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

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: European Sword

This sword is amaizing, a bit heavy, but amazing. No defect on the guard, on the pommel, nothing, even the scabbard fit perfectly. What do you want more ?

Review of: Sword of the Viking King

I own 141 swords in my collection the Vikings King Sword still my favourite.  I bought it mostly because of the nice attractive scabbard but actually love the look of this sword.  Maybe the small leather grip is not the best but overall I love it.

Review of: Thompson Saber

I had to return the CS Thompson saber I got for Christmas as the handle and backstrap were more than a few degrees off from alignment with the blade.  Even with this issue, the over all quality of the  sword was very good and was solid, lightweight and not overly tip heavy as some have reported.  I haven't got the replacement yet but it is worth mentioning that I received prompt, courteous and excellent service from Shelly in returns and that is everything in this kind of circumstance.  Good job Shelly and I hope your bosses appreciate you as much as I do.  I will update this when I recieve the new saber.  WMacLaren

Review of: Sword of Santa Casilda

Very nice x11 sword.  Hilt with some cosmetic differences from the original sword hilt, like placement of X's on the grip and brass instead of iron cross and pommel.  These are minor.   Look and feel of a historic piece.  (see E. Oakeshot "The Sword in the Age of Chivalry", fig. 18

Review of: Munich Sword

This is my second purchase in the same week from Museum Replicas.  Just like my first purchase of a rapier, this item was delivered timely and well packed.  I had this sword sharpened and was delighted with the edge.  It's a serious weapon.  The weight and balance are great for my size.  Workmanship is outstanding.  For the price, it is an excellent piece.  I will definitely be a returning customer.

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!

Review of: Acre Crusader Broadsword

Ok, I received the Acre sword as a second choice to the Agincourt because the Agincourt sword is backordered and no telling when I could get it. Immediately out of the box and into my hands you can see it and feel it... "This is a real sword!" I said out loud to myself. Great price for a great sword in my opinion. I am awaiting another...
