  • Kingston Arms Federschwert

    1 Review(s)

    Based on a period original fencing sword now located in Switzerland, the Kingston Arms Federschwert is a well updated version of the feder originally offered by Hanwei in 2010. This sword now features a much more robust blade from tang to tip as well as a tougher cord wrapped grip. In our testing, it holds up well to paired drilling as well as more spirited free play sessions. Re-developed in conjunction with several HEMA groups around the US this updated Federschwert provides an affordable and reliable training sword for longsword fencing practice.

  • Sword of Tancred

    Prince Tancred (known in French as Tancrède de Hauteville) was a Norman lord of Southern Italy who was among the first noblemen to join the Crusades in 1096. He saw considerable victories on this bloody campaign, and after the fall of Jerusalem he acquired the title Prince of Galilee. Our exquisite Sword of Tancred has been researched from this legendary knight’s adventures. 

    The pommel has a representation of the red Nurit flower of Galilee on the one side, while the opposite is adorned with the crusader cross, which Tancred adopted during the Crusades. The hard wooden handle has been covered with soft, deep brown stitched leather, accented with antique brass details. The imposing 2" wide blade has a deep fuller running the length, giving great balance to this mighty sword. Included is a period stitched scabbard in matching brown suede with long leather belt.

  • Late Medieval Arming Sword - Malta Sword

    This late medieval arming sword echoes this change in standards. The long, tapered shape of the blade represents the beginnings of a larger development that would lead to pure thrusting weapons such as the rapier. Whereas the hilt figures squarely in the high medieval tradition of classical knight swords, the cross engraving on the pommel evokes a Christian worldview. The diagonal fluting of the leather wrapped around the grip keeps the sword secure in your hand. The steel cross-guard bends upward.

    A sturdy brown scabbard of leather with chape and throat as well as a leather frog allow you to carry the sword with style and ease.

  • Stage Combat Rapier - Brass

    Stage combat rapiers have to meet different requirements than battle-ready rapiers do. In order to minimize the risk of injury from cuts and thrusts during stage combat with fencing weapons, this golden stage combat rapier has back edges that are at least 3 mm thick everywhere and it even has a flattened point.

    It only weighs a little over a kilogram, so our golden stage combat rapier is light and highly manageable. Good balance is not the only characteristic that makes this stage combat rapier manageable – its grip is also very important. Because it is wrapped with both smooth and braided golden wire, it is especially comfortable to grasp. The delicate knuckle bow and finger guard give this rapier a graceful, romantic look and also provide finger protection when a technique requires them to be placed above the crossguard. The pommel is bolted on. Of course this golden stage combat rapier comes with a leather scabbard with a golden mount and chape.

    Total length: 108 cm
    Blade length: 92 cm
    Grip length: 10 cm
    Weight: 1.08 kg
    Blade thickness (base): 3.8 mm

  • Practical Rapier - 43" Blade

    1 Review(s)

    The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate Hanwei's schlaeger blades in 37" (SH1099) and 43" (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.

    Paul Chen's Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

  • Practical Rapier - 37" Blade

    The Schlaeger Rapiers by Paul Chen utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate our schlaeger blades in 37” (SH1099) and 43” (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.

    Fencing in the Renaissance style plays an important part in the historical re-enactment combining the quickness of light blades with the stucture and spirit of the day.  Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

  • Masonic Gold Sword

    Throughout history, as an instrument of justice, truth, equality, and firmness, swords have been used at every great event and have become imbued with great symbolism. For this reason, freemasons use swords in all their ceremonies.

    FREEMASONRY: “a philanthropic, institution intended to achieve an understanding of truth, the study of ethics and the practice of solidarity, working for the material and moral improvement of humanity, it is compatible with any religious or esoteric faith which does not annul the freedom of individuals”. Starting from the tradition of builders harking back to the “medieval masons and architects” freemasonry pursues the personal self-construction of the individual.

    This unique MASONIC SWORD contains a great many of the symbols used in the craft, particularly the compass and set square, the plumb line and the hammer, the sacred book and the eye of the Supreme Being, and the five-pointed star inscribed in the capital “G” of the Great.
