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: 1860 Light Cavalry Union Saber

I’ve purchased quite a few windlass swords over the past 30 years. Most from Atlanta Cutlery and Museum Replicas. This saber does not disappoint! Historically accurate, well fitted and strong. The saber feels good in the hand and in its sturdy metal scabbard!

Review of: 1917 Cutlass

This 1917 Navy Cutlass Is one of the finest swords I have. Being a Navy Veteran It's close to my heart. The sword is of high quality, and probably better then the originals, it has very good balance and will cut very well as it is comes very sharp. I display my 1917 cutlass right under my 1860 Navy Cutlass. They look well together. Thank You.

Review of: American Revolution Saber

This product exceeded my expectations. The polish on the blade is almost mirror smooth, and the hand guard and wooden handle are held very securely to the blade. Excellent workmanship, and devoid of frills.

Review of: American Revolution Saber

I love this Saber! You can tell they took the time to craft an amazing edged weapon! From the solid wood hilt, double fullers, to the toe of the blade arrived to me flawless! When i say solid wood hilt, i mean it. Its not two halves of a wood grip and glued together over the tang with a seam. Its a solid piece of wood, hollowed just enough to slip over the tang. There were no short cuts taken on making this edged weapon. The scabbard was also a wonderful accessory thst came paired with the saber. Its leather wrapped with a double stitch running up the length of one side of the scabbard. Steel upper and lower hooks and scabbard tip protector finish off the whole package. The shipping was very fast and the saber came to me factory oiled which was awesome! Any one that knows sabers/swords know carbon steel oxidizes, so they took the time to put a quality oil on the blade. The saber came well protected in shipping with huge bubble wrap, saber and scabbard individually wrapped in plastic and foam between them. They also took the time to put on a plastc toe guard to keep the toe of the saber safe in shipping. If theres any drawback i can think of its the fact that the blade has a little more flex than i was expecting. Not much, but it was just something i thought when examining it. Im not surprised though, beings that its such a long saber with a double fuller. Im sure the circa 1775 saber this is copied from has the same amount of flex, if not more. To conclude, this saber is gorgeous, well crafted, and museum quality. Incredible piece of craftsmanship! Thank you Atlanta Cutlery and Windlass! -Donald Reisdorf
