windlass Steelcrafts. It is a little smaller than the standard regimental weapon, but its grip is made of natural buffalo horn. The blade of tempered carbon steel came from the same forge that has made the official edged weapons of the Indian Army for years. The officer's model has a short, narrow fuller from the grip to the curve of the blade and the typical cutouts that symbolise the god Shiva's trident. It has a full tang, which is riveted to the brass pommel end.

    This Officer’s Kukri includes a wooden scabbard covered with black buffalo leather and a brass chape. At the back, there are two pockets for the smaller accompanying knives, the karda and chakmak. The holder for the belt loop is removable as required.

    Total length: 35 cm
    Blade length: 25 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 430g
    Blade thickness (base): 0.55 cm
    Blade width (base): 4.0 cm
    Blade width (base): 5.5 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 4.5 cm 
    Length of karda and chakmak: 9 cm
    Edge: Sharp
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Brass

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

    If opting for our sharpening service please be aware that the two small knives will not be sharpened.

  • Stage Combat Rapier

    Stage combat rapiers have to meet different requirements from battle-ready rapiers. In order to minimize the risk of injury from cuts and thrusts during stage combat with fencing weapons, this silver stage combat rapier has back edges that are at least 3 mm thick everywhere and it even has a flattened point. It weighs a little less than a kilogram, so our silver stage combat rapier is light and highly manageable.

    Good balance is not the only characteristic that makes this stage combat rapier manageable – its grip is also very important. Because it is wrapped with both smooth and braided silver-coloured wire, it is especially comfortable to grasp. The delicate knuckle bow and finger guard give this stage combat rapier a graceful, romantic look and also provide finger protection when a technique requires them to be placed above the crossguard. It includes a leather scabbard with a silver-coloured mount and chape.

    Total length: 109 cm
    Blade length: 92.5 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 0.96 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 3.8 mm
    Blade width (base): 1.7 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 11 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

  • Late Middle Ages Jerkin

    People wore jerkins like this one during the Late Middle Ages. This jerkin not only serves as padding to be worn underneath armor, it also makes a handsome outer tunic when worn over a shirt or tunic and breeches.

    This sleeveless version in classic black is made of 100% cotton ribbed velveteen. It is completely padded to make it especially comfortable to wear. The row of functioning buttons goes from the base of the collar to the hips and fastens this black jerkin securely. In combination with its skirt, this form-fitting, elegant garment is cut to emphasize broad, masculine shoulders and dashing sleeves.

    100% cotton.

  • Beowulf Shirt

    - Lightweight 
    - Cotton 
    - Lace-up

    Like so much other Nordic-style and Celtic-style garb, this practical lace up shirt with padded sleeves is made of 100 percent cotton in linen weave. The brown stripes at the elbows form a powerful contrast to the light, unbleached cotton colour, and the lacing at the neckline is playfully repeated on the sleeves. The stand-up collar and sleeves are padded and quilted, which means this lace up shirt is perfect for wearing underneath our Beowulf Leather Jerkin. Or – of course – as standalone outer wear!
