  • 5 Lobe Viking Sword

    Certain Viking swords that have become famous were splendidly decorated or have some other special feature. Those weapons belonged to high ranking warriors or kings, but what about the simple fighters, the mass of Vikings whose reputation struck fear into the hearts of Europe? Our sword is designed for the hordes, the common warriors. It is a well-balanced weapon without a lot of extra features, simple and effective, just like it should be. The wooden grip is wrapped in black leather. The slightly curved pommel combined with the 5-lobed crossguard of high-quality steel makes this sword a classic type VI in Wheeler's Viking sword typology. Comes complete with a leather scabbard.

  • Deschaux Rapier

    A weapon unequalled in elegance and grace: the classic French rapier. The slender, double-edged blade determines the character of this classic rapier, whose ricasso elegantly becomes narrower inside the basket. But the complex basket with its sweeping finger guard is not the only special feature this classic rapier has to offer: the grip is bordered by braided steel wire on both sides. The grip itself is made of horn wrapped with golden wire for a stunning effect. When used with a French parrying dagger, this classic rapier forms part of a deadly set that was especially appreciated by duellists. Our classic French rapier comes with its own scabbard.

  • Oakeshott Sword XIV

    This short sword belongs to the group of swords that Oakeshott classified as XIV type. Widespread in the Late Middle Ages, they were primarily designed to be used against opponents wearing armor. The blade is characteristically wide at the base and ends in an acute point. In conjunction with the dramatic, wheel-shaped pommel, the fuller ensures outstanding balance and a surprisingly low weight. The grip of our XIV medieval short sword is made of wood wrapped with leather. Its wheel pommel is riveted and has a cavity at the center with space for an insignia or jewel. This XIV medieval short sword comes with a scabbard.

  • Munich Town Watch Rapier

    Our Munich Town Watch Rapier has a relatively wide blade, which makes it ideal for both functions. It is a replica of a rapier type found in many museums today: in the Munich Armory, the Bavarian Army Museum in Ingolstadt, Germany or catalogue number A612 in the Wallace Collection, for example. Made around 1600, this rapier has a strong, tapering blade hand forged from carbon steel with a narrow ricasso inside the finger ring. Its elegant complex basket has side guard rings and a knuckle bow. The hardwood grip is elaborately wrapped with iron wire with braided wire at the ends. A riveted pommel shaped like a flattened ball completes the hilt. This Munich Town Watch Rapier includes a black leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

  • Sword of Tancred

    Prince Tancred (known in French as Tancrède de Hauteville) was a Norman lord of Southern Italy who was among the first noblemen to join the Crusades in 1096. He saw considerable victories on this bloody campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he acquired the title Prince of Galilee. Our exquisite Sword of Tancred has been researched from this legendary knight’s adventures. 

    The pommel has a representation of the red Nurit flower of Galilee on the one side, while the opposite is adorned with the crusader cross, which Tancred adopted during the Crusades. The hard wooden handle has been covered with soft, deep brown stitched leather, accented with antique brass details. The imposing 2" wide blade has a deep fuller running the length, giving great balance to this mighty sword. Included is a period stitched scabbard in matching brown suede with long leather belt.

  • Hattin Falchion

    The Hattin follows one of the more popular Medieval falchions, such as the famed Conyer’s falchion, with a surprisingly manoeuvrable convex shape matched to a classic cruciform hilt. Throughout the history of war and fencing, these robust weapons filled a much-needed role for a short powerful blade. A true working man's weapon, the falchion served as a kind of “temperate zone machete” as well as a fearsome tool of war. While sometimes lacking the cut to thrust versatility and warding capacity of a straight double-edged arming sword, it made up for it with a robust design that permitted viciously powerful blows.

    Overall Length: 77cm
    Blade Length: 61cm
    Blade Width: 5.7cm
    Weight: 1304g
    Point of Balance: 12cm Below Hilt
    Blade: 1065 High Carbon
    Edge: Sharpened
    Pommel: Peened
