  • Practical Viking Sword

    Our Practical Viking Swords are all based on authentically styled swords in our collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies.

    The lobate pommel and down-turned guard are typical of Viking swords of the period, as is the broad blade with its deep, full-length fullers. The sword is well-balanced and, with a weight slightly over 2 lbs., it is very quick.

    Total length: 85 cm
    Blade length: 71cm
    Weight: 1500g
    Blade thickness (base): 0.5cm
    Blade: 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt

  • Battlecry Tourney Viking Sword

    Our Tourney Series Sparring and Stage Swords will set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened stainless steel pommel and guard and 2mm rounded edge thickness. 

    The cord wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. The blade is forged from 9260 spring steel and is tempered to around 50 Hrc. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword. The guard needs special mention, featuring the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from working loose without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened.

    Our Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in our collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies.

    The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds.

    Total length: 92.7 cm
    Blade length: 76.2 cm

  • Crusader Sword

    This is an exact replica of the sword used by the Templar Rene from the movie Soldier of God. The Oakeshott Type XVa sword marks the transition between the one-handed swords of the High Middle Ages and the hand and a half swords. Our Crusader sword is an excellent example of this type. It is similar to a normal type XV, but its tapering blade has a diamond-shaped cross-section and is somewhat longer and slimmer. The hardwood grip wrapped with black leather is a little longer than a typical one-handed sword, so it can also be used comfortably with two hands. The pommel and the crossguard with flattened sides are decorated with crosses on both sides – the ones on the crossguard are painted red. This hand forged Crusader sword with crosses is made of carbon steel and includes a black leather scabbard with a mount and chape.

    Total length: 104 cm
    Blade length: 86 cm
    Grip length: 12 cm
    Weight: 1.22 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 3.8 mm

  • Tourney Arming Sword

    Blunt Single Hand Sword for re-enactment and stage combat. Our Tourney Series Sparring and Stage Swords will set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened stainless steel pommel and guard and 2mm rounded edge thickness

    The cord wrapped leather grip has an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of both pieces to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to around 50 Hrc. The sword is supplied with a wood core and leather wrapped scabbard. The guard features the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from going loose after a lengthy campaign without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck.

  • Shrewsbury Sword

    Overall: 107cm
    Blade Length: 85cm
    Blade Width: 4.5cm
    Blade Thickness: 0.5cm

  • Stage Combat Longsword - Brass

    Stage combat swords have to meet different requirements than battle-ready swords do. In order to minimize the risk of injury from cuts and thrusts during stage combat with swords, this elegant two-handed stage combat sword has back edges that are at least 3 mm thick everywhere and it even has a rounded point.

    Despite its respectable size, our elegant two-handed stage combat sword is highly manageable. The leather wrapped grip and the fuller that runs more than two-thirds of its length add control and comfort and make this stage combat sword comparatively light, while the noble, riveted wheel pommel provides a counterweight for good balance. The graceful curve of the golden crossguard adds to the overall elegance of this two-handed stage combat sword. It includes a scabbard made of genuine leather with a golden mount and chape.

    Total length: 125 cm
    Blade length: 97 cm
