  • Medieval Transitional Helm

    1 Review(s)

    Our kalota with face guard is a handsome example of the continuous development and improvement of helmets in the Middle Ages. This kalota replica (type of early great helm) with a menacing face guard provides much more protection than a simple bowl with a Spartan nose guard.

    It gets its strength from its material: 18 gauge steel. You can adjust the leather liner to fit your head perfectly, and you fasten it securely under your chin using a leather strap and buckle. The kalota helmet: protection and wearing comfort in one.

    Inner Circumference: 66cm

  • Spartan Lakonia Short Sword

    7 Review(s)

    The Spartans developed a short sword that is extraordinarily effective in close combat. The leaf-shaped, double-edged blade has an acute point and is well balanced due to the combination of the short, downward curving crossguard and bronze grip.

    Our Spartan short sword dates from around 500 BC and includes a leather-covered scabbard made of wood. The metal band has rings so you can attach the sword and scabbard to a belt. This Spartan sword is based on the one illustrated in "The Spartan Army," a book by Nicholas Sekunda with illustrations by Richard Hook.

    Total length: 50 cm
    Blade length: 36 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm

  • American Revolutionary War Sabre

    2 Review(s)

    Dated to around 1775, the prototype for this handsome sabre is pictured in "Swords & Blades of the American Revolution," a book by George C. Neumann that is very popular with collectors and sword fans. The single-edged, subtly curved blade has two fullers. A narrow, deep fuller almost runs along the entire length of the blade. The other one is shorter, shallower, and much wider. Because of them, this amazing saber weighs less than one kilogram.

    Nevertheless, our American Revolutionary War sabre is perfectly balanced for delivering mighty cuts: like most powerful cutting weapons, it is slightly top-heavy. The spiraling wooden grip is comfortable and easy to control, and the knuckle bow provides added hand protection.

    Total length: 100.5 cm
    Blade length: 86 cm

    Grip length: 10 cm 
    Weight: 0.95 kg 
    Blade thickness (base): 4.7 mm 
    Blade width (base): 3.3 cm 
    Point of Balance (PoB): 19 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

  • Confederate Sabre

    2 Review(s)

    Our Confederate saber would have been primarily used by soldiers riding for famous generals like Jeb Stuart, Wade Hampton and Nathan Bedford Forrest. They taught the Yankees the meaning of fear. This Confederate saber is lightweight (approx. 1 kg) and manageable. The back is relatively broad up to the center of percussion (CoP), which makes the blade extremely stable. And the fuller, which also stops at the CoP, is responsible for the reduced weight and resulting manageability.

    The blade curves more acutely as it nears the point, which magnifies the saber's cutting power. An accurate reproduction of a historical weapon (s. William Albaugh, "Confederate Edged Weapons", p. 137), the hand guard, the pommel, and even the wire wrapped around the brown leather that covers the grip are made of brass.

    Total length: 100.5 cm
    Blade length: 86 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 1.02 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.6 mm

    Blade width (base): 3 cm
    Blade width (base): 2.5 cm

  • Battlecry Arkansas Toothpick

    The classic knife of the American frontier, with a modern finish on the blade, pommel and guard. This knife was designed to be big, intimidating, and effective against threats existing in the American wilderness - 4 or 2-legged. The long, thin blade is designed for quickness and forged from 1075 high carbon steel and arrives sharp right out of the box. The blade has a wide, continuous tang for strength and durability that is peened at the pommel. The handle is classically coffin-shaped and stained a stealthy deep black/brown.

    Designed specifically to be used with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang, and tempering to a low 50s 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 belt sheath, and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

    Total length: 49cm
    Blade length: 47 cm
    Blade Material: 1075 High Carbon Steel

  • Monk's Robe - Red

    The roomy monk's robe is made of thick, coarsely woven cotton dyed rusty red (to symbolize guilt and sin) to contrast with the grey and black usually associated with monk's habits. The simple look underscores the power and religious superiority of its wearer, and the generously cut cowl adds a touch of mystery.

    The very wide, long robe (length approx. 152 cm from the shoulder seam to the hem) is belted with a matching red sash. The monk`s costume also provides protection from unpleasant weather.
