  • 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

  • British Light Cavalry Sabre - 1796 Pattern

    3 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.

    Blade Material: 1080 High Carbon Steel

  • Landsknecht Katzbalger Sword

    The flamboyantly dressed German Landsknecht mercenary lived a harsh, brutal life and was famous for their giant, two-hand Flamberge sword. After using the Flamberge to break an enemy's row of front-line pikemen, a smaller, one-hand sword was employed for the ensuing close-quarters combat - the Katzbalger. 

    Carried by all Landsknecht troops, including the pikemen and arquebusiers, this sword had an ornate "closed s" shaped guard and an extra long, fluted pommel. The Katzbalger was most assuredly respectful of its Renaissance roots.

    Our replica is just as battle ready as the originals. The beautifully rendered grip would do any Landskecht proud. The fluting in the pommel extends seamlessly into the wood grip, and the guard is expertly spiral-twisted and terminates in half-spheres. The tempered, high-carbon steel blade is adorned with a trio of fullers that slightly lighten the blade.

    The black leather scabbard is mildly decorated with leather bands that criss-cross and are knotted near the throat and has a unique steel tip. 

    Total length: 90 cm
    Blade length: 74 cm
    Grip length: 9 cm
    Weight: 1.2 kg
    Blade width: 3.3 cm
    Blade: 1075 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Sharp
    Scabbard: Leather & Steel Tip

  • Roman Spiculus Gladius

    Windlass has designed this gladius to be true to the period, but worthy of a champion (of course, a plain gladius was the sword carried by all rank-and-file legionnaires). The sharp carbon steel blade is extra-long for extra reach in the critical moments of mortal combat. Despite the extra length, this sword still feels light and extra lively in the hand. The faux bone grip contrasts handsomely with the dark-stained wooden pommel and guard.

    The scabbard is crafted true to historical construction - wooden and wrapped with reddish-brown stained leather. Gold-plated hardware makes this scabbard a treat for the eyes and features relief images of a lion and gladiator. The pommel of the sword is capped with a gold-plated leaf overlay

    Overall Length: 79cm
    Blade Length: 61cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Blade Thickness: 8mm
    Blade Material: 1075 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Sharp

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.
