Battlecry by Windlass

The Battlecry line of historical swords, daggers and axes has been designed in conjunction with John Clements, whose knowledge of historical fencing and Medieval and Renaissance fighting methods is unsurpassed. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts, the 1065 high carbon steel is tempered in computer controlled ovens to an RC in the low 50's. This ensures strength, resiliency and edge retention. Swords have extra wide full tangs and all weapons are sharpened.

Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a stone washed, blackened finish. Each is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing inspection they receive the armorers stamp on the blade. A certificate is included with each, signed by the craftsman that worked on your blade. Also included is a matching sheath and, when applicable, frog.

Watch this exciting line in action!

Review of: Battlecry Culloden Basket-Hilt Sword

The Battlecry Culloden is becoming more and more scarce. I highly recommend this piece as a viable alternative to the overpriced (and frankly somewhat boring) comparable Cold Steel and Hanwei offerings of the typical red tassle.....Scottish basket hilt. I also trust the quality control with Windlass Battlecry line products. I should know, I own them all.  So scoop one of these while you can and be confident that it will tolerate some abuse if need be!

Review of: Battlecry Culloden Basket-Hilt Sword

Received this sword yesterday, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. The construction is outstanding, the balance and feel are perfect, and its more modern finish makes it ruthlessly effective and practical. I am very happy with this purchase, and the Battlecry line of products in general. I'm glad I talked myself into buying this, because I would've regretted missing out! For anyone that is looking for a practical Scottish basket-hilt that values functionality above everything, this is the blade for you!

Review of: Battlecry Fiore War Hammer

My first purchase from the Battlecry line and it exceeded all expectations! Outstanding. Solid. Massive. Love the finish!

Interesting the earlier comment about not liking the square handle. I think it's a more authentic look, and when wielding in battle chances are good that fighters wore gauntlets or at very least gloves.

Review of: Battlecry Crecy War Dagger

I picked this dagger up to fill a void in my collection and to see if I would be interested in other Battlecry weapons.

I would say it is impressive. The balance is good, and the edge is strong. It is well built and solid even after taking a couple good hits and being dropped. The scabbard is above expectation and the frog it came with is far better than expected.

There is considerable bang for your buck with this dagger, it has the looks and the function.

Review of: Battlecry Fiore War Hammer

This Warhammer means serious business. Totally solid, nothing loose, like the "Battlecry" look. Long enough to knock a rider off his horse and a RAZOR sharp spike for finishing the job. 500 years ago I would have felt totally confident bringing this to a real battlefield.

Bought as a gift for my husband, he loves it and says it is a good quality dagger. Much better than others he has.

Review of: Battlecry Fiore War Hammer

This warhammer is built just as tough as the rest of the battlecry line. Love the finish, love the color, and it feels brutally dangerous in the hand. Only downside is that whatever they used to blacken the handle will stain your hands when you initially handle it. There just seems to be an excess of stuff  on the handle. I had to wipe it off repeatedly with a paper towel until it no longer did that. Handle is still just as black as it was, so it's all good.
