One-Handed Swords

One-handed swords were first developed by the Celts of northern Europe and the British Isles, who fought from horseback. Similar longer bladed swords were quickly adopted by the Romans in the form of the Spatha which was used by their mounted troops. One-handed swords saw use across Europe for cutting through mail armor and leather armor, and slashing (draw-cutting) for mounted and foot combat. As armor evolved in the High Middle Ages into complete suits of plate, the blades developed into more effective thrusting weapons. However, the swords were still capable of inflicting damage with slashing strokes on lightly armored rank and file soldiers. 

Museum Replicas offers an array of these fantastic weapons. For instance, the medieval period is well represented by swords of the Crusades and from Viking, Scottish, and Middle Eastern history. These include such weapons as the Sword of King Richard, Ulfberht, and Scimitar. Those more into the Renaissance will find the Schiavona and the Mortuary Half Basket Hilt Swords particularly enjoyable. Also, we offer a wonderful range of American Civil War sabers and swords. These are just a sample of the many excellent one-handed swords in the selection. Our products are made of high carbon steel and other authentic materials and forged with state-of-the-art technology, guaranteeing both substance and style!

Review of: Faithkeeper - Sword of the Knights Templar

I bought  this  sword  because  it in  stock  and  the  Templar  Accolade  wasn't . I'm  so happy with  this  one  that  I ordered  the  Accolade .  I had it  sharpened  and engraved  with  my   initials. I'm  pleased  with  the quality  job . The  blade  has  good  balance  and  flexibility .  The leather  work is excellent . I especially  like  the  length  of  the  grip and the  balance  the pommel  provides .

Review of: Leif Erikson Sword

Another fine blade I wish was for myself, as it was a gift for a friend as well. The additional sharpening and engraving came out terrific as usual, options I always opt for if available. A very fine blade that was beautifully crafted with a scabbard and belting that astonished my friend upon receiving it! Go for it, you will not be sorry!!!

Review of: Battlecry Acre Crusader Broadsword

I was looking for something that I would not feel bad if in the course of practicing I were to scratch it or ding it.    The Battlecry collection was made for this.  I have several MR's swords and knives, most all of them I use a wall hangers as they are too beautiful to risk damage, even if it is only cosmetic.  Not so with this.  It feels the same as my other one-hander but I won't feel bad if I scratch the blade or chip an edge.   Well done Museum Replicas.

Review of: Sword of the Viking King

Great prop sword (non-sharpened version.) The details and craftsmanship on this are spectacular. It's striking. Scabbard just as much as the sword proper... The leather is good quality and well sealed/finished... it doesn't seem like the color is going to rub off on clothing like some other manufacturers seem to have trouble with accomplishing. Overall, very happy with this purchase!

Review of: Battlecry Acre Crusader Broadsword

I'm impressed with the look and feel of this finely created blade. It's my first from the series, but my fourth blade from Windlass. Shipped lightning fast, and was surprised at how well it was packaged. Even came in it's own box, inside the shipping box. Well coated in rust blocking (I don't want to call it grease) but it's something like it, which I cleaned off and used a lighter oil in its stead. I'm by no means a swordsman, I'm more fascinated by the history and various weapons of the period. I'll carry it at Faire and look at it on the wall otherwise. The scabbard is beautifully crafted and looks durable and well made.  As stated previously, it's not my first blade from Windlass, and it certainly won't be my last. Very pleased with my purchase, and between the sale, it being the deal of the day, plus points I had on my account, the price was literally a steal, I couldn't pass on it. If you decide to order this blade, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with its quality and overall looks and performance.

Very nice, well made, attractive, solid. Perhaps a bit heavy.

Review of: Shrewsbury Sword

The one I own was from their run in the early to mid 90's. But it's a great sword! I handled one of the new ones last May

Review of: Faithkeeper - Sword of the Knights Templar

Superbly rendered example of this sword.   Nicely balanced and a bit more useful as a hand and a half sword with the smoothed and round pommel, compared to the Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar which has a shorter grip and a more decorative pommel.   Very nicely constructed and you can tell by looking at the spot where the crossguard and blade meet that modern epoxy was used to fill the joint.   These weapons are superior in every way to the originals and it will hold a cherished place in my collection.

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

Top notch professionals working here. We needed the Knights Templar Accolade Sword for my grandsons wedding. The sword was on back order with a minimum 4-6 week wait.  We had exactly 4 weeks before the wedding. I called Atlanta Cutlery and Mia was so helpful and made every inquiry to get our sword to us on time. We are now 13 days away from the wedding and we received the sword yesterday. We could not have been more pleased and grateful. We presented to our son so he could used to it before the wedding. The sword was beautifully well made as well as the scabbard. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us and making sure my grandson’s wedding day was complete.

Review of: 1860 Light Cavalry Union Saber

I had never bought a sword before, but I wanted one for my brother. I did quite a bit of research before deciding this site was my best bet for getting something not just for decoration. It came well-wrapped and oiled, and was completely satisfactory in every way! Now I want all of them! And I love that you can get points, because there are so many other things Museum Replicas offers that I love too!
