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: 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.

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!

Review of: 1840 Non Commissioned Sword
Excellent, Simple, Functional, Period Correct Definitely in my top 3 Windlass swords! With the “Accolade”and “European Sword”. I am VERY pleased with all of my “Period Sabres” from Windlass/ACC, especially their Civil War pieces. The “Union Staff and Field Officer” being the Sabre I want next, when money permits. DON’T BE FOOLED, this is NOT a dress sword. It is solid, grippy, attractive, and functional! However it could, and I’m sure was used for dress and parade. If you want to add a little more authenticity to this sword, ask MRL to give it a “Service Sharpening”. This is where the small area on the back of the blade past the fuller is sharpened, and only half of the front edge is sharpened. The business half of course. This was a very common sharpening method back then, and was considered “Gentlemanly”. BUT, I’m not sure if MRL will do a service sharpening. I would call them first. The brass handle is excellent, and grippy. A wire wrap has basically been carved into the handle, providing an excellent purchase on the sword. High quality steel scabbard, with steel rings for hanging on your belt. Which I have done on a few special evenings and occasions, received quite a few compliments AND looks from the Ladies 👍. All in all this is an excellent sword. A+ in my book, especially for the price.

Review of: Eglinton Basket-Hilt Sword
This is probably my favorite basket-hilt sword in my collection. The unique and intricate basket is well made and encloses the complete hand. The blade, although a bit heavy, is thick and sturdy. The wire wrapped ray skin handle looks great and is very tightly assembled. 2 thumbs up!
