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, 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 Bannockburn Sword

I was not sure what to expect when I picked this up on the deal of the day, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is one of those swords that shows better in person. The blade has authority but the hilt is large enough for a second hand if needed. Everything is right and tight and the double fullers a executed beautifully.

Review of: Late Scottish Broadsword

I saw a photo of the sword was copied from.  It was in the National Museum of Antiquities in Scotland and the sword was dated circa 1570.   The Windlass reproduction looks very much like it.  This is a HEAVY sword!  The hilt is so big I can get both of my long slender hands in it, (one on either side).  All of the pieces of the basket are very thick. The blade is well made and substantial.  The etchings on the blade are actually slightly cut into the blade, not just painted on.  I haven't cut anything yet but will once I sharpen it.  I am impressed!  If you get it you may want to check out Youtube's Matt Easton on Scholagladiatoria to learn exercises to strengthen your arm for a one handed sword.

Review of: The Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar

I purchased this for our son for his HS graduation.  I thought it appropriate for a young man entering into the world....or at least college.   He loved it.  I was so pleased with the quality and with the reaction received by our son.  He proudly displays it in his room.  I think the history of what it represents also has made an impact on him.  Not cheap but well worth the investment.

Review of: Eglinton Basket-Hilt Sword

I purchased this as a "Deal of the Day".  I've had my eye on it for quite a while and was delighted to see it come up on sale.  It's stunning.  Feels great in the hand.  Nice weight and balance.  I had it sharpened and am pleased with the blade.  This is an item that now looks to be on the closeout list.  I'd suggest getting it before it's gone.  You won't regret it.

Review of: Classic Medieval Sword

I have bought a few examples from different manufacturers of swords.  This is one of the better ones that I have.  The fit and finish is good.  The design is great.  The fact that this sword is "Battle Ready" is a cool plus.  I most likely will never need to use it as a weapon, but it is nice to know I could.  Overall, I am very happy with it.

Review of: Shrewsbury Sword

This sword just arrived today and I'm very happy with it. Fit and finish on the sword and scabbard are all excellent, with no loose parts. The optional sharpening is nice and even. This is a pretty good-sized sword but the balance is excellent. The handle diameter is on the large size - not a serious problem for me, but if your hands are smaller (glove size medium or smaller) it might make your grip fairly open... Altogether a lovely sword!
