  • Greek Spearhead

    1 Review(s)

    Only with an excellent spear tip like this one a spear is brought to life. With its weight, the blade made of hardened carbon steel promotes not only the punching force, but also its flight behaviour itself. The hollow area of ​​the Greek spear tip extends in the form of the slightly conical spout over a length of approximately 11 cm. In combination with the two existing lateral holes, the best prerequisites for a secure connection of the Greek spear tip with the shaft (not supplied) are thus provided.

    Length: 41cm
    Blade Length: 28cm
    Blade Width: 7cm
    Weight: 567g

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

  • Sgian Dubh

    The sgian dubh or Scottish black knife became fashionable in the mid-1700s. It is also called a Scottish sock knife because people carried them in their hose or boots. The Disarming Acts, enacted for the purpose of disarming Catholic rebels in their Scottish nests, prohibited Highlanders from owning or carrying weapons. They were forced to conceal the weapons they secretly kept.

    This traditional sgian dubh features a black wooden grip with a basketweave pattern that is shaped for grasping, and comes with its own scabbard. The blade has the filework characteristic of Scottish edged weapons, and the hilt is decorated with a thistle motif.

  • Drinking Horn of Ragnar

    Norse epic poetry tells of a fearsome Viking named Ragnar Lodbrok who repeatedly pillaged France and England, but whether he actually existed is a subject of historical debate. Regardless of his authenticity, the Drinking Horn of Ragnar is sure to keep his essence alive and make you feel just as legendary. This beautiful vessel is crafted from a bull horn and features beautiful linear carvings along the outside, all of which were done by hand. The horn comes with a leather belt holster that fits any belt up to three inches wide. Because it is natural, the size and colour of the drinking horn may vary slightly, and it is recommended that the tankard be thoroughly hand-washed before and after each use. The Drinking Horn of Ragnar makes great feastware for Viking-themed dinners and Renaissance fairs.
