  • 5 Lobe Viking Sword

    Certain Viking swords that have become famous were splendidly decorated or have some other special feature. Those weapons belonged to high ranking warriors or kings, but what about the simple fighters, the mass of Vikings whose reputation struck fear into the hearts of Europe? Our sword is designed for the hordes, the common warriors. It is a well-balanced weapon without a lot of extra features, simple and effective, just like it should be. The wooden grip is wrapped in black leather. The slightly curved pommel combined with the 5-lobed crossguard of high-quality steel makes this sword a classic type VI in Wheeler's Viking sword typology. Comes complete with a leather scabbard.

  • Damascus Viking Sword

    Excavations of a number of circa 850-900 Viking swords turned up this lovely Damascus specimen in Finland. It has the lobed pommel loved by the Norsemen, but the cross guard contrasts slightly with the typical downcurved versions. The early style blade is well-suited to the quick, slashing blows of the Viking warrior. It is forged from high carbon Damascus steel. It is polished with the fuller etched to show the Damascus construction of the blade. The pommel and cross guard are steel and the grip is leather wrapped wood. The scabbard is wood covered in leather with steel mounts. This is a true fighting sword and one that any Viking would be proud to carry in battle.

  • Oakeshott Sword XIV

    This short sword belongs to the group of swords that Oakeshott classified as XIV type. Widespread in the Late Middle Ages, they were primarily designed to be used against opponents wearing armor. The blade is characteristically wide at the base and ends in an acute point. In conjunction with the dramatic, wheel-shaped pommel, the fuller ensures outstanding balance and a surprisingly low weight. The grip of our XIV medieval short sword is made of wood wrapped with leather. Its wheel pommel is riveted and has a cavity at the center with space for an insignia or jewel. This XIV medieval short sword comes with a scabbard.

  • German Longsword

    We call this elegant edged weapon a "German Longsword," but this type of blade was widely used in Europe during the Late Middle Ages. Its slender shape, acute point and lack of fuller predetermine this sword for use as a thrusting weapon against knightly plate armor. Wielding this blade with two hands greatly increased the probability of scoring a hit in the enemy's weak spot. Our German long sword features a hilt with a striking design: the meander incised in the crossguard is repeated in the pear-shaped pommel. The wooden grip is wrapped in smooth, brown leather for increased control and comfort.

    Our German Longsword comes with a brown leather scabbard including a mount and chape.

    Total length: 113 cm
    Blade length: 91.5 cm
    Grip length: 14.5 cm
    Weight: 1.59 kg

  • American Revolutionary War Sabre

    Dated to around 1775, the prototype for this handsome sabre is pictured in "Swords & Blades of the American Revolution," a book by George C. Neumann that is very popular with collectors and sword fans. The single-edged, subtly curved blade has two fullers. A narrow, deep fuller almost runs along the entire length of the blade. The other one is shorter, shallower, and much wider. Because of them, this amazing saber weighs less than one kilogram. Nevertheless, our American Revolutionary War sabre is perfectly balanced for delivering mighty cuts: like most powerful cutting weapons, it is slightly top-heavy. The spiraling wooden grip is comfortable and easy to control, and the knuckle bow provides added hand protection.

    Total length: 100.5 cm
    Blade length: 86 cm

    Grip length: 10 cm 
    Weight: 0.95 kg 
    Blade thickness (base): 4.7 mm 
    Blade width (base): 3.3 cm 
    Point of Balance (PoB): 19 cm
    Blade: High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel
