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: 1860 Heavy Cavalry Saber

This is a really nice example of a civil war sword.  Very thick blade.  It starts with around 1/3 inch thick at the hilt and tapers to around 1/8 inch thick at the tip.   From what I have read, that is more in line with the 1840 blade.  For the price, that would just be splitting hairs.  It is well made and seems very solid.  I am a collector and not someone who needs to defend himself with a sword.  I can tell you that it looks the part.  I do insist that my collect is only made from "battle ready" grade items.  I believe this sword meets that criteria also.  It comes with a well built full length steel scabbard that seems like it should double the cost of the package deal.  Overall this is in my opinion a good sword for a good value.

Review of: Viking Ulfberht

I have always been interested in Viking history and their equipment.  This must be the most iconic sword when talking about the Vikings.  I had to have it.  This sword feels solid but also lighter than I expected.  Quick to swing and recover.  The inlaid lettering is really nicely done.  Overall, it's a great sword.

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: Stiklestad Viking Sword

Beautifully detailed sword, nice weight, balance and feel in the hand.  Sharpening was fine for me, not sure if they've upgraded their process since the others have had issues.  Definitely recommend!

Review of: Munich Sword

I am very happy with this sword. It is beautiful and sturdy. It's a great sword for a person who is looking for a thrusting weapon but wants something a bit heftier and better for slashing/chopping, which I was.
