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: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

Up-date of review of 2016, the sword is still in excellent condition, ages very, very, well, assuming it is maintained as RECOMMENDED, as well the leather works that came with it. If you aren't sure about what to do, DON'T use any part of the sword to learn on. Even something as simple as cleaning/polishing, if done incorrectly,, can make "matters worse.". Seek "professional advice" about the care of ALL parts, if you have concerns. Be less concerned about your "EGO" by asking or admitting advice is needed. Over half a century I've learned that asking for help is far better than damaging your investment by not asking.

Review of: Battlecry Maldon Viking Sword

The sword comes with a good edge and smooth finish, it is a bit blade heavy as this style of sword would be, and is not overly heavy. Very durable and would be hard to break.

Review of: Battlecry Acre Crusader Broadsword

Very good for the price, comes sharp and polished, the finish is smooth and consistent. I can't imagine it would ever break with regular use. It is a bit blade heavy though, but that's to be expected with this style of sword.

Review of: Viking Ulfberht

This is an excellent example of its type.  I have owned the sticklestad,  leuterit, and several other makes from this company and others.

Ulfberht is the one I've kept,  it handles the best for me. There is plenty of room in the grip while staying historically accurate.

The inscription is correct,  and sets it off while displayed on the wall. But hard use is where this sword shines. It is a great cutter with its spatulate tip,  mrl did a fantastic sharpening service.

This has held up well to the wooden pell, the tire pell, countless bottles,  and tatami.  In the shield wall,  it would be a limb claimer!  

Really well done,  outstanding value. I highly recommend this if you're in the market for a battle ready Viking sword.

Review of: Stiklestad Viking Sword

I've always wanted a real sword and after reading the review of the Stiklestad Viking Sword on Sword Buyers Guide (https://www.sword-buyers-guide.com/sticklestad-sword.html) I knew I had to have this one. I couldn't be happier! I'll be taking this with me to the afterlife. Thor be praised!

Review of: Ashdown Viking Sword

The sword is beautiful I can find no flaws whatsoever, straight and true. I wanted a real, true to period practical fighting sword that looks and feels like it could be swung in a hard fought protracted battle. This is it. The grip is big and comfortable, the sword seems well balanced and truly formidable. The scabboard is solid, well appointed and adds to the overall appeal of the sword. My only complaint is that I paid to have it engraved with my initials and it didn’t get done.
