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!
