Review of: Leather Swordsman Vambraces

Review of: Helmet of Castile

I flipped out when I first saw this helm in the Museum Replicas catalog and had to have it! When i got it it was heavier than expected. But it is magnificent! I wear this with my Knights Templar tunics and it has made me feel more like a lord, rather than just a knight. I display it in my library on a stand, when I am not wearing it.

Review of: Falchion Sword

I just received my Falchion from MRL, when it went on DoD I had to grab it, despite some reviews calling it a battle machete or poorly balanced ( which seems to be a misconception of the historical Falchion)  I was surprised to hold a wonderful weapon.  The PoB is about 4 and a half from hilt, good for a slicer but handles well in the recovery and is not the "medieval machete " many reviews called it.  It is a slicing sword, and is balanced as such.  The nice heavy pommel aids in recovery as well.  Very nice piece, would definately recommed.

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

The craftsmanship of this blade was impeccable.  I ordered this sword on December 29th, 2018 and received it on March 28th, 2018. Three months was a small price to pay for such a well-made sword!

Reading some of the other reviews here, and even seeing some of the videos covered on this product on YouTube had worried me a bit after ordering, though having the sword in hand made me smile.  It completed defied any of the negative rumors, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it surpassed all of my expectations.

For someone like me who belongs to a Living History Group, a seriously under-rated feature of this product is the scabbard and sword-belt.  This belt is not only beautiful, but functional.  Past belts have dramatically sagged from the weight of pouches, swords, and other trinkets/bobbles.  This girdle is one of the finest upholstery I've ever warn. I can put it on once over my armor, and be sure I will never have to readjust it until it comes time to take it off. Marvelous!

The blade itself captures the spirit of the Knights Templar. While it may be a bit more fantastical than what the majority of most Templars owned; historically speaking, it resonates the mantra of the Templar code, which to me is far superior to 100% flawless accuracy. That is not to dismiss this sword as being fictional.  It's components are very believable, and are affixed from a variety of different realistic sword styles.

The pommel, is a very nice touch. It adds nice counterbalance to the blade. More-over, the design upon the pommel's face is perfect.  It is important for me that a Templar sword have the Psalm 115 invocation, as well as the sigilum militum X pisti, and they managed to incorporate both.

They did a good job using actual Templar heraldry, and not just stereotypical cross shapes. this is a sword made passionately by medievalists, for medievalists. And I will maintain this was one of the best purchases I've ever made.

A special thanks to Museum Replicas and Atlanta Cutlery!

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

As a descendant of a Templar Master, I couldn’t choose a better symbol to honour my lineage. When I purchased my sword, I decided to have it sharpened so it was true to the heart of the Templar code.
Because my sword is sharpened, I am unable to engage in combat, and I intend to purchase a second one unsharpened. When I take to the field of battle, I shall wear both swords, along with a finely crafted metal Templar shield.
I take my connection with the Templar order very seriously, as with other great figures of history from my family tree.
I have used my sharpened blade for testing the edge, for ease of use in combat, and those who say it is too heavy, I strongly disagree, the sword is well balanced, and can easily change direction of your swing while maintaining the same strength of the blow.
If you find it too heavy, then you need to strengthen both arms with practice.

Review of: Mail Armor Coif

I just received this and am totally delighted with it.  I wasn't sure how good the quality would be considering the reasonable price but when I pulled it out and examined it, I was very impressed.  I put it on and walked in on my wife and son holding one of my recently acquired swords and once they were done laughing, they both agreed the coif looked very cool and quite authentic.  It fits great and though heavy...(as one would expect)...it is not difficult to wear for a long period.  This would be great at a Renaissance Fair or similar event.  I'm not sure where I'm going to use it but I'm glad I got it and I highly recommend it.

Review of: Sword of St. Maurice

Awesome Sword as as historical replica, but way to heavy to be a routine cutting sword. Very well made with great attention to detail.  Only small negative, ... a little surprised that the brass had a much darker look than shown in the photos, but not a real problem. My first sword ordered from Museum Replicas, even with sharpening, less than a week, to my door in Arizona. Awesome service!
