The Knight Shop is a distributor for Windlass Steelcrafts and the premier retailer of Windlass Swords for sale in the UK.

Windlass Swords (Windlass Steelcrafts), are based in India and are one of the oldest sword manufacturers still in production.  They were established in 1943 to supply kukris to the British Army.

Over the decades they have expanded to become one of the largest suppliers of military swords in the world. They are also well known for making high quality licensed replicas of swords, armour and historical clothing seen in Hollywood movies.

Their swords are forged from high quality, high carbon steel and tempered with the most advanced heat treating process available. They are flexible, well balanced and lightweight making them ideal for practicing historical swordplay techniques.

Windlass Swords are durable and are either of threaded or peened construction with the tang forged as part of the blade. They are blunt and have a 1mm edge although sharpening service is available on these swords.

  • Frank Miller's 300 Spearhead and Butt Cap

    Our Frank Miller's 300 Spearhead and Butt Cap is an out-of-license replica of the Frank Miller's 300 Spearhead and Butt Cap used by Spartan warriors in the cult movie “300”.

Our Frank Miller's 300 spearhead has a slightly conical socket that is approx. 9.5 cm long.

  • Hawkins Sailor’s Jacket - Wool

    This short jacket is surely the advanced development of a medieval jerkin: the missing collar, broad cut of the shoulders and hip length, straight cut all support that argument. But this jacket is made of brown wool, and the sleeves have wide cuffs. They are even short enough to show foamy lace shirt cuffs. Let's call this brown wool jacket "Baroque" instead, which means it is the perfect apparel for adventure at sea. Shiny metal buttons close the front and decorate the cuffs as the perfect period accent.

  • Titus Pullo Roman Legionary Doublings

    Our Roman Legionary Doublings are out-of-license replica of the armour worn by the Legionary Titus Pullo in the hit HBO series “Rome”. They are manufactured by Windlass Steelcrafts who produced many of the props for the original series.

    Soldiers who wore lorica hamatas (mail shirts) would add extra protection to their shoulders. They placed a U-shaped collar of leather or mail called "doublings" over their shoulders and attached the ends to their mail with four rivets. At the front, the ends were secured with a cord (later, with a large metal hook). Although legionaries wore lorica hamatas from the early Republic until the fall of Rome, doublings went out of fashion toward the end of the 1st century A.D.

    Our legionary doublings are made of blackened iron rings with a thick leather backing.

  • The Christus Imperat Rapier

    2 Review(s)

    A rapier of this identical form and proportions is currently housed in The Royal Armouries (formerly the Tower of London). The flamboyantly formed hilt is both beautiful and functional. Its’ forward plates are pierced and show lavish birds among foliage, while the bars of the guard are slender both defending the hand and having an upward loop to catch an opponent’s blade. The heavy pommel allows for a more balanced feel for fighting. The blade is etched on both sides of the ricasso with the Latin phrase CHRISTUS IMPERAT which means “Christ Commands.”

  • Kingdom of Heaven Sword of Balian of Ibelin

    This Battle of Hattin sword is a typical crusader bastard sword. A translucent red cross is embedded in the octagonal pommel. "MXCIX - DEUS LO VULT" is engraved around the cross which is Latin for the year 1099 when Jerusalem was conquered and the crusaders' motto: God wills it.

    Particularly striking is the grip with its combination of solid wood, leather and braided accents of brass wire. Plated with .925 sterling silver, the cross-guard and pommel are embellished with detailed lion heads.

    Comes complete with a wooden wall mount painted black and silver with cross motif which is a wonderful way to display this impressive bastard sword.
