  • 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.

  • Templar “Heater” Shield

    1 Review(s)

    Our Templar Heater Shield is made of curved wood and is covered with sturdy canvas on both sides. The shield has two crossed hand grips made of leather at the back and a long leather arm strap that you hold under tension to keep the shield close to your body. If you need to drop the shield quickly, simply let go of the leather strap (as described in the "Manesse Codex.") Another long strap allows you to carry the shield on your back, and it has a padded arm rest for extra protection against hard blows.

    The simple black & white design painted on the outside of the shield probably signifies the Templar knights: white stands for chivalry and purity.

    Height: 65cm
    Width: 57cm

  • European Spearhead

    The weight of the tempered carbon steel blade benefits the penetrating force of your classic European spear, and has a positive impact on its flight characteristics as well. It has a slightly conical socket that is approx. 13 cm long. The spearhead has a hole at each side so you can securely fasten it to the shaft of your choice (not included).

    This spearhead design is especially versatile: it was used for centuries all over Europe. We also offer spearheads with 3mm edges suitable for re-enactment.

    Total Length: 41cm

  • Pirate Captain's Hanger

    On board ship, weapons were usually kept under lock and key. Mutinying crew members could have turned angry words into bloody deeds too easily if they were carrying weapons. But the captain had a special role and was of course allowed to have his saber or hanger at his side at all times.

    Our officer hanger has a modestly curved blade with a narrow fuller that extends over three-quarters of the length of the blade. This saber has a one handed grip wrapped in leather. The hand guard includes a crossguard that extends toward the pommel. The ball-shaped pommel is decorative, but it also contributes to the balance of our officer hanger, which comes with a scabbard.

    Total length: 83 cm
    Blade length: 66 cm
    Grip length: 10.5 cm
    Weight: 0.98 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.4 mm

  • Scottish Pirate Cutlass

    Pirates greatly appreciated the cutlass for its effectiveness in close combat. Because of its relatively compact dimensions, a cutlass could do quite a bit of damage in the close quarters of a ship's hold, while a strong cut with its broad blade could even sever the mighty ropes of a ship.

    Sometimes the classic cutlass was made with an openwork hilt for ventilation plus hand protection, but the single-edged, wide, curved blade with a distinctive yelman is characteristic of all cutlasses. The grip is wrapped with leather and the rounded pommel is riveted. The accompanying scabbard has a mount and chape made of steel. Circa 1690.

    Total length: 79 cm
    Blade length: 63 cm
    Grip length: 9 cm
    Weight: 1.43 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
    Blade thickness (CoP): 4.3 mm
    Blade width (base): 5.1 cm
    Blade width (CoP): 4.7 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 9 cm
    Centre of Percussion (CoP): 26 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Nut
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

  • Classic Medieval Sword

    1 Review(s)

    A transition from the Viking sword to the classic medieval sword, our medieval sword is probably Oakeshott type X. Swords like this one were very popular for centuries.

    The double-edged, hardly tapered blade has a long, relatively wide fuller which makes it balance very well. The curved, flared crossguard provides lots of protection for your hand. Thanks to its leather covering, the grip is comfortable to grasp. The wheel pommel is riveted. Our classic medieval sword comes with a scabbard.


    Total length: 100 cm
    Blade length: 83.5 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.42 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.1 mm
    Blade thickness (CoP): 3.6 mm
    Blade width (base): 5.1 cm
    Blade width (CoP): 3.8 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 15 cm
    Centre of Percussion (CoP): 20 cm
    Oakeshott type: X
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

  • Roman Pugio Dagger - 2nd Century

    1 Review(s)

    The distinct shape of the Roman Pugio dagger blade was excellent for close quarters fighting, and was used throughout the legions. Although swords and knives were generally not worn by Roman civilians within the boundaries of the "Pax Romana", barbarians and bandits were certainly to be found in the outlands, and a merchant or trader best go armed. No doubt many an old legionnaire must have found it easier to keep his balance with the familiar weight on his hip as he worked his farm in new won territory.

    Our Roman Pugio Dagger is based on finds in the British Museum collection. The wood hilt is paired with a fully tempered high carbon steel blade. Comes complete with a wood scabbard covered in leather with brass parts.

    Total length: 49.5 cm
    Blade length: 31 cm
    Grip length: 9 cm
    Weight: 0.39 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.8 mm
    Blade width (base): 4.5 cm
    Edge: Blunt
    Scabbard: Wood, Leather and Brass
