Reviews


i really like this sword. I'm torn though its light as a feather even though it is huge and very well balanced, my only complaint is that when i ordered it the fittings were loose. i wish it was a threaded pommel, that way it is easy to tighten. i do not regret this purchase however.

Euro-Spearhead

One of the world’s most ancient weapons, the spear was a dominant presence on the field of battle for an amazingly long period of time. This particular blade form was put to use during a wide range of European history by a wide range of cultures, from Ancient Celts and Greeks to well through the Renaissance. The blade is tempered steel and the socket fits a 1-1/4" round pole (not included). Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Archer's Axe

Archers always carried an in-close fighting sidearm, and an axe like this one was a perfect choice as both a good worker and a weapon. The flat poll was good for hammering in stakes that were often used in the defensive line, and then the blade could be used to sharpen them. This is a basic European pattern that was carried and used by infantry as well as mounted warriors as its design is just so practical for all kinds of uses in the field as well as war. Tempered steel head on a good hardwood shaft. Add this highly functional piece of history to your collection.
