  • Jambiya Curved Dagger

    A jambiya is the traditional curved dagger that you find wherever the Arabic culture flourishes. It represents a status symbol for the man wearing it, and is most often worn on a belt.

    Status aside, thanks to its elegantly curved, double-edged blade a jambiya is a very efficient weapon. The center rib that runs from the crossguard to the point on both sides is designed to give this dagger an extraordinarily high degree of stability. The beautiful hardwood grip is waisted and decorated on both sides with sun-shaped metal plates to underscore the distinctive look of this curved dagger. It comes with a leather-covered wooden scabbard.

  • Assassin's Creed Lionheart Surcoat

    In the days of the Crusades, most knights wore surcoats as protection against the sun as well as a form of identification on the battlefield.

    The shining lions on this surcoat identify the man wearing it as one of Richard the Lionheart's knights, for example. Since the award-winning "Assassin's Creed" video game is set during the Third Crusade, you will often see this distinctive surcoat in the course of the game. Surcoats are typically sleeveless, and our original Assassin's Creed Lionheart surcoat is no exception. It is made of 100 percent cotton with armholes edged in wide, golden trim. Below the hips, this original Assassin's Creed surcoat is slit for more freedom of movement – on horseback and on foot.

  • 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.

    Total length: 76.3 cm
    Blade length: 50.3 cm
    Grip length: 11 cm
    Weight: 0.77 kg

  • Medieval Bar Mace

    This staff-shaped mace is a simple weapon. It may lack a certain degree of elegance, but its massive solidity more than makes up for that. And it is very easy to use: pick it up by the wooden grip and start landing blows. When this medieval Italian mace gets going, neither sword nor armor nor bones are safe. Form follows function in this case: it destroys everything it comes into contact with. This mace is nothing less than the advanced development of the club and was used by hosts of foot soldiers and fighting farmers throughout Europe.

    Our special model is based on a mace found during excavations on the Thames River. It features a two handed grip made of wood wrapped with a double layer of leather and a pommel to balance out the weight of the crossed steel plates.

    Total length: 74 cm
    Head length: 51.5 cm
    Grip length: 18 cm
    Width (base): 2.9 cm
