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: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

This is my first sword as I am a firearms guy. The quality is very good and balance not bad. I do have to say that most sights including MR had this sword lited as backordered with ant eta of March. I received it from MR in just a few days! I know how to clean and protect firearms so hopefully I can learn to clean protect and preserve this sword. G-Lo Florida

Review of: Eglinton Basket-Hilt Sword

This beautiful back sword is balanced for the thrust. It has an intricately detailed basket. A real knockout for looks. I found that the basket came too far around so that it hit my wrist on both sides on cutting strokes (admittedly not the main purpose for this sword). I removed the last loop on the bottom of each side of the basket with a Dremel tool and the problem was solved. Not too much to do for a sword of this quality. The basket still looks great, even with the slight modification.

Review of: Munich Sword

The sword feels heavy at the hilt, but it balances at 4-5" above the hilt, just as it should. I found the handle was a bit short for my medium sized hands, so I reduced the bead at the bottom end with a Dremel tool. It was easy to do and added the necessary length. This is an excellent cut and thrust design - with emphasis on the thrust.

Review of: Mercenary Schiavona Half Basket-Hilt Sword

The sword is perfectly balanced: POB 4-5" above the hilt. The basket is really beautiful. The blade at 33" is a bit shorter than many Schiavonas, but is well tempered. The sheath has beautiful engraving and is antiqued. The antiquing isn't perfectly even, but good enough for this price point.

Review of: Late Scottish Broadsword

This is a magnificent sword! The basket is large enough to fit my middle size hands when wearing a gauntlet. The basket is also fabulously detailed. Depending on how you count them, there are 30 odd welds in it. Balance is 5" above the basket as it should be and is intended to support cutting rather than thrusting. The etching and engraving are tops!

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

I found the best price on this sword here on Museum Replicas during their 900 Anniversary of the Templars Sale. Upon ordering it did state back ordered with ETA of late Feb or Early March. I was very surprised when I got an alert of a Priority Mail Package from my USPS account on Jan 21st. It was my sword! Super fast shipping and very well packaged/protected. I am new to long blades and I am very happy with this one being my first. The only thing I would change is for the scabbard to secure the blade at least a bit better so that it doesn't fit so loosely. Other than that I have no complaints. Thank you Museum Replicas and Atlanta Cutlery for your fast shipping of my  Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar.
