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.

Review of: American Revolution Saber

This sword is great! It is functional but also looks good mounted on the wall. Get it sharpened for sure. Very well balanced and aesthetically pleasing. Highly recommended.

Review of: Damascus Short Sword

absolutely gorgeous! first, a big thanks to the fulfillment and shipping crew: I only used standard shipping and received this item in 2 days! what an amazing bonus! the bone/wood handle is beautiful and the grip feels very natural. the blade arrived with the standard factory edge - just enough to make you wanna sharpen it a little more on your own. the included scabbard is a nice variation from the standard issue and with a few tweaks has transformed for over-the-shoulder carry. great piece, great price.

Review of: Patton Sword

Fabulous.  I own an original, and this is identical to how it would have looked when it was new (no scratches or dents).  Blade is perfect, shield is excellent, and the grip is authoritative and properly grippy.  Could do with a leather spacer (it comes with a plastic one), but you can find one or make one yourself for a few dollars if it's important to you.

This is the sword that George Patton insisted upon, and which our cavalry would have carried with them to France.

Review of: Windlass Cobra Steel Kopis

From my experience this sword is not light and definitely not dainty. This sword could easily hack up some wood i had lying around and a stab pierced all the way through a watermelon pretty easily. Not to mention this short sword weighs 1.6 pounds. overall i have had a good experience although the blade did come caked in grease.

Review of: Confederate Cavalry Officer's Saber

After reading the four previous reviews, I expected a nice saber.  What I received exceeded my expectations.  This is an extremely nice saber.  It is solid, well-made, and looks great, and all at a very fair price. The manufacturer, Windlass, did a fine job.  No wonder they have such a good reputation.  The saber arrived covered in protective grease and was very well-packaged.  I had to wait a month for its arrival but it was worth every second. I could not be more pleased.
