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.

Fantasy Swords

Fantasy swords and fantasy weapons are your standard weapons taken up a notch. So much so, many are considered works of art or metal sculpture. Pop culture has helped greatly fuel these amazing pieces. Inspiration is taken from the works of JRR Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Brent Weeks, RR Martin, Frank Frazetta, Edgar Rice Burroughs and more contemporary designers like Kit Rae and our own design team. The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, Highlander, Last Samurai, Walking Dead and so many others feature fantasy versions of swords which have inspired so many artists. Myth and legend have their place also with the likes of Excalibur, Kusanagi, Wonder Woman, Robin Hood, Princess Bride Inigo and the Dread Pirate Roberts, Durandal, Three Musketeers, Don Quiote, Chronicles of Narnia, John Carter of Mars, and Kingdom of Heaven. 

They start in reality and quickly become a work of art in the right hands. Our fantasy swords call on elves, orcs, ogres, dragons plus great warriors, mythical kings to capture the fierce, passionate nature of these beings.

Collecting these spectacular swords has grown over the years and if you want sci-fi, legendary, horror, or even gothic swords Atlanta Cutlery (ACC) is your source. We sell many different brands of fantasy swords, ranging from makers such as Kit Rae, United CutleryMaster Cutlery, JALIC and Windlass Steelcrafts.

We feature items from Assassin’s Creed, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Hobbit, Conan, Death Dealer, The Vikings, 47 Ronin, King Arthur and his knights of the round table and others. Often made from high grade stainless steel or high carbon steel with metal fittings and leather and wood accents, they employ many of the same materials as their historical counterparts. They are in many cases not only beautiful, but fully functional works of art.

Sword Canes

What is better than a simple walking cane? Canes with swords! Sword canes have been used throughout history and are often featured in TV and movies by villains and heroes alike. Dr. Watson carries one in the latest incarnation of Sherlock Holmes to hit the screens. Batman Begins features one. Even frontier gamblers and many others carried these tools discretely. Although laws vary and may make them tough to carry they are still wonderful curiosities to own.

The sword cane or stick as it was first known was a popular fashion accessory for the wealthy during the 18th and 19th centuries. They varied in size of blade and decoration from short stabbing blades to rapier size swords. However during this period, it was becoming unacceptable in social settings to openly carry a sword, even though there were still aristocrats routinely trained in the gentlemanly art of swordsmanship and dueling who wished to go armed for self-defense. Rarer were swords concealed in ladies' walking sticks and parasols, as it was even less socially acceptable for a lady to carry a sword, or gasp, publicly admit that she knew how to use one!

Soon after their introduction, other items found their way into canes and became popular. Instead of a blade, these could hold telescopes, compasses, flasks known as tippling sticks for alcohol and even lock pick sets. There were even some with guns which proved impractical.

Today’s sword canes are elegant, functional and can save your life if need be. There is a confidence that comes from having a good blade at your side and we have many to choose from. From Victorian era London and Jules Verne to modern day designs and materials like high carbon steel and aluminum you’ll find that perfect accent to your historical outfit or daily carry.

Modernized take on a classic.  Well balanced with perfect heft.  Would have preferred a razor edge but comes sharpened and easily remedied.  An unbelievable price for such quality.  A must have for both the avid collector and casual aficionado.

Review of: Honshu Boshin Wakizashi

This is identical but shorter than the longer katana and both are great swords.  I'm an edge perfectionist and normally put a better edge on anything I buy but both of these I felt no need to improve the edge and that is really rare for me.  For the metal used, the edge, and the feel... this is worth more than twice the price... LOVE IT!!!!

Review of: Honshu Boshin Katana

I'm an edge perfectionist and normally can put a better edge on anything.  I buy a lot of edged weapons/machetes and this sword I feel no need to make the edge better which really surprises me.  This feels great in the hand and I've paid more than double this price for swords that needed work and don't equal this model.  LOVE IT!!!!

Review of: Heavy Cavalry Saber

Large slashing Dragoon Saber which replaced the earlier smaller thrusting Dragoon Saber.  Very high quality piece.  Now, since I own both, I can portray both time periods of a pre-Civil War, 1st Regiment Dragoon Trooper west of the Mississippi.  I was lucky enough examine an original of Civil War vintage, which was found in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in the early 20th century by my Father-in-law.

Review of: Knob Sword Cane

I have several sword canes, some bought new, some used...this one is much more than I expected for the price. It has heft and a solid feel when blade is locked in, and could be used for defence as is, without presenting the blade. The blade is as advertised with no edge but with sharp tip. With a little sharpening work it could become an attackers worst nightmare. I plan to purchase other items from this company based on quality, ease of ordering and fast delivery. On line business doesn't get any better than this company.
