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: Confederate Staff & Field Officer's Sword

This sword has all amazing features. The only part that looks like it was made more cheaply is the sheath. The sword is solid construction, Welded full tang with a leather and gold wire wrapped grip. I got it sharpened, and the tip is sharp enough to easily break skin, but the edge could use some TLC. If you pay for sharpening, you are paying for an edge to be put on the blade, not for a sharp blade. The construction is great and the price is even greater. The only shortfalls are the sheath and the edge. Everything else is perfect. I give it 5 stars because this sword is worth the cost without the sheath and without the edge put on it. So for the price its a win-win, I just know that MRL has some amazing quality sheaths, but you pay for it. Also on their mastercraft swords, it seems that they put more time into the edge. Check out their mastercraft swords if you are a sword lover, you will not be dissapointed.

Review of: Munich Sword

Wow this thing! It feels significantly heavier than I expected, but I've never had anything other than katanas before, so this is actually my first one handed sword. That said, the construction is solid, and it feels good to hold. I don't think you'd be able to outmatch someone with a rapier using this thing, but it feels like it'd certainly fits the definition of a cut and thrust sword. My only real complaint is that the engraving is way smaller than I had hoped, but it was only an extra $5, so it's not a big deal. This is my first sword from Windlass Steelcrafts, and it's left a pretty good impression on me.

Review of: Munich Sword

I absolutely love this sword! It is perfect for my interpretation of Dread Pirate Roberts in cosplay. As I am not big on rapiers. It is like a hybrid between arming sword and rapier. Suits me extremely well.

I got this sword as a gift for my husband, who not only LOVES swords, knives, and weapons in general, he also loves the show Vikings and is proud to have Rollo as a (distant) ancestor.

Review of: Munich Sword

This is the one I'd grab off the wall!

It has very different balance as noted by other reviewers, most swords demand a glove/gauntlet be worn to "come alive" but this one more than most.

It really is a "Guard Sword" it wants to be held up to guard your face ready to deliver a right cross or skull bash.
The blade is heavy enough to break a drunken fops rapier and quick enough deliver a few nasty cuts of your own with a point that will pierce light armor with ease!

Review of: Viking Ulfberht

I picked one of these up recently as the deal of the day at a very reasonable price. I was looking for something close to a 11th century Norman sword due to having ancestors that moved to England from France in 1066.

The lettering although true to a type 2 Vulfbehrt seems a bit cheap, like paint in etching, but true in spelling to high carbon steel swords of the time.

The scabbard holds the blade well but every time i use it the blade is drawn having what looks like sawdust on it.

Typical Windlass issues, but for around $200 you really can't expect a top name brand that uses C and C methods and it is something I would use with no hesitation.
