Medieval

The Medieval period lasted more than 700 years, from the Dark Ages to the dawn of the Renaissance. It was a time of re-organization and invention, with key advances in society, government and religion.  This era has left us with mythical figures like King Arthur and one where the weapons and armor of the time were truly instrumental in its shaping.  At MuseumReplicas.com we carry an extensive selection of accurately researched medieval weapons, arms, armor and clothing.

Medieval Mail Armor

One of the earliest uses of metal protection was chain mail armor.  Made up of tens of thousands of interlocking rings, it was woven by hand and formed into protective shirts, coifs and even leggings. Chain mail, or more properly "mail", dates back to antiquity; the name itself is derived from the Latin "macula" meaning "mesh of net." It is believed to have been invented by the Celts and adopted by the Romans after their warring with them. The use of mail continued until the presence of gunpowder increased in the 16th century.

Review of: Sword of Santa Casilda

I've loved the sword of Santa Casilda since I first saw it pictured in Ewart Oakeshott's THE SWORD IN THE AGE OF CHIVALRY (plates 18

Review of: Locksley Boots

I bought it for myself but the cut is a bit on the small side, however they turned out to fit my son perfectly, who wears them every chance he gets. I had to replace the lacing after a solid 6 months of almost constant wear which is more than reasonable and I am very happy with how the boots have held up. My only suggestion is to purchase one to two sizes larger than your normal shoe size.

Review of: Sword of Robert the Bruce

I cannot express how impressed I am with this sword. The quality and beauty of this weapon was everything I had hoped for and more. It is well balanced as a combat blade and simply exquisite as a display piece. I purchased it as a gift for my son, sharpened and engraved and has quickly become his most prized possession. I could not be happier with my purchase!

Review of: Visored Bascinet

Very nice quality helmet, fits perfectly with the MRL helmet liner and the MRL maille coif. With this helmet what you see is what you get. It's sturdy, battle ready, and with a little practice you can open and close the visor quickly. Also when up, the visor stays up, if not, pull the visor up and give it a very delicate twist. Remember you can buy a padding kit if you really need to adjust the helmet. Adjust the helmet to where your eyes are even with the eye slits for best visibility. Remember, however, the closer the faceplate is to your face, the more likely you would be to suffer facial damage, especially your nose. But this was the norm at that time. Mis-shapen noses were a badge of honor as everyone knew you were a tourney jouster, man-at-arms, etc. All around a great helmet!!! No kiddie costume junk here!!! The real deal.

Review of: Mail Gauntlets

Very pleased with these!! Costume gauntlets they ARE NOT!!!
These are the real deal and very high quality. The leather gloves, the maille, the steel plates... One thing I would point out, that you might not be able to see from the picture, is the steel vambrace starting at the opening of the glove, is not one solid piece of steel, but 6 strips of steel, 3 on top, 3 underneath.
I didn't know this when I ordered them, but am GLAD they are!! It makes for a much more custom fit. I have hands that are a little bit on the "thick" side, and from the top of my middle finger to the bottom of my palm is exactly '7 inches, so I ordered Size Medium; and they fit..... Well, "Like a glove", lol.

Review of: Francesca Axe

Excellent medium size fighting/throwing axe. I love the old timey blacksmith look they give the axe head, and for the price it just can't be beat. I have one at the moment, am considering ordering 2 more to be more historically accurate. Factoid: The Franks would use the slightly curved handles not only for more accurate throwing, but if they were to miss their target the axe would continue to spin and "bounce" at the Roman masses. Terrifying!! All in all an excellent buy and MRL/ACC sells replacement shafts for cheap.

Review of: Arming Cap, Quilted

Great arming cap. I wear it under my MRL Mail Coif and my MRL Visored Bascinet. Now the Arming Cap itself is a touch on the thin side, BUT if it were any thicker whatsoever my mail and helmet would be too tight. As of now they all fit perfect!! Not just trying to get reward points here. This arming cap is well put together and made to last, and mine has seen plenty of Renaissance Faires! Grab one,  you won’t regret it 👍😊

Review of: Mordred Gambeson

Absolutely love this Gambeson!  The neck and cuffs are very high quality suede. As far as the colors of the Gambeson are concerned they are practically the same as what you see on the website or in the catalog. One thing that really attracted me was the overall gray color, it looks good with pretty much anything! 👍. I am a heavyset 5’8 tall 200 pounds ( mostly muscle ) 😊
and the S/M fits me like a glove. It was missing 2 silver (studs)? Anyway easy fix. Now the arms are thicker than the torso piece as far as protection. But that’s fine as I plan to wear a surcoat or possibly a sleeveless mail shirt. Overall an EASY 4.5 or 5 stars ⭐️. It fits right in with the rest of my MRL/ACC collection. Will be wearing it next month to our Scottish Festival representing Clan Stewart of Galloway, looks GREAT with my kilt. Off topic I live in Panama City Florida, and we were almost wiped off the map by Hurricane Michael, and cleaning, sharpening and oiling my MRL/ACC collection has helped me keep my sanity. 10th day without power but we finally got our internet. I am considering treating myself, (if funds allow), when the power and major shipping companies are back up. Perhaps the Sticklestad Viking Sword? Anyways now I’m rambling. This is an excellent Gambeson! Not just trying to get reward points here. I highly recommend it!!
