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.

I received this hammer as a Christmas present and was very pleased.  It currently has a place of honor in my display case.

Review of: Bec de Corbin

I love this weapon. I appreciate the elegance of the sheer practicality of it: this is a large, functional weapon for taking down armored opponents. While it resembles some war hammers offered on the site, the extended hook (raven's beak), which actually has the thickness and weight of a dagger, which contributes to the weapon having both a wicked look about it and its austere beauty. Displaying the weapon required some ingenuity due to it having spikes that extend from the sides of the head of the weapon as well, but that is my only negligible criticism. It looks terrific on my wall and retains a tight, solid feel after all the swinging it around I have put it through. I am very satisfied with this weapon and would buy it again, no reservations.

Review of: Bosworth Longsword

I am extremely pleased with this sword. For me, it essentially serves a decorative purpose and exceeds in that capacity. The blued finish has a gorgeous detail that is difficult to make out in the website's pictures. Paired with the shining silver blade, it is a beautiful sword. I must state that while it spends most of its time on display, I did not want to hang any weapon that isn't functional as well; it feels good in-hand, arrives pre-sharpened, and while I've only cut pumpkins with it there was no problem there... I honestly thought I somehow missed the pumpkin, my first strike; it didn't move. This sword cleanly bisected it laterally into two halves! Very fun :) My only reservation is that while the sword arrives "scissor sharp", I am reluctant to attempt to further sharpen it due to wanting to preserve the beautiful blue-black finish.  I believe this is a terrific weapon for the price, and am completely satisfied with this purchase.

Review of: Monk's Robe and Hood

I am very impressed with the quality. Hand made out of cotton I believe, not nylon or polyester like the the fake stuff you find in a costume store. I ordered the standard size and if fits me (5’8”, 180 lbs) loosely as a monk’s robe should. It’s warm, not too hot. I suspect the only thing keeping this from being 100% real is I doubt monks wore dry clean only habits.

Review of: Sword of Homildon Hill

The Sword of Homildon Hill is an exceptionally good offering from Windlass. The sword is quite elegant to look at with a very pleasing aesthetic. The decorative guard and pommel have a surprisingly nice looking antique applied to it. Usually, I am not a fan of these types of techniques, but this one is pulled of quite nicely. The peen on the pommel is a little rough looking but nothing that distracts greatly from it. Plus, the fact that the blade IS peened is certainly a plus.
The blade is very nice as well, with the engraving on it looking top notch. It does not suffer from any "whippiness" as some Windlass blades have been known to do. It handles quite nicely, in fact, with a lot of the weight being balanced towards the handle. This makes for a very responsive sword that can swing and change direction easily. It can even be wielded in one hand with moderate ease. I am not certain of its cutting capabilities, however, as I do not currently have a set up for test cutting. It does feel like it would do well, but since it does not feel very blade heavy I cannot say for certain.
The scabbard is a surprisingly good fit, something that Windlass usually struggles to get right. It also has a very nice looking antique applied to the metal which compliments the sword well.
Overall, I think this is a must buy for any Windlass fan, or anyone looking to get an above average budget sword.
