Short Swords & Cutlasses

Short swords have seen usage throughout history, from the Legionnaires to Renaissance squires and pirates. In ancient armies, short swords and large shields were a standard armament of the soldiers who fought against the long sarissa pikes of phalanxes. Limitations of copper, bronze, and iron regulated blade length at first. Later, the swords developed across many cultures leading to different types and shapes. After steel had become a common metal used to make bladed weapons, short swords stayed in use as with the Roman gladius which was an effective stabbing weapon. 

Museum Replicas offers a range of short swords. The classics are all covered. For instance, we have the most famous of all short swords – the Roman Gladius. In fact, there are different types of gladius in the selection. Also, there are two other iconic swords of the pre-Roman period – the Greek Hoplite Sword and the Iberian Falcata. Don’t forget to check out the cutlasses which covering the Renaissance and the American Civil War. These include pirate, English, Scottish, and Civil War naval cutlasses. High carbon steel has been used for most of the blades in the selection, making our short swords robust and able to maintain a good edge.
