European Swords, Medieval Martial Arts - Re-enactment and Living History Swords.
Cold weapons from various historical periods intended for historical fencing as well as for collectors and connoisseurs of fine craftsmanship. We have a very extensive range of weapons designed by ancient civlilisations such as Celtic and Roman swords and gladiators’ weapons. You may also be interested in swords of the Early Middle Ages: Norman and Viking swords. Our armoury of medieval swords includes one-handed and hand-and-a-half Gothic swords (longswords), cutlasses and two-handed swords. You will also, of course, find cold weapons from later historical periods: rapiers, foils, sabres, backswords, and Scottish weapons. There is also a category devoted to those weapons used for historical medieval battles (HMB).
SHARP SWORDS ARE NOT INTENDED FOR LIVE ACTION!
Our categories of the swords are (marked by icons in product's detail):
Celtic and Roman Swords. The ancient world is our true passion. We are constantly working to develop and improve our line of ancient weapons, combining various materials (steel, wood, bronze, bone) and refining the techniques for producing them in order to get our replicas as close as possible to their originals. In the Iron Age collection we offer forged Celtic swords and antropomorphic daggers with bronze handles. The adversaries of the Celtic Gauls – the Romans – used the gladius sword. Our collection also includes Greek, Thracian and Dacian swords (falx), and gladiators’ weapons.
We define Viking swords as cold weapons from the 8th-1th centuries that developed from the Roman spatha in the period of the great national migrations. It is a double-edged sword with a typical wide blade (4 - 6 cm) and a length of 60 – 90 cm. The shapes of the hilt and pommel enable the more precise classification of Viking swords in Jan Petersen’s typology. Early medieval (Norman) Romanesque swords are the successors of the Viking swords. Ours are sold dull, as they are intended for historical fencing. In our Arma Epona smithy we specialize in forging sharp functional swords for collectors.
