  • Gladiator - The Spaniard Helmet

    We have "Gladiator," (the Oscar-winning, epic movie by director Ridley Scott) to thank for this exciting, original licensed helmet. In the movie, Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) fighting as the Spaniard wore it in the arena.

It is lined with leather and also features an adjustable liner for optimal fit and wearing comfort. With the help of leather straps and metal buckles, you can fasten our Gladiator The Spaniard helmet under your chin.

  • The Eagle - Eagle Head Gladius

    This official gladius is a detail-rich replica of the eagle sword from the movie. Of tempered carbon steel, the blade tapers from the cross guard into a kind of waistline, widening again before the point. This style of blade was named after Mainz, Germany, its place of discovery, and is the highest quality variant of the Roman gladius. The leaf-shaped Mainz blade was sturdier, heaver and better balanced than the Pompeii and Hispanicum styles. Officers in particular were equipped with this kind of gladius.

    You can tell from the elaborate decoration of this gladius that this isn't a mere legionary sword. The finely crafted grip with decorative patterns ends seamlessly in the sculptural eagle head – by far the most distinctive feature on this exceptional sword. Covered with dark leather, the wooden scabbard boasts richly decorated metal plates. The relief on the chape shows a ruler surrounded by soldiers, and depicted on the throat is a legionary standing in front of a Roman temple. On the central plates there are classical Roman laurel vines completed by a laurel wreath insignia in the middle of the scabbard. A leather shoulder strap is attached with metal rings to the scabbard. All metal parts have been artificially antiqued to give the Eagle Head Gladius an especially battle-tested look.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Sticklestad Viking Sword

    1 Review(s)

    On July 29, 1030, Christian King Olaf and his men faced the mighty army of their heathen opponents – which was double the size – on the battlefield at Stiklestad in Norway (90 km north of Trondheim). Olaf fell, but his army was victorious. The Christianization of Norway could begin!

    The wonderful Viking sword now called Sticklestad was the type used at this famous battle. It was as effective for cuts as it was for thrusts, which means it was the perfect sword for close combat. The wide fuller on both sides makes this edged weapon lightweight. The sword handles like an extension of your arm. The wooden grip is wrapped in suede for better manageability and it comes with a handsome, matching scabbard. The copper-filled pattern on the crossguard and five-lobed pommel give the hilt of our Sticklestad Viking sword a squat, powerful look.

    Total length: 94 cm
