  • German Longsword

    We call this elegant edged weapon a "German Longsword," but this type of blade was widely used in Europe during the Late Middle Ages. Its slender shape, acute point and lack of fuller predetermine this sword for use as a thrusting weapon against knightly plate armor. Wielding this blade with two hands greatly increased the probability of scoring a hit in the enemy's weak spot. Our German long sword features a hilt with a striking design: the meander incised in the crossguard is repeated in the pear-shaped pommel. The wooden grip is wrapped in smooth, brown leather for increased control and comfort.

    Our German Longsword comes with a brown leather scabbard including a mount and chape.

  • 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.

  • Swept Hilt Rapier

    This Swept-Hilt Rapier features classical lines, with a high-carbon steel flex-tempered blade, a stainless steel hilt (for reduced maintenance) and a hardwood grip. The hilt is of the same size as the museum piece on which it is based, providing an authentic “feel” in the user’s hand and weight and balance also match originals. The blade is interchangeable with our “Practical” blade (OH2255) which is designed for safety in rapier sparring. The matching Main Gauche (SH2198) may also be equipped with a sparring blade. 

    Our Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
