Warfare changed drastically in the first World War with the new technologies that had been introduced. World War II brought with it even more advances, and thus destruction. Although the formation of the United Nations was meant to prevent such a massive conflict from arising again, wars are still fought well into the 21st century. AtlantaCutlery.com carries replica weapons that span the 20th century, from WWI trench knives and stilettos to WWII dummy guns and bayonets. Find daggers, pistols, bayonets, and swords, perfect for the collector or re-enactments. We also carry holsters, helmets, and hats spanning many decades of nations at war.
The London Blitz
On Sept 7, 1940, the first of 57 consecutive days of bombing began in London. That day, at around 4:00 PM, 348 German bombers, escorted by 617 fighters, blasted London until 6:00 PM. Two hours later, guided by the fires set by the first assault, a second group of raiders began another attack that lasted until 4:30 the following morning. By the end of that raid, German planes had dropped 337 tons of bombs on London, with 448 civilians being killed that afternoon and evening.
The German Blitzkrieg, meaning lighting war, continued in London and by November spread to other British towns. The daylight raids quickly turned into night raids, which the British had difficulty combating.
But Hitler underestimated the will and courage of the British people. The rubble from bombed cities was used to lay runways across England for the Royal Air Force. The RAF, using newly developed radar, began inflicting heavy losses on the Luftwaffe bombers. Failing to achieve air supremacy, the planned Nazi invasion of England ended in May 1941, when Hilter invaded the Soviet Union. Casualties were high during the Blitz, with 43,500 civilians being killed and 87,000 seriously injured.
The Civil War, beginning in 1861 and ending in 1865, was the bloodiest war in American history, More than 10,000 military actions took place with at least 618,000 Americans dying from battle or disease; more than the total losses from the American Revolution through the Vietnam War.
On April 9th, 1865, the war between the northern and southern United States ended with the surrender of Robert E. Lee and his troops to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse in Virginia. The official surrender was signed by General Edmund Kirby Smith on June 2nd, thus officially ending the bloodiest 4 years in American history.
155 years have passed, and Americans have achieved many accomplishments as a country.

The American Frontier is the Westward expansion that started with the English colonies in the early 17th century and ended with the last mainland territories as states in 1912. "Frontier" covers multiple frontiers but the folklore is focused primarily on the 19th century west of the Mississippi River. It covers a lot for us as well, like American frontier weapons, American frontier clothing, and rugged frontier accessories. Popular attention in the media and entertainment industry is focused on the Western US in the second half of the 19th century, a period sometimes called the Old West, or the Wild West. Not quite as wild at times as portrayed- farming, mining, lumber and other industries were prominent, but along with everyone else we are guilty of frequently exaggerating the romance and violence of the period.
We see an interesting mix of the Alamo, Zorro, the Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Gary Cooper, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Texas Rangers, Jim Bowie, cattle rustlers, gamblers, gun fighters and outlaws. The Hatfields and McCoys, Billy the Kidd, the James Gang all seem romantic now. The frontier transformed Americans and inspired our offerings. We carry tomahawks, Bowie knives, swords, frontier clothing, holsters, non-firing gun replicas, law enforcement badges, wanted posters, prison gear, accessories, spittoons, bar ware, frontier décor, statues, powder horns and so much more. The westward frontier defined America and gave us our rugged individualism and self determined drive we have today.
As the American frontier faded into history, the myths of the West in fiction and film have taken firm hold in the imagination of Americans and foreigners alike. Whether you side with the romance of it all or the wild ride often portrayed in books, TV and film, we’ve got something interesting that captures the spirit of the American Frontier. Made from authentic materials, often replicated from originals of the era we have brought the frontier back.
In this section you’ll find British Empire Knives, British Empire gun parts, British Empire accessories and home décor. Some of the items are original like flints and musket balls from the Napoleonic campaign and in excellent condition, others are reproduction items based off originals that capture the exact look, feel and function with quality workmanship and materials. The replicas are often made on the sub continent of India just as many would have been made during the East India Company time. Either way, you‘ll be proud to own a piece of the empire.
The feared Vikings took to the seas from Scandinavia in their fearsome longships for many reasons; exploration, trade and of course to raid and plunder. From this rich culture came some of history’s fiercest warriors, myths and legends. Atlanta Cutlery has an extensive selection of fine Norse replicas, from drinking horns, clothing and jewelry to weapons and Viking armor. Outfit your next great sea going adventure from our well researched and wide array of items for men and women.
