  • Practical Cup Hilt Rapier

    Fencing in the Renaissance style plays a prominent part in historical re-enactment, combining the quickness of light blades with the structure and spirit of the duel. Designed for the rapier fencer with a preference for the cup-hilt style who wishes to spar in safety, This Paul Chen  Practical Cup-Hilt Rapier from Hanwei fits the bill perfectly. The rapier blade is similar in design to the practical blades for the swept-hilts but the length of the tang is adapted to the cup-hilt. The Hanwei SH2262 Main Gauche matches this rapier.

  • Albrecht II Hand-and-a-Half Sword

    Our Hand-and-a-Half Sword crafted by Paul Chen is replicated from a sword thought to be that of Albrecht II of Austria and represents the pinnacle of beauty and balance in medieval swords. Classically simple in design with a flattened diamond-section blade and cruciform hilt, the original dates from the early part of the 15th century. The “Lion Rampant” emblem of the Habsburg dynasty is engraved in the pommel, while the Passau “Running Wolf” guild mark and a marigold maker’s mark appear on the blade fuller. Both the grip and the scabbard are leather covered over a cord wrap.See Hanwei models SH2034N for the antique-finished version and SH2106 for the “Practical” version of the Hand-and-a-Half sword.

  • Sir William Marshal Sword - Damascus Steel

    The Paul Chen single-hand Damascus Steel Marshall Sword from Hanwei sets new standards of quality and authenticity in broadsword construction. The sword is based on an original, now in a British museum, used by one of England’s finest knights, Sir William Marshall, who served the crown faithfully under Henry II, Richard the Lionheart and Jack Lackland. This sword features a forged - folded Swedish powder steel blade with excellent handling characteristics. Tempered to a tough HRC 54, the blade section features a central ridged fuller and full-length distal taper - a tough test for the bladesmith but resulting in a superb combination of speed and strength. The grip is leather wrapped and laced and the guard and pommel are elegant in their functional simplicity. The scabbard is leather-covered with steel mounts. Truly a sword for the connoisseur.

  • Scottish Claymore

    Mainstay of the Highland warriors of the late 15th and 16th centuries, the Claymore had a uniquely styled hilt that sets it apart from other great swords of the period. Typically of hand-and-a-half length, this versatile weapon could deliver great sweeping slashes or powerful thrusts. Replicated from a surviving museum piece our Claymore (SH2060) is classic in its design, with distinctive sloping quillons terminating in quatrefoils and a high-collared quillon block with langets following the blade fuller. The leather-covered grip is topped by a globate pommel.

  • Lowlander Claymore

    Wielded with untamed ferocity on many a Gaelic battlefield, the massive Lowlander sword vividly illustrates the might of the Scots of old. Known as "Slaughter-Swords" in the 16th century, these were the swords of choice for Scottish mercenaries of the period, and at close to six feet long the Lowlander (SH2065) faithfully replicates a surviving museum piece. Though by far the largest sword ever offered by The Knight Shop, the Lowlander is beautifully proportioned and balanced. The typically Scottish quatrefoils in the ring guards attest to the heritage of this imposing piece. A wall mount is provided to allow the transplanted Gael to display his sword with pride.

  • Practical Mortuary Hilt Sword

    The Practical Mortuary Hilt Sword is built for the reenactor. The basket is identical to that of the Hanwei SH2004 (no longer available) but the blade is unsharpened, with 1/16” edged and a rounded tip, complying with the combat rules of many re-enactment societies. The blade is crafted in 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which reduces edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness.

    Total length: 94cm
    Blade length: 77cm

  • Scottish Basket Hilt Broadsword

    Although Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain from the mid-sixteenth century on, their association with the seventeenth and eighteenth-century Scottish highlander has become legendary. Our Basket-Hilt Broadsword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. It is likely that the blade of the original sword, marked “Andrea Ferara”, was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined. The hilt is crafted of stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, while the blade is forged in high-carbon steel. The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine ray skin and the basket liner, like the original, is crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbard is leather-covered.

  • Bastard Sword - Antiqued

    The strong and fearless Swiss and Germans originally carried these early weapons, although Bastard swords soon became popular in other parts of continental Europe and the British Isles. The term “Bastard” undoubtedly comes from the fact that the sword, because of its design, has no legitimate claim to being classified as either a uniquely single-handed or two-handed weapon. The Bastard Sword was a weapon developed for the use of the foot soldier and had become quite common by the early 1500’s. The combat styles developed for the Bastard Sword were the particular speciality of the Northern Europe Cultures, with the German nations being at the forefront in its development and use. Our Bastard Sword is finished in an antique patina, making for an outstanding authentic appearance.

  • Practical Bastard Sword

    By customer request Paul Chen has produced a re-enactment version of our SH2250 Bastard sword. The blade is forged in 5160 high-carbon steel, to minimize burring, and the transverse thickness of the guard has been increased, both to provide adequate strength for re-enactment use and to present a safer profile at the ends of the guard. Another innovation is the provision of an all-leather scabbard, in contrast with the rigid scabbards normally provided with our Practical swords - this is designed both to provide an extra margin of safety when combatants fall on the scabbard in battle and also to minimze the need for replacement scabbards. The sword is supplied with the grip and scabbard in a neutral-colored leather to allow customization to the owners taste.

    Total Length: 126cm
    Blade Length: 97cm
    Handle Length: 23cm
    Weight: 1644g
    Blade Edge: 2.5-3mm

  • Godfred Viking Sword

    Named for the feared 8th century Viking raider, our Godfred Viking Sword is built around a beautifully patterned folded steel blade to replicate the pre-9th century originals. The interwoven leather grip, complemented by a Damascus guard and pommel, is matched by the leather-covered wood scabbard with bronze detailing and integral belt hooks. Superbly balanced, due to the deeply fullered distal tapered blade profile, the Godfred Viking Sword is a true tribute to the legendary Norse smiths.
