British 1796 Pattern Light Cavalry Saber
Designed by Major-General John Gaspard Le Marchant, the 1796 pattern light cavalry saber was based on Central and Eastern European hussar swords. As a young captain, he observed the clumsy design of the heavy, overly long 1788 Pattern swords. Le Marchant opined that the "blades of the Turks, Mamelukes, Moors, and Hungarians (were) preferable to any other." He gave the blade of this saber a pronounced curve, which made it more adept at cavalry attack methods, and designed it with a widened tip that affected the balance, but made slashes far more brutal. It was issued primarily to British light dragoons and hussars and was also used by the King's German Legion light cavalry during the Napoleonic Wars. The blade profile became so popular that the Prussians and other German states emulated its design throughout the 19th century.This exact replica of an original antique weighs only 1 lb, 12 oz, and the blade features an extreme distal taper, enabling it to feel exceptionally lively. A full 5/8" thick at the hilt, and tapers to a super thin 1/64", 1" from the tip. The blade is hand forged from tough 1080 high carbon steel and spring tempered and arrives fully sharpened.The hilt replicates the originals, with a 5/8" wide knuckle guard, steel spine, and contoured, ribbed leather grip.Complete with accurately reproduced steel scabbard. SPECIFICATIONS: Overall Length: 37-1/4" Blade Length: 32-1/4" Blade Width: 1-3/4” at the ricasso Blade distal taper: 5/8” thick at the hilt, 1/64” 1” from tip Blade material: Spring tempered 1080 high carbon Steel Blade Edge: Sharpened Wt: 1 lb / 12 oz

The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar
Non Nobis, Domine, Non Nobis, Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam These iconic words engraved on the blade define this historic sword replica.

This magnificent sword named The Accolade would have been a sword worthy of the Grand Master to knight a loyal member into this holy order. The best metalsmiths from Windlass Steelcrafts have spent hours on each blade, hand forging the high carbon steel for optimal balance, quickness and durability.

Landsknecht Katzbalger Sword
Beginning in the 14th century, Swiss pikemen established themselves as dominant mercenaries. But an equally courageous, stout competitor later appeared from Germany. Landsknecht troops challenged Swiss superiority in a "No Quarter" rivalry that lasted for years. The flamboyantly dressed German Landsknecht mercenary lived a harsh, brutal life and were famous for their giant, two-hand Flamberge sword. After using the Flamberge to break an enemy's row of front-line pikemen, a smaller, one-hand sword was employed for the ensuing close-quarters combat - the Katzbalger. Not as fancy as its slightly frivolous looking (but nonetheless deadly) big brother, the Katzbalger (roughly translates to "cat-gutter") was still highly styled and was designed to be an effective cut and thrust sword. Carried by all Landsknecht troops, including the pikemen and arquebusiers, this sword had an ornate "closed s" shaped guard and an extra long, fluted pommel. The Katzbalger was most assuredly respectful of its Renaissance roots.Our replica is just as battle ready as the originals. The beautifully rendered grip would do any Landskecht proud. The fluting in the pommel extends seamlessly into the wood grip, and the guard is expertly spiral twisted and terminates in half-spheres. The tempered, high carbon steel blade is adorned with a trio of fullers that slightly lighten the blade.The black leather scabbard is mildly decorated with leather bands that criss-cross and are knotted near the throat and has a unique steel tip. Guard is 4-1/4" wide. The blade is distal tapered (.160" at the guard and .1315" at the tip) which helps keep the sword's weight to only 2.4 lbs. Details: Overall Length: 35-1/2" Blade Length: 29" Blade Width: 1-3/4" Weight: 2 lbs / 6.4 oz Material: 1075 High Carbon Steel

Sticklestad Viking Sword
The Battle of Stiklestad was the final battle of St. Olaf. This was warfare of the old school, with two hosts meeting face-to-face and sword-to-sword. It was a brutal, bloody and deadly fight, and in the end, the mighty Olaf fell. Gaining a lot of fame for his exploits, he was eventually canonized as St. Olaf. This attractive Viking sword is copied from a specimen that was quite involved in that kind of vicious encounter. Made from high carbon steel the sword is a beautifully balanced and highly effective weapon. Capable of both cutting and thrusting, it is also a delight to the eye. Pommel and guard are tastefully decorated with copper, the wooden grip is covered in leather. A scabbard is included. Details: Total length: 37" Blade length: 31" Blade width: 2" Blade thickness: 3/16" Weight: 2 lbs. 12 oz.

Scottish Cutlass
The crashing of waves, the roar of cannons, the shout of sea rogues through the foreboding mist - this new cutlass can't help but unleash adventurous images. Scottish born Capt. (William) Kidd, we're sure, would have favored this sword.

The basket itself provided excellent hand protection and could deliver a hard blow in close combat aboard. A scabbard is included.

Seax
Circa 750 The seax, or sax, was universal in Northern Europe. Carried and used by the Saxons, Angles, Vikings and German tribes, its use probably dates before the fall of Rome and continues on into the early Middle Ages. From small knives with 3-4 inch blades to actual swords with blades of 27-28 inches, always single-edged, the profile of the seax varied a great deal. The original version of this large knife served from camp work to cutting work, on shipboard, and for fighting if a sword or axe was not available. The lobed pommel and guard are brass, and the wood grip is studded with brass tacks, for a very secure and comfortable grip. The blade is etched on both sides, flat ground, and capable of taking and holding a razor sharp edge. The leather sheath has been riveted and laced like the originals and features two thong slots. Details: Total length: 19" Blade length: 13" Blade width: 1 5/8" Blade thickness: 1/8" Weight: 1 lbs.
