  • Mercenary Sword

    The Mercenary is an imposing sword in the 15th century style. Paul Chen offers this sword with  a triple-fullered blade, steel S-curve guard and scent stopper pommel. Supplied with a leather-covered belt scabbard.

    Paul Chen  swords are crafted in much the same way as swords were made centuries ago, except now the blades are forged from high-carbon spring steel. The blade finish is far from being polished agian more closley replicating what the medieval swordsmith was able to achieve. Except as noted the grips are leather covered hardwood. Fittings are either steel or solid brass. These swords will appeal to the re-enactor who wants a sword with the same appearance as the originals.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The blade is German in origin, but the hilt and blade are contemporary.The hilt is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, while the blade is forged in high-carbon steel.

  • 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.

  • Sir William Marshal Sword - Forged

    The  single-hand Marshall Sword by Paul Chen  epitomizes 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. The Hanwei  SH2000 version features a forged high-carbon 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. See models SH2001 for the forged-folded version and SH2046 for the “Practical” version of the Marshall sword.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Albrecht II Hand-and-a-Half Sword

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.
