Gladius - Maintz Pattern
The Roman army’s approach to warfare was direct and pragmatic. It chose the gladius as its principal sidearm because it was practical and efficient and excelled in any close combat situation. The early gladius (our version is the Maintz pattern) was wasp waisted with a long point that combined cutting power and stabbing ability in one handy weapon. This is the sword that conquered most of the known world. Made of high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts. Originals were excavated from the ruins of Pompeii. You can see examples in H. Russell Robinson’s book What The Soldiers Wore On Hadrian’s Wall'. This gladius in the maintz pattern has a faux ivory grip with ornate brass applique on the scabbard. It can be sharpened for additional fee.

Landsknecht Battle Sword
Closeout, Was $235, Now Only $149!
Not all of the “double pay” soldiers carried the large two hander with the parrying hooks on the blade. Some opted for smaller, quicker two-handers. Most all of the officers carried this sword, and the great Landsknecht Captain, George Frundsberg, is known to have carried one on his last campaign (at the tender age of 82). Larger than the standard hand-and-a-half sword, and intended for two hands. In the wild melee after the initial clash of the pikes, there was little room for any fancy sword work, just brutal chopping, and this sword was quite good for that! Strong, wide blades were capable of denting and crushing the toughest armor. This was the period of the infantry, when the armored knight was being replaced, and the firearm had not yet shown its fearsome abilities. The foot soldier, wearing armor, but not fully encased in steel, was vulnerable to the sword and axe. High carbon steel. Wood grip are covered with leather. Steel pommel and crossguard. Includes scabbard. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Medieval Horseman's Axe
In earlier ages the axes taken to a battle were the same ones used in everyday work That, however, is not the case with this axe; it was made for war. The down curved, wedge shaped blade coupled with the curved shaft made for a very powerful cutting arc that could shear through mail and badly damage the simple plate that was in use at the time. When reversed, all of the force of the blow was concentrated on the back hammer poll and could crush a helmet. In the hands of a mounted knight this type of heavy headed axe was devastating to men on the ground and on horseback alike. It could split mail helms and shields, and the extended back poll could easily crush bone. The curve of the hardwood shaft added to the power of the blow. An excellent fighting axe and a devastating “high-tech” weapon for its age.
