5 lobe Viking Medieval sword
The British Museum in London. 800-950 AD One of the most coveted medieval weapons among medieval sword collectors is the Viking medieval sword. Given the multitude of Viking battle ready swords on the market, one wonders whether the market is saturated. Many reproductions however, play into the stereotype of Viking battle ready swords as little more than long cleavers - heavy, brutish weapons wielded by a brutal people. These reproductions fail to capture the spirit or “function” of the Viking medieval sword as an important step in the evolution of the European medieval sword, from earlier Romanesque styles to the arming battle ready swords of medieval times. The most authoritive typology of the Viking battle ready sword was written by Dr. Jan Peterson in 1919. Focusing on variations in pommel and guards to formulate a 26 category scheme, Jan Perterson created a typological reference to determine the date of each sub type. The five lobed Viking battle sword is the quintessential Norse weapon during the Viking age. The blade has the distinctive wide fuller and spatulate tip, typical of designs from the Viking era. While using a Type 4 blade from the Geibig Typology, Darksword Armory fitted the five lobe Viking medieval sword with an extended handle that is long enough for both "hammer" and "handshake" grip. The type 4 blade, found from the mid-tenth century through the mid-eleventh century, features a slight taper and a fuller which extends the blade’s full length. DA carefully crafted this Viking medieval sword to reflect the Norse cultural and artistic heritage. Exceptional tools of war, the Viking medieval swords also attest to the Viking culture’s keen interest in art and aesthetic beauty. The Viking battle ready sword features a 30 inch blade, forged with 5160 High Carbon Steel and Dual Tempered HRc 60 and 48-50 at the core. Details: Overall Length: approx. 91.4 cm Blade Length: approx. 76.2 cm Blade Material: 5160 Carbon Steel HRC: 60 Weight: approx. 993 g Please note: The sword will be delivered only with the scabbard, the "matching belt" is not included but can be ordered for an extra charge.

Rangers are a fantasy character 'archetype,' idealized warriors who fight with honour and have a deep and abiding respect for nature.

Frequently depicted as the "lone warrior" character fighting in the shadows against evil, Rangers fight with sword, knife and bow, and are talented in all manner of wilderness and tracking skills.

Leg Medieval Armor
13th Century. Leg medieval armor that covers the knee (known as ‘poleyns’) was one of the first forms of plate armor. Poleyns were generally worn by attaching them to or over chain mail ‘chausses’ that either came to the knee or else extended down the leg. In the 13th C, most soldiers wore a gambeson (padded jacket) covered by chain mail, with poleyns protecting their legs, copts to protect their elbows, and a helmet (usually the conical ‘Great Helm’). The use of full sets of plate armor did not come into common use for another century. Crusaders wore this combination of mail with small sections of plate armor on their journey to and subsequent battles in the Holy Land. The 13th century saw many crusades, and it was a time of great upheaval as legions of soldiers left their homelands to fight in foreign lands. Armor was usually stripped from the dead as iron was a precious commodity in medieval Europe.

The Vindaaris
Since the founding of Darksword Armory, the swords in our catalog have had multiple inspirations. Our swords are based on examples from literature, myth, art, and film – including our popular Lord of the Rings swords. Many more of our swords are based on surviving historical artifacts; Darksword founder Eyal Azerad has traveled to museums all over the world in order to examine swords from different eras in history, and these were replicated in our forge to exacting specifications. Many of our most popular designs, though, have been our fantasy designs, and for over a decade these unique, coveted pieces have been based on the vision our designer, Terry. Terry and Eyal have worked closely over the last 10 years to create some of the most remarkable fantasy swords on the market. Since 2008 Terry has sketched original and fantasy-inspired swords and knives which we have endeavored to capture in steel, and these designs have been some of Darksword Armory’s most sought-after. The Vindaaris is the latest of Terry’s designs, and it is truly a wonder to behold. The inspiration for the Vindaaris was twofold. First, it was inspired by the Norse myths of the light elves that allied themselves with the gods. Hailing from the ancient world of Alfheim, these elves and their weapons would be instrumental in the final battle against evil. The designer’s description references this: In the last days of the age of Gods, the All-Father Odin, summoned his allies to his throne. Among those were the glorious and enigmatic light elves from Alfheim, they and their god ruler Fryer swore their arms to the All-Father for the final battle for Midgard. These swords are among those laid at Odin’s throne, forged for the end times of Ragnarok. The inscription in Nordic runes reads, “Honor, Loyalty, Disgrace, Vengeance” – common themes from Vikings of legend and myth. The other source is, as many of our swords, is the work of J.R.R Tolkien. The elves of light in Tolkien’ work made many mighty swords, and this fantasy blade more greatly resembles a sword you would see on the hip of an elf-lord than a Viking. The Tolkien “heritage” of the design is honored in an alternative inscription made in the “Tengwar” language Tolkien invented for his elves of Middle-Earth on a limited edition version of the Vindaaris. On just 50 of the Vindaaris swords that were made the elven inscription on the blade is from the Volsung saga, an epic tale of Viking lore, and reads: “Better to fight and fall than live without hope.” Thus, from both sources of inspiration, this would be considered an “elven” blade. The sword itself is a powerful two handed weapon. The unique blade is made from 5160 steel, flowing effortlessly to the flared section unlike anything else in our catalog. The curved guard is expertly sculpted, showing cunning lines and elegant script. The leather-wrapped handle hides a robust tang, and the graceful pommel reflects the weapon’s elven heritage. Make no mistake, as beautiful as this sword is it is still, in fact, a very real weapon. We at Darksword Armory our proud of our collaboration with Terry Maranda, and invite you to own a piece of his legacy.

The Black Prince Dagger
The English Prince Edward of Woodstock, Prince of Wales, lived from June 15, 1330 to June 8, 1376. He is a well known historical figure; well known for his chivalrous (and occasionally non-chivalrous) actions, and for never being crowned king despite being the eldest son of King Edward III – he died before his father, and the crown passed to his son Richard instead. Edward would also later come to be known by a nickname of indeterminate origin – “The Black Prince,” a name well known to scholars in the fields of art, history, literature and theater. This popularity was surely affected when a sword that was discovered in the mid 20th century was identified by Ewart Oakeshott as the Sword of the Black Prince. Thought to have been stolen from Edward’s tomb centuries earlier, became one of the most recognizable artefacts of 14th Century Medieval swords. The sword has a long, tapered blade that is ideally suited for thrusting, while still remaining able to make powerful cuts. The handle is elongated to provide more leverage, which in combination with the large pommel results in excellent tip control. The original has a Type XVa blade, which is faithfully reproduced here. Edward’s “Black Prince” title may have come from his distinctive armor, which according to some sources was blackened steel (although the title may also have come from his temper, mercilessness to his enemies or derision towards the lower classes in spite of his chivalrous beliefs). The pommel and guard of this sword have been blackened to reflect that title, and would match the dark platted armor that Edward may have worn. A black leather wrapped handle and upgraded scabbard completes the look. This is the first time that DSA has interpreted this popular design, and would be suitable for anyone who has an interest in Medieval longswords in general or 14th Century interpretations specifically. Details: Overall Length: approx. 44.5 cm Blade Length: approx. 30.5 cm Weight: approx. 511 g Please note: The dagger only has the scabbard, the belt is not included but can be ordered with an additional cost.

The Longford
The Longford was used by the Swiss or German longsword masters during the Renaissance. Some texts used by these instructors still survive and inform a number of Medieval and Renaissance martial artists who want to train in classical European swordplay without entering into the realm of sport fencing. Unlike sport fencing, the arts used by these fighters are designed for serious combat, when knowing how to properly parry a thrust could save your life. The Longford boasts a long, tapered blade common to 15th Century medieval swords. A unique feature to this blade is a thick ricasso at the base, adding stability and strength and also allowing a safe place for a gloved hand to grasp when the sword would need to be used in closer combat. An attractive, curled guard and scentstopper pommel complete this sword nicely. The fuller extends ¾ of the length of the blade and is complimented by a central ridge. This two handed sword is named after the Longford Castle, located on the banks of the River Avon south of Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. Details: Overall Length: approx. 127 cm Blade Length: approx. 99 cm Blade Thickness: approx. 0.1 cm POB: approx. 10.2 cm Blade: 5160 High Carbon Steel. Dual Tempered HRc 60 48-50 at the core Weight: approx. 1419 g Please note: The sword will be delivered only with the scabbard, the "matching belt" is not included but can be ordered for an extra charge.

Edward The IIIrd Leg Armor
14th Century. These 3/4 length leg armor are designed after those of King Edward the Third of England. The Leg medieval armor is made of 14 g. steel and ready to wear with straps and historical buckles. Edward III lived from 1312 to 1377. He enjoyed an unusually long reign of fifty years, accomplishing much. The king was an aggressive military campaigner, taking over his father and grandfather’s conquest of Scotland as well as starting the Hundred Years War with France. England was ravaged by the plague twice within his reign and the king was able to restore society relatively quickly after both epidemics. Edward III was crowned when he was only fourteen years old, when his mother Queen Isabella and her lover Roger Mortimer deposed his father. The two of them served as Edward’s regents, during which time Roger Mortimer subjected him to constant disrespect. As a result, when he was only seventeen years old Edward III led a coup to restore his rightful rule. Mortimer was executed within a month of the coup despite the pleas of his mother. The later years of his rule were marked with civil unrest and strife due to the king’s failing health. Despite that, King Edward III is still considered one of the most successful kings in English history and has been compared to King Arthur himself.

The Urnes Stave Viking Sword
Viking weaponry, jewelry, and other relics are frequently decorated with distinctive artistic designs. These designs are formed of detailed knotwork and frequently depict animals, gods, and other symbolism from Norse mythology. It is especially interesting, therefore, that a 12th century Christian church in Norway should be covered with some of the most intricate knotwork designs still surviving from the Viking era.The Urnes Stave Church is an incredibly unique building for several reasons. It is constructed in a architectural style unique to Norway in which large staves form the load-bearing portion of the structure. Over a thousand of these churches used to exist in Medieval Norway, now there are less than thirty. The Urnes Stave Church represents not only the best-preserved example of one of these churches, but one that has stunning carvings along much of the preserved structure. In addition, the Church was built on the location of much older buildings, and contains decorative carvings that are almost a hundred years older than the rest of the church – this indicates the previous buildings may have been churches from the era when Christianity arrived in Norway.The carvings themselves are of a distinctive style, so distinctive that it has become known as the Urnes style. This style appears to have been developed by the original builders, who likely constructed the church on behalf of a wealthy medieval family. Fierce animals flow across the wood, their elongated bodies intertwined, depicting conflict and battle. Scenes depicted may be biblical, or may hold some connection to older features of Norse mythology. The distinctive lines of the Urnes style – contrasted broad and narrow contours, curving in a seemingly endless flow – are what sets it apart from other Norse artwork from the same era. It is this Urnes style that has been reproduced on the hilt of Darksword Armory’s Urnes Stave Viking Sword.The Urnes Stave Viking Sword is a Darksword design updated with knotwork inspired by its namesake. The broad, solid blade is hand made from 5160 steel, and has the classic wide, shallow fuller so common to Viking swords of this era. The blade is tempered and resilient like all of Darksword Armory’s swords – however, it is the fittings where this sword’s personality truly shines. Bronze fittings, cast using the lost wax process, depict Urnes style knotwork with contrasting broad and narrow lines. The handle itself is similarly carved from dark (WOOD NAME) and fitted to the tang with epoxy before the pommel is hot peened. This method of construction results in Darksword Armory’s famous durability. The Urnes Stave Viking Sword is a stunning example of a modern Viking reproduction, and is inspired by one of the most beautiful buildings in Norway. We hope you enjoy owning a sword fit for any Viking chieftain. Hand forged from 5160 High Carbon Steel Differential Hardened at a Rockwell of 60 at the Edge; 48-50 at the core.

The Eindride Lone Wolf Medieval Sword
The Eindride (“One Who Rides Alone”) In Norse mythology and legend, there are few symbols more prominent than the wolf. A wolf pack was representative of attributes like strength, loyalty, and a stark reminder of the mortality and doom of man. Across the whole Nordic world you would be hard pressed to find a greater symbol of royalty and power than this most graceful and deadly creature. The wolf, and the wolf pack, feature heavily in the Icelandic sagas and other stories throughout human history. Wolves are known as social animals. Their greatest strength is not their speed, their claws, or their fangs, but their ability to work together to bring down greater foes. It is this pack mentality that defines their being and has captured the imaginations of cultures around the world for centuries. It is also why the “lone wolf” concept is so simultaneously fascinating, and heartbreaking. A lone wolf may have lost their pack, or left it behind, or been cast out – but they still persevere. Running in the moonlight, fighting for survival, refusing to give in to loneliness or despair. Lone wolves, while rare in nature, have become symbols for people who feel they are on the “outside” – of society, family, or the social norms that constrain them. The Eindride is a sword for the lone wolf, the wanderer, the outcast. Someone who, for a time at least, is separated from their pack. This sword’s cast bronze guard features snarling wolf heads on the hilt, accented by traditional knotwork. A simple bronze scentstopper pommel and wooden grip complement the elaborate hilt. The blade has a thick ricasso that transitions into a single fuller double edged design that has norse runes inscribed, reading, “Let my blade be your last warning” – a snarl from the indomitable heart of the lone wolf. The Eindride was designed with these people in mind, in honour of their unbreakable spirits, to be their companion when no one else is. We hope it will keep you safe on the journey.

This is the first time that DSA has interpreted this popular design, and would be suitable for anyone who has an interest in medieval swords in general or 14th Century interpretations specifically. 1060 High Carbon Steel, Tempered to a Rockwell of 53 Fittings: Mild Steel Total Length: 45" - Two handed sword Blade length: 34" Handle: 8" Blade width at base: 2" blade thickness: 1.48 mm Weight: 3 lbs 2 oz POB: 3" Please note: The sword will be delivered only with the scabbard, the "matching belt" is not included but can be ordered for an extra charge.

Viking Bloodaxe
Many modern fans of Norse culture are quick to point out that, contrary to popular belief, not all Norsemen were brutal warriors. According to many amateur and actual historians the pop culture depictions of Vikings as thugs are inaccurate, misleading, and borderline offensive. The Norse were a noble people with a culture rich in art and tradition, not bloodthirsty killers.Then there is Eric Bloodaxe.The full tale of Eric Haraldsson is a convoluted tale. Much of what we know comes from the Viking sagas composed centuries after his death, and the contemporary accounts of his life are mixed and conflicting. Even the origins of his nickname – “The Bloodaxe” are uncertain – was he named so because of his victories in Viking raids? Or due to the murders he committed against his family?Born in 885 CE, Eric was favoured son of King Harald Finehair of Norway. Which was fortunate, as Eric reportedly murdered most of his brothers during his rise to power. According to the sagas, Eric was so fearsome a warrior that by the age of 12 he was given several ships and embarked on a series of Viking raids and pirating expeditions, raiding as far away as Wales, Italy, and northern Russia. As he grew older and was marked to succeed his father the strife with his brothers reached a fever-pitch. Numerous bloody battles were fought until Eric emerged as one of the only surviving members of his family; when Harald died in 930 CE Eric succeeded him as king – for a time.By some of the reports available we can infer Eric Bloodaxe’s rule was harsh, despotic, and wildly unpopular with his nobles and his people alike. Thus, when his younger half brother Haakon (known as “Haakon the Good,” a sharp contrast with his elder brother) returned from being fostered in England there was a brief but likely memorable coup resulting in Eric fleeing to England and Haakon ascending the throne sometime in late 933, early 934 CE.Apparently impressing the English king Athelstan, Eric was granted the rule of Northumbria, a notoriously difficult area to rule. This is according to the Sagas, however – some English sources suggest this was a hostile takeover. Due to political turmoil (and possibly his legendary temper) Eric’s rule was a time of strife in the kingdom. He reigned for two separate periods (947–948 CE, 952–954 CE) before his life was ended by betrayal. In 954 CE Eric was fleeing Northumbria after his latest attempt to successfully rule fell to pieces. One of Eric’s officials and companions, a man named Osulf, reportedly conspired with the warrior Maccus, and Eric Bloodaxe was ambushed and killed in the mountains of north west England. Despite this ignoble end (and a convoluted and disputed history), Eric Bloodaxe remains one of the more popular characters from Viking lore.This latest axe by Darksword Armory is an homage to the legend and character of Eric Bloodaxe. The head is of a common variety often see in Viking artwork and surviving artifacts, with a long cutting edge and a dropped back point. The reverse of the head is a solid, chisel-shaped hammer, ensuring that regardless of which side is used to strike the axe will be devastatingly effective. The metal is blackened to reduce the dangers of rust, and the long wooden shaft is wrapped in leather strips to give it a savage, battle-worn appearance. This axe is a highly effective and beautiful piece from Darksword Armory, and we invite you to add it to your collection – though we ask that it not be used to live up to the name of Eric Haraldsson. Total Length : 30.5” Viking Axe head (width): 8.5” Viking Axe head (hight) 8” long Weight: 3 lbs. 8 oz.

The Spartan Sword
Battle of Thermopylae (circa 480 BCE) is one of the most famous battles in classical antiquity. The battle occurred when a small Greek force met the Persian Empire’s army, numbering many times more than the Greeks had brought. The two armies clashed at a narrow choke point on the Persian army’s march towards Athens, and after several days of battle King Leonidas of Sparta stayed behind with a small rearguard to allow them time to escape. He had with him 300 Spartans plus a number of other Greeks including hundred of Thespians (Greeks from the city of Thespiae, not Thespians as in “actors”), and in a heroic effort were slaughtered almost to the last man while making the invading Persians pay dearly for their victory. The tale of “Leonidas and his brave 300” has inspired many works of fiction, including poems and in recent years films and novels. One of the most famous is the 1998 graphic novel “300” by Frank Miller. This work featured a unique artistic style that was adopted into a 2007 film by the same name. The swords used by the Spartans in the film is not historically based but still has managed to become an extremely popular model in reproduction. The sword is short and single edged, narrow at the shoulders and widening towards the tapered and curved tip. The unique looking curved guard and pommel provide partial hand protection. This blade may not be a historical model, but would be deadly in the hands of any Spartan.

The Medici Long Sword
Inspired by the Italian greatswords of the 16th century, the Medici, type XVIIIb, Two-Handed Sword is a surprisingly elegant and nimble design. The long, slender blade is rendered a strong thrusting weapon due to the diamond cross section, allowing it to slip between plates of armor and split rings of mail. Yet the reasonable point-of-balance and extended, leather-wrapped handle create a weapon that flows smoothly through guard, cut, and thrust, not limiting it to a single style of offense. The gracefully curved guard and scentstopper pommel compliment the simple and straighforward blade, and everything is polished to a mirror sheen. The Medici, named for the Italian political dynasty that were for a time the de facto rulers of Italy, is a beautiful weapon that deserves to be a centrepiece in your home. SPECS: Total Length : 129,54 cm Blade Length: 97,79 cm grip: 22,86 cm Blade Width: 5,23 cm Crossguard Length: 22,86 cm Weight: 1,5 kg P.O.B.: 14,6 cm Please note: The sword will be delivered only with the scabbard, the "matching belt" is not included but can be ordered for an extra charge.

Two handed Danish Sword
Danish Two Handed Sword, Type XVIIIe, Medieval Sword 15th Century (1410-1500) The history of Denmark is filled with tumultuous periods of war and strife, conflicts driven by the same political and religious factors that were widespread throughout Medieval and Post-Medieval Europe. Smaller kingdoms were swallowed up by larger, and larger kingdoms splintered apart. Due to this fairly colorful history, the Danes became known for some distinctive weaponry, of which this Danish Two-Handed battle ready Sword is an example. This medieval sword is classified as an Oakeshott Type XVIIIe, a very unusual member of the Type XVIII group. These two handed danish sword are some of the few that can be safely tied to a specific region. Type XVIIIe medieval swords have been found almost exclusively in Denmark. It is believed however that some examples may actually be German or Italian in origin. The unique and defining characteristic of this type of sword is its unusual narrowed ricasso.It features a long, stiff diamond shaped blade with an extremely long handle, making it suitable for cut and thrust swordplay as many other swords were in the later 15th Century. Light and well balanced, this two handed battle ready sword has excellent cutting and thrusting abilities. Guided and balanced with the decorated globe pommel pommel, the pointed guard can be used as a weapon capable of stabbing under the gorget and helmet, effectively defeating the opponent. The Danish Two handed battle ready sword sword also has a long unsharpened ricasso that can be gripped to shorten up the blade for closer work. This option to fight with the “half sword” makes the Danish Two-Handed Medieval Sword an incredibly versatile weapon.

The Excalibur Dagger
As a collector and bladesmith, the making of Excalibur sword was a deeply personal project. As for many, John Boorman’s 1981 Epic Film was not only my favorite movie but, as a child, my introduction to the “Middle Ages”. This introduction, crystalized “The Excalibur” at the core of my passion and a romanticized vision of the “Middle Ages”. Hence, forging the Excalibur sword, was a passion project for myself and the staff alike. We felt we owed this sword our utmost attention. Making yet another “decorative” Excalibur was not an option. Our recreation had to be classically elegant, vibrant, and faithfully crafted from the original prop. Our goal was not only to produce a finely hand forged sword, but to produce a lasting legacy of the film. The Excalibur is an authoritative, functional and resilient sword. skillfully crafted and engineered for the most demanding collector, the Excalibur is the benchmark of what a real sword should be. 5160 High Carbon Steel Dual hardened tempered to a Rockwell of 53 Total length: 17″ Blade length: 12″ Handle length: 3 1/4″ Blade width at base: 1 1/2″ Weight: 1lbs 0oz

Fëanor’s Two Handed Sword
Medieval Sword, Fantasy. The Fëanor Medieval sword is an inspirational piece based on Tolkien's creation. In J.R.R. Tolkiens Silmarillion, Fëanor was the most powerful elf who ever lived, so powerful that the dark lord Melkor was afraid of his might. Fëanor (“Spirit of Fire” in Sindarian) was one of the Noldor, the elves who lived in Valinor under the light of the two Trees (Laurelin and Telperion) that existed before the Sun and the Moon. He was such a mighty craftsman of jewels that he was able to place the light of the Trees into the three Silmarils, gems of such surpassing beauty that the wars fought over them changed the face of the world forever. Fëanor also was the first of the elves to forge weapons, and created the first battle ready swords that were used by elves to slay their own kin. Because of these deeds much evil entered into the world.

Charlemagne sword
“Right action is better than knowledge; but in order to do what is right, we must know what is right.” Charles the Great (742-814 CE), styled Charlemagne, Emperor of the West, quoted in in Jean-Barthélemy Hauréau’s (1850) De la philosophie scolastiqueSome famous swords known to popular culture are historical artifacts; for instance, the sword of the Black Prince, or the arming sword of King Henry V. Still others are known to us because of myth; Excalibur, for example, or Hrunting, the sword of Beowulf. Rarest of all, though, are the swords in which history and legend meet, and overlap, and leave us with an artifact rooted in history and wrapped in mythology. The sword of Charlemagne, first emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, is one such legendary weapon. Charles I was the eldest son of the Frankish king Pepin the Short. After his father’s death he became king, beginning his rule over the Franks when he was only in his 20’s. A highly religious man, he began a campaign to strengthen the position of the Catholic Church in Europe. This led to military campaigns against the Slavs, the Moors, and a 30-year religious war against the Saxons that served to establish his credentials as a leader and military commander. It was these actions that united Western Europe into the Holy Roman Empire, an Empire over which Charlemagne was made emperor in the year 800 CE by then Pope Leo III. Some historical sources suggest that Charlemagne was unaware of the Pope’s plans to make him emperor and took the seat with reluctance – this has been disputed by many historians.Charlemagne was to rule the empire for 14 years, and despite his sometimes brutal military campaigns he also made many educational reforms – creating libraries and expanding budgets for schools, as well as increasing the perceived value of literature, scholarship, and music. Upon his death the empire passed to his son, and he was buried in a cathedral in what would one day be Western Germany. The history of Charlemagne contains a strange mix of fact and fiction, and nowhere is this more evident than in the tale of his sword.Called Joyeuse (“Joyful” in French), Charlemagne’s sword was the stuff of legend. The origins of the sword are suitably fantastical; it was supposedly of the same make as the legendary sword Durendal, which was brought to earth from heaven by an angel. Other sources suggest that it was forged from, or at least partially contained, part of the spear that pierced the side of Christ as he hung from the cross. Joyeuse supposedly had a dazzling appearance – The Song of Roland, a famous 11th-century epic poem that depicts a period of Charlemagne’s reign, describes the sword thusly:“”[Charlemagne] was wearing his fine white coat of mail and his helmet with gold-studded stones; by his side hung Joyeuse, and never was there a sword to match it; its colour changed thirty times a day.” The fate of Charlemagne’s sword remains unknown; however, a sword that is purported to have been his has been used at the coronation of French kings since the 12th century. This sword was kept with other articles of ceremonial regalia in the royal abbey of Saint-Denis and brought out for ceremony. Moved to the Musée du Louvre in 1793, the artifact – now referred to as the true Sword of Charlemagne – was used one last time at the coronation of Charles X before being retired to the Louvre where it remains to this day.While the identity of this sword as belonging to Charlemagne is unconfirmed, it is certainly a piece of stunning beauty. The famous golden handle appears to be a composite piece – the winged dragon crossguard, for example, is from the 12th century, while the handle appears to have been made in the 13th or 14th century. The pommel, however, appears to be ornamented in the style of 10th or 11th century Scandinavia, suggesting it may be the oldest piece of hardware on the sword. The age of the blade is disputed, with dates ranging anywhere from the 9th century (making it possible to have indeed been Charlemagne’s sword) to the 13th century (putting its identity as the fabled Joyeuse in doubt). Despite its uncertain origin, the sword currently displayed in the Louvre is carries a rich history and is traditionally associated with the sword carried by the first emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.The Darksword Armory Charlemagne Sword is one of our most anticipated project to date, and has been in development since Darksword Armory founder Eyal Azarad’s visit to the Louvre. A broad, solid blade with a single fuller matches the antique on display, and is made from 5160 high carbon steel as are all our blades. The tang for this sword was made especially thick in order to provide additional stability. The hilt furniture, however, is where the quality of our work truly shines. The original handle, cross guard, and pommel are made from gold, and many modern reproductions use brass or gold-plated metal; Darksword Armory uses the lost wax process to cast the hilt furniture out of bronze. The incredible detail on our version of Joyeuse, one of the only battle-ready versions of Charlemagne’s sword available today. We hope that you will enjoy our take on this sword of history and legend.

Viking Axe
The axe is one of the first tools to be manufactured by humankind. The simplicity of its construction and its inherent versatility means that axes have been an integral part of every human culture. Axes however are associated to the Vikings more than any other group of warriors. Axes were a vital part of Viking life, as evidenced by archaeological digs at Viking sites. However, it's important to understand that the basis of Viking life was not raping and pillaging, but agriculture. Axes were an essential farming and household tool. As they did with all of their weapons, Vikings usually named their axes, often naming them after she-trolls. However, axes never had the same cultural significance to Viking warriors as swords and spears did. The Viking axe was not a sacred weapon but an immensely practical one; something that could be for combat but was most commonly called on for simple domestic or agricultural duties. In war however, the Viking axe was a devastating weapons in hand-to-hand combat, capable of splitting a man's skull, or thrown against an opponent’s shield. Around the 10th century, the Vikings developed the weapon known as the Dane Axe. This is that huge, terrifying battle axe that we commonly associate with Vikings. Its shaft could be as long as six feet, and the head had a cutting surface of up to twelve inches. The head of the Dane Axe was extremely thin, with thicknesses as narrow as 2mm along the edge of the blade. With a lightweight design, these were easy to swing and provided a wide radius of destruction with little risk to the axe getting stuck, although they were not as useful in hand-to-hand combat as the smaller hand axe. Although associated with Vikings - the Dane Axe still appears on the state coat of arms of Norway - the Dane Axe was actually most popular in England, where it continued to be used into the 16th century, long after the influence of the Vikings had waned.
