- BATTLE READY SWORDS - designed for re-enactment / live steel use. With a guarantee against breakage. Generally with a blunt blade. They can also be sharpened on customer's request but then they belong to the category of decorative swords.
- DECORATIVE SWORDS – are made for display only. They are usually sharp. Don't use them for fighting!
- STAGE COMBAT SWORDS – swords designed for costume / theatrical usage. These swords have commonly the blade that is not case hardened and we don't offer a quarantee for breakage. These swords cannot be used in re-enactment fights.
- UNIQUE REPLICAS – the swords we are most proud of. These swords are made in the same way as real weapons. Usually sharp, with many forged parts, well-crafted and decorated. No serial production. Figuratively speaking – you can take this sword to the grave, meaning it is of such a high quality. These swords can not be used in re-enactment fights.
