  • French Napoleonic Cuirassier Sword - 1801 Pattern

    The French Model 1801 Cuirassier’s sword is a heavy cavalry saber with a straight blade, as the French favored the thrust over slashing or cutting. This replica weighs heavy, the substantial mass needed to accomplish a lance-type thrusting attack.

    The distally tapered blade at the hilt and is double-fullered like the originals. Comes factory sharpened. Brass guard and pommel. Leather-wrapped grip with twisted wire wrap. Steel scabbard.

    Overall Length: 109cm

    Blade Width: 3.5cm
    Blade Material: 1075 High Carbon Steel
    Weight: 1.5kg
    Edge: Sharp
    Scabbard: Steel

  • French Infantry Artillery Short Sword (Glaive)

    The French military based this sword on the famous and effective Roman Gladius, the standard short sword of the Roman Legionnaires. Originally issued in 1816, the solid brass hilt had a grip that resembled fish scales. When the sword was updated and reissued as the Model 1831, the grip was redesigned with a ringed pattern.

    Although it could be used as a combat weapon in a pinch, it was primarily used as a machete to clear fields for guns. Because of its usefulness as an all-around tool, it gained a nick-name, “coupe-chou” (roughly translating to “cabbage cutter”). The Model 1831 remained in service until about 1870, and its design was adapted by the United States to create the Model 1832 Foot Artillery Sword.

    This faithful replica is just like the originals, with a solid brass hilt and a scabbard with a brass tip and throat. Also includes belt frog. Provided with a sharpened edge.

    Overall Length: 64cm
    Blade Length: 49cm
    Blade Width: 4.4cm
    Blade Material: 1075 High Carbon Steel
    Weight: 1.2kg
    Edge: Sharp

  • Langeid Viking Sword

    When a new road was being constructed in the Langeid area of southern Norway's Setesdal valley in 2011, workers discovered an ancient Viking burial ground. Along with coins and a broadaxe, an archaeological team exhumed a startling, unique sword that hadn't seen the light of day for over 10 centuries. Thousands of Viking era swords, in various states of completeness, have been discovered in Norway, but not one of them has an elaborately inscribed hilt like the one exhibited by the weapon they found that day.

    The pommel and downsloping guard are emblazoned with gold and copper, displaying a mixture of Latin characters, Christian and runic symbols whose exact meanings are lost to time, with some characters apparently reversed for the sake of symmetry. The top of the pommel in portrays a hand holding a cross, possibly representing the hand of Jesus or God. 

    This faithful replica is a fully functioning sword with a carbon steel blade that's battle capable like the original. The pommel and guard are made of iron and silver-plated like the original, and the markings are emblazoned in real gold and copper. We've widened the grip slightly for the sake of comfort, but the wire-wrapping is twisted in the same patterns that a prominent Viking hand wielded centuries ago.

    The original scabbard had long since deteriorated, so we created one of high-quality leather and laser-engraved it with a pattern created from the pommel imagery. The scabbard comes with its own belt.

    Overall Length: 99cm
    Blade Length: 81cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Blade Thickness: 0.6cm
    Blade Material: 1080 High Carbon Steel
    Weight: 907g

  • Musketeer Rapier

    The musket, though the prime weapon of the French Musketeers, was a cumbersome firearm, both to load and fire. A good rapier was a necessary second weapon. Our Musketeer rapier is fashioned after those circa 1590.

    The basket hilt is ambidextrous and a very effective mix of both the cup-hilt and swept-hilt styles. The grip is wood wrapped with twisted wire and the parts of the hilt are plated with gleaming nickel silver.

    Total length: 117 cm
    Blade length: 96 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.27 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.9 mm

    Blade width (base): 2.5 cm
    Blade width (CoP): 1.6 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 8 cm
    Centre of Percussion (CoP): 20 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel

  • Royal Armouries 15th Century Longsword

    The Windlass Sword Collection is brought to you as a collaboration between the Royal Armouries, Windlass Steelcrafts and sword expert Matt Easton. You may have heard of Matt Easton through his YouTube channel, where he has rightly gained a wide and passionate following of enthusiasts who appreciate his expansive knowledge of swordsmanship. Matt had been searching for a set of medieval swords to recreate, with each minute detail and measurement captured. Naturally, he came to the Royal Armouries, home of the UK’s national collection of arms and armour to make this selection.  

    This new collection comprises a set of six historical swords, manufactured by Windlass Steelcrafts. Using the finest steel and materials, forged by the most skilled craftsmen, the Windlass Sword Collection is truly history brought to life. Every aspect of the original artefact has been considered in production, to deliver the most authentic experience. Whether it be the weight, proportion or feeling in the hand, the Windlass Collection Swords are replicas in a class of their own. 

    This replica is a reproduction of an article found in the Royal Armouries, a sword believed to have been found in the River Thames before finding its way into the Tower of London collection and dating to around 1400-1430, this is the sort of hand-and-a-half sword that was often carried by knights and men-at-arms, and it features a two-handed hilt with the scent-stopper pommel.

    This sword strikes with authority, despite the narrow appearance. This is due to the surprisingly thick spine for most of the length of the blade, making it very stiff, and ideally suited to half-swording and thrusting into things like mail voiders at the armpits of an enemy knight’s armor. This replica is crafted with a is hand forged by a skilled blacksmith exactly in the same manner as the original, but with superior modern 1080 high carbon steel that is fully tempered and is distally tapered for proper weight distribution. The sheath is made to replicate one of the period, with a wood body and covered with leather. The tip is reinforced with a brass chape that features a traditional cut-out.

    Total Length: 118cm
    Blade Length: 93cm
    Guard Width: 26cm
    Blade Width: 3.4cm
    Blade Thickness: 1cm
    Weight: 1.6kg

    Each sword comes in a unique sword box, a certificate of authenticity, and Windlass Classic Wax and polishing cloth.

  • King Henry V Sword

    This sword from Windlass Steelcrafts is a precise replica of the iconic sword of Henry V. Like the original, it’s a relatively short weapon, designed for fast cutting and thrusting. The blade is slightly hollow ground and the edge is sharpened at the factory. It’s beautifully balanced and feels lively in the hand. The pommel is hollow like the original and is appropriately gold plated in the recesses, and has red enamel crosses emblazoned on each side (we used enamel instead of paint for the sake of durability).

    An accurate, fully functional replica of a true battle sword once used by the king of England. A design with just enough flair for a sense of elegance, but no doubt a pragmatic, effective cutting weapon. Includes top-grain leather scabbard and belt.

    Overall Length: 86cm
    Blade Length: 68cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Blade Thickness: 0.5cm
    Weight: 1.2kg
    Material: 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Scabbard: Leather

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