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, Claymore, 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: Stiklestad Viking Sword

Great sword. As MR offers a wide variety of quality Viking swords, it was tough to chose which one to buy. Didn’t go wrong as I’m extremely happy with my purchase. Thinking already to but another one of the other Viking swords because this one it so nice. As always, had this sword sharpened. Well balanced when using. Great add to my collection.

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

Great Sword!! I would recommend this piece to anyone.....but with a BIG WARNING. Maybe mine was just a bad batch, I don't know. But the POMMEL and the CROSSGUARD are BRASS. They are only plated with the silverish steel color. Now I take very good care of my collection, which is quite large so it can be quite the task at times. I am most certainly not trying to brag, and I am most definitely not rich lol. I just have a deep seeded fascination with military history, and the beauty and craftsmanship of a nice blade be it an Egyptian Khopesh, a Roman Gladius, a German Greatsword, or any of the beautiful Sabers used to help carve out the New World. Now out of my collection 17 are Windlass Blades, save for the Battlecry Buckler and the Battlecry Fiore' Warhammer, both of which are excellent! Especially the Hammer. An awesome grey/black Gambeson, Grey Huntingdon pants to match, Maille Gauntlets, my newest order was the Norman Tunic W/Belt, the Huntingdon Pants and an English Bowie. The Bowie was out of stock but I'm sure I will receive it in due time. The Visored Bascinet Helmet. Not to mention small nick-nacks, gifts for friends, etc. And I have to say I absolutely love everything I own from Windlass/MRL/ACC. For anybody that has been polite enough to read all of this so far I will throw you a secret, Windlass BEST SWORD.... ready?
"The European Sword by Windlass". Yep, pick one up if you don't believe me, if you can find one that is.
OK onto the bad part of this review. Like I said the Accolade Sword pommel and crossguard are made of brass and simply plated in a silvery metallic.. something.
Like I said I take very good care of my entire collection, I use Flitz on all of my swords or any other weapons or armor that may need it. I like the results I get from Flitz and it is also recommended by Windlass to use it, and they also carry it for sale I believe. Now unfortunately I was not aware of the brass pommel and crossguard on the Accolade and polished it like I would any of my swords. After wiping it away the pommel and guard were a blackish-gold color. So I waited awhile and tried again to see if I could get the original color back but to no avail. Awhile later I contacted customer service, and the lady was VERY NICE and apologized and told me exactly what to do. So I followed her instructions and took quite a few pictures of the sword and the pommel and crossguard, and emailed them to the address she gave me. I believe it was Windlass or MRL Tech/Info, I will dig into my address book and see. Well that was a couple months ago and still no word from them nothing. Now just like everyone else out there I am a busy person, and the Accolade is part of a large collection. I'm just really dissapointed that MRL would drop the ball on this one, especially with the Accolade being one of their premier swords. SO, do I recommend this sword? ABSOLUTELY!
Just keep any kind of abrasive cleaner or polish AWAY FROM IT.
Now I love MRL, and will keep buying their products, in fact their new Knights Templar sword really caught my eye. Just really dissapointed in a company I have been purchasing from for 10 plus years. Anyways just heed my warning and you will love this sword.

Review of: Battlecry Acre Crusader Broadsword

This sword is great!  Seemingly indestructible and very enjoyable to wield.  Last weekend I used it (to my neighbors amusement) to take down a small tree in the yard.  Not even a dent or chip on the edge.  My only complaint is that the pommel was slightly canted to one side.  This is in no way detrimental to the functionality though.  But for a $264 sword, I won't complain.

Review of: Scimitar

I was so enthralled to receive this in the mail.
It was shipped promptly and expeditiously. I was not disappointed, the sharpness is great as well as the overall craftsmanship. The wood on the handle was excellent. The guard also was crafted wonderfully.

However, what really caught me was the blade flexiblity which is indicative of a good heat treating process.

Besides this the weapon handles wonderfully, with the right amount of weight distribution.

Review of: Viking Ulfberht

Excellent solid sword.  Great Windlass quality.  I have many other swords in my collection, many Windlass.  Ulfberht is etched deep.  I believe the originals were inlayed but I wouldn't be able to afford one built like that. Steel is polished to mirror finish.  Leather wrap on handle is good.  Pommel and handle secured by hammering over end of tang.  Nice and tight. Blade rings when struck on side showing good temper.  Balance seems good to me.  Blade was sharp.  Good addition to my collection.

Beautiful blade with superb craftmanship!! The blade was perfect! Super sharp and oiled to perfection! The leather was if the highest quality and the handle fit perfect in my big hand. I highly recommend it and it was almost perfectly accurate from the time. I can't wait to wear it at my wedding!
