  • Roman Pompeii Gladius

    This sword ("gladius" in Latin) was found in Pompeii, Italy and has a straight, 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 entire hilt, including the grip, is made of selected hardwood: ash and maple, to be precise. The guard prevents your hand from slipping down 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 Pompeii type gladius.

    Blade length: 51 cm 
    Grip length: 8.5 cm

  • 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

  • Runic Long Seax

    The runic alphabet is etched across its blade. The Vikings believed runes possessed magical power and often inscribed them onto weapons to increase power.

    The etching runs along the spine of the high carbon steel blade. The leather-wrapped handle gives you a firm grip on this surprisingly light and quick weapon. The Runic Long Seax comes with a brown leather scabbard and two back-belt hanging straps.

  • US Navy Cutlass M1860

    1 Review(s)

    Starting in 1860, US Navy M1860 cutlasses were manufactured for the US Navy in Chicopee, MA. They continued to be used after the Civil War broke out. Our replica has the marks you would expect to see on an original: "USN DR 1862" and "AMESMFGCO CHICOPEE MASS" to show that the cutlass is military issue and who manufactured it.

    Heavily influenced by the sabre used by the French navy, our US Navy Cutlass M1860 is a replica of the model that replaced the M1841. The slightly curved blade has a wide fuller that ends in the area of the point where the broad backstops and the false edge begins. The blade geometry of the M1860 makes it extraordinarily light. Held in place by a riveted pommel and the full knuckle bow at the hand guard, the wooden grip of this naval cutlass is covered in leather and wrapped with twisted, golden wire. It includes a leather scabbard with a frog for holding the scabbard.

    Total length: 80 cm
    Blade length: 65.5 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm
    Weight: 0.86 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.3 mm
    Blade width (base): 3.1 cm
    Point of Balance (PoB): 11 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Brass

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