  • Classic Longsword

    1 Review(s)

    The term "long sword" designates a sword that is longer than a one handed sword: approximately 37 cm or longer. A long sword was primarily wielded using two hands, but thanks to the comparatively light weight of this classic long sword, one handed techniques are also possible.

    Its double-edged blade has three fullers, but the two outer ones only run the length of the ricasso. The ricasso itself is large enough for your second hand to reach over the crossguard with langet to grasp it. This hold significantly increases the pressure behind thrust techniques. The wooden grip is wrapped in leather, and both the pear-shaped pommel and the crossguard are made of steel. Our classic long sword comes with a leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

  • Red Dragon Combat - Temple Church Sword

    9 Review(s)

    Our Temple Church sword is a replica of a sword found in the River Thames in London. The sword, forged in the period between 1300-1350, was discovered opposite Temple Church, the headquarters of the Knights Templar in England.

    During the 14th century, the gardens of the Temple in London ran down to the river’s edge where this sword was discovered. The discovery location, coupled with the crosses in the pommel, suggests that it is a Templar knight’s sword thrown into the river when the Order of the Temple was dissolved by Edward II in 1314.

    Overall Length: 127.5cm
    Blade Length: 100.5cm
    Blade Width: 5cm
    Blade Thickness: 0.4cm
    Guard Width: 20cm
    Point of Balance: 20cm
    Weight: 1550g
    Material: High Carbon Steel Blade, Leather Grip
    Edge: Blunt - 1.5mm
    Pommel: Peened
