  • Greek Spearhead

    1 Review(s)

    Only with an excellent spear tip like this one a spear is brought to life. With its weight, the blade made of hardened carbon steel promotes not only the punching force, but also its flight behaviour itself. The hollow area of ​​the Greek spear tip extends in the form of the slightly conical spout over a length of approximately 11 cm. In combination with the two existing lateral holes, the best prerequisites for a secure connection of the Greek spear tip with the shaft (not supplied) are thus provided.

    Length: 41cm
    Blade Length: 28cm
    Blade Width: 7cm
    Weight: 567g

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

  • Gladiator - The Spaniard Helmet

It is lined with leather and also features an adjustable liner for optimal fit and wearing comfort.

  • Danish Hand Axe

    In the ranks of the Huscarls, the bodyguard of Scandinavian nobles and kings, axes of various sizes were a very popular weapon. The Huscarls often used the Danish axe with their left hand to attack the side of the enemy not protected by a shield. Pictures of the Danish axe can be found, for example, on the Bayeux Tapestry and date to the second half of the 11th century.

    Smaller beard axes such as this Danish hand axe had evolved from Francisca and served the Huscarls primarily as devastating throwing axes, but were also used in close combat. A distinctive feature is the relatively long blade cutting, which tapers sharply towards the shaft. The blade encloses the shaft made of wood and is riveted to it. The shaft is largely straight but is widened at the lower end towards the blade, which improves the handling discreetly.

    Length: 53cm
    Weight: 680g

  • Sgian Dubh

    The sgian dubh or Scottish black knife became fashionable in the mid-1700s. It is also called a Scottish sock knife because people carried them in their hose or boots. The Disarming Acts, enacted for the purpose of disarming Catholic rebels in their Scottish nests, prohibited Highlanders from owning or carrying weapons. They were forced to conceal the weapons they secretly kept.

    This traditional sgian dubh features a black wooden grip with a basketweave pattern that is shaped for grasping, and comes with its own scabbard. The blade has the filework characteristic of Scottish edged weapons, and the hilt is decorated with a thistle motif.

    Total length: 16.5 cm
    Blade length: 8.5 cm
    Grip length: 6 cm
    Weight: 0.06 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.7 mm

    Edge: Blunt

    Our Horse Lords' Helmet has a protective aventail at the back, and the decorative crest is made of genuine horsehair. You can adjust the leather liner to make the helmet more comfortable to wear, and you can fasten it securely under your chin using the leather strap and buckle. Regardless of what the horse is doing, this helmet will stay on every mounted archer's head! Made from 18 gauge carbon steel.

  • Roman Maintz Gladius

    1 Review(s)

    This sword ("gladius" in Latin) found in Mainz, Germany and has a leaf-shaped, double-edged blade. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat.

    The light, faux ivory grip is characteristic of this type of gladius and the guard prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade after a strong thrust. The ample, ball-shaped pommel keeps your hand on the grip after strong cuts. A scabbard with ornamental brass applications comes with this Mainz type gladius.

    Total length: 70 cm
    Blade length: 50.5 cm
    Grip length: 9 cm
    Weight: 0.77 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
    Blade width (base): 5.5 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 9 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Threaded
    Scabbard: Wood, leather, brass

  • Assassin's Creed Lionheart Surcoat

    In the days of the Crusades, most knights wore surcoats as protection against the sun as well as a form of identification on the battlefield.

    The shining lions on this surcoat identify the man wearing it as one of Richard the Lionheart's knights, for example. Since the award-winning "Assassin's Creed" video game is set during the Third Crusade, you will often see this distinctive surcoat in the course of the game. Surcoats are typically sleeveless, and our original Assassin's Creed Lionheart surcoat is no exception. It is made of 100 percent cotton with armholes edged in wide, golden trim. Below the hips, this original Assassin's Creed surcoat is slit for more freedom of movement – on horseback and on foot.
