  • Gothic Mitten Gauntlets - 18 gauge

    In the second half of the 15th century, the art of crafting plate armour reached its peak when it came to fusing form with function. Despite its weight, heavy plate armour allows the warrior wearing it enough freedom of movement.

    Our Gothic plate gauntlets are typical parts of plate armour suits. Made of real steel, these plate gauntlets are fastened to your wrists with an adjustable leather strap and buckle, and have a leather tie for the fingers. They are lined with mittens made of genuine, soft leather. The thumb plates are hinged to the back of the hand. The underarm edges of our Gothic plate gauntlets are flanged. These pieces are the ideal addition to our Gothic pauldrons, plate vambraces, plate greaves and our Gothic breastplate set.

  • Hispanic Falcata (Kopis)

    The Greeks or Etruscans were probably the first to use a falcata, but they were also popular with the tribes that lived on the Iberian peninsula. The unusual shape of our Hispanic falcata makes it ideal for delivering serious cuts, which is why the Romans feared the weapon. The single-edged blade is curved inward, has two fullers that meet in the middle and echo the shape of the blade, and a wide back. The engraving on the distinctive grip depicts a primitive bird of prey. This falcata includes a scabbard.

    Total length: 64 cm
    Blade length: 50.5 cm
    Grip length: 12.5 cm
    Weight: 1340g
    Blade thickness (base): 0.49cm

  • Thorpe Falchion

    This extraordinary replica originated in the late 13th or 14th century and was found in the Yare River near Thorpe St. Andrews, England in 1833. Comparisons with the original prove that this re-creation is almost identical to its historical prototype when it comes to dimensions and balance. The single-edged blade is slightly curved, which is why a falchion is classified as a curved sword. The crossguard is curved and has punch-outs shaped like crosses at both ends. The classic wheel pommel keeps hands from sliding off the leather-wrapped grip. Our Thorpe falchion comes with a leather scabbard.

    Total length: 87 cm
    Blade length: 71 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.23 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 4.2 mm
