Historical Swords

A historical sword was a symbol of bravery and prestige. Not just anyone could have one. They were earned and with them came respect. Swords literally carved out kingdoms throughout history. Tough, functional, and effective in hand-to-hand combat, they were the choice of royalty, knights, men-at-arms, and peasants alike.

Many use the term “battle-ready swords,” but what does that mean exactly? Essentially, they are hand-forged, fully functional blades made of high-carbon steel that can perform like the originals. Unlike stainless steel, this can be too brittle to handle a true battle situation. Historical swords can be used in training and live reenactments. Use common sense though, if bashing edge-to-edge. Use the right tool – a theatrical blade with rounded edges and tip. Historical swords are the kind of blades used in medieval and Renaissance fairs, Civil War reenactments and shows for fencing and simulated battles. High-carbon spring steel is generally the strongest material used in blade making and we feature 1065-1095 on our site. It is the steel of choice for battle-ready swords, which can then be hand forged and tempered. We offer a good selection of historically accurate functional blades from the US Revolutionary War and Civil War to more current military offerings. To hold a functional full-tang blade is to come face to face with history. They look like the originals, were made like them, and flex and balance like their historic counterparts.

Products featured on Atlanta Cutlery and its sister website Museum Replicas include historical swords from the ancient Greek, Rome, Viking, Medieval and the Renaissance periods up to the American Civil War. Fancy yourself a Musketeer or knight errant? How about a Spanish conquistador or marauding Viking? Maybe a Roman Centurion? One hand, two hand, bastards, rapiers, and cut-and-thrust were all choices men made when conflict loomed. You’ll find what you need for your persona, collection, or reenactment. Made from originals when possible, we’ve captured the little details for authenticity and maybe, more importantly, the function these blades were meant for.
