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: Battlecry Maldon Viking Sword

I'd been looking at the Maldon Sword and matching Maldon Seax for quite some time before finally buying both to add to my collection. They arrived quickly and were well-packaged. Both are solidly constructed, well-balanced, and beautiful to look at. Both scabbards came with a nice leather frog, which was a pleasant surprise. Both blades are also very sharp and I can't wait to do some test cutting with them! Well worth the money!

Review of: Stiklestad Viking Sword

This is a very nice version of a classic sword.  Light and easily wielded with one hand.  Balance is a bit forward, but provides the force needed for a slashing blow, as was intended.  Builds up strong wrists.  The detailing on the pommel is a nice touch.  I got the sharpening, and it is worth every penny.  Sliced straight through both sides of the box with barely more effort than the weight of the sword itself.  Very reasonably priced for the quality.

Review of: Classic Medieval Sword

Great quality, and I have nothing but positive things to say. It was a gift for my husband and he was beyond thrilled with it. He had requested it to be sharpened also, so I paid extra for that. And guess what? They actually DO sharpen it, and it is razor sharp, so I am also pleased with them for following through with that. I will order from this company again, because it is clear that they take their business seriously and want to please their customers.

Review of: Sword of Avalon

Museum Replicas has really out done  themselves once again. This is the most awesome sword . The fit and finish is excellent. I have always loved the edge geometry of the double edged sharply tapering blade.  The sword feels extremely well balanced. I look forward to seeing how well it cuts cardboard mailing tubes.I had the sword professionally sharpened.  Well worth the price.  If you are a Collector of swords  you really need to purchase this sword.
