This is a very good copy of an M40 German helmet, the weight is accurate to within 2% for a helmet of its size when compared to an original. The liner is also accurately recreated with soft leather – it even has a Berlin manufacturer’s stamp on the inside and a Reich’s Bureau number on the chinstrap. You will be impressed – For attention to detail and materials, these are far superior to Made in China M40 copies. Helmets of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) were factory painted a medium to dark 'blue grey' colour. German Army (Heer), Navy (Kriegsmarine), and Waffen-SS (Armed-SS) helmets generally bore various shades of medium to dark field green. The Afrika Korp wore yellowish-brown helmets. On the eastern front, in winter, helmets were invariably over-painted white – in some circumstances some were factory-finished in that colour. Certain units of the SS wore black helmets. German Naval (Kriegsmarine) helmets were, on occasion, painted a 'battleship grey' colour. A number of factories in the Reich produced helmets under contract, this fragmented supply arrangement unintentionally added to shade variations, as different suppliers used slightly different paints and mixtures. The paint finish on this helmet is based on an original shade, nevertheless, German helmets were painted in a huge range of shades. Although we may imagine that the highly efficient German armed forces produced strictly standardized equipment, in the case of helmets, it’s rare for two original German helmets to bear the same colour when compared Read more

This sword was favoured by the Swiss Landsknechte in the Renaissance. Katzbalger means "cat skinner". It's not truly known why it was given this name -"katzbalger" is German slang for a brawler, so it may have been known as a "brawling sword". Some sources say that it was so agile and sharp, you could have skinned a cat with it -hence the name. Whatever the truth, it was a sturdy, wide-bladed and most devastating sword that technically transcended its late medieval forebears. Fitted with the distinctive "figure 8" pattern guard, the overall feeling of the Katzbalger is one of overwhelming utility. This faithful and functional replica is a very solidly constructed piece that's meant for dirty business. If the user desires a sword which will fit into a variety of time periods or if you're looking for that "one and only" type of sword, the Katzbalger may not be it. On the other hand, if you desire a sword of this specific type with which to round out a collection or complete a persona look no further. Measurements and Specifications: Weight: 1.909 kg Overall length: 99.5 cm Blade length: 76cm Blade width: 5.6cm at base and tapering Grip length: 23cm (incl. pommel) Guard width: 28.5 cm Point of Balance: 13cm from guard Center of Percussion: ~21 inches from guard Sharp Full tang Leather-clad scabbard -0-CAUTION – THIS IS A FULLY FUNCTIONAL MARTIAL WEAPON – DECOMISSION THE BLADE BEFORE WALL MOUNTING. DO NOT USE FOR SPARRING. DO NOT USE FOR THEATRICAL OR RE-ENACTMENT PURPOSES. CHECK THE LAWS IN YOUR STATE OR COUNTRY PERTAINING Read more

"Why wear a sword in a supposedly modern war dominated by firepower? Although there are undoubtedly undertones of a distant chivalric age connected with such a potentially brutal implement, it is not primarily a weapon, rather it is above all else, an insignia of rank – a sign of authority bestowed upon the officer by the State. As such, it is important to remember that the sword is part of an officer’s uniform and should be treated as an object of respect by the rank and file, but more importantly, by the individual wearing it." This beautiful reproduction of a Confederate Non-Commissioned Officer's Sword has a 30 1/2-inch tempered steel blade and a leather scabbard with polished brass fittings. The hand guard is marked "CSA" to designate the Confederate States Army. The blade is made of tempered carbon steel and is.200 inches (5.1 mm) thick and.96 inch (24 mm) wide. This sword measures 37 inches (94 cm) overall and weighs 2 pounds 4 ounces (1.0 kg). The genuine leather and brass scabbard weighs 8.2 ounces (232 grams). The Confederate NCO sword has a solid brass grip and guard with the letters "CSA" cast on the outer guard. This is the Confederate version of the US 1860 Non-Commissioned Officer's Sword. The major difference between the two was that the Confederate model has "CSA" cast into the handle. This sword is similar to the 1860 Musician's sword, except that this model has a full hilt guard, while the Musician's sword had a 1/2 hilt guard. As with several weapons and accoutrements, the Read more

Leaf-Blade Renaissance Dagger High Quality Leather Scabbard Overall Length: 44.5cm Blade Length: 31cm Blade Width: 4.8 cm (at widest point) EN 45 Steel Full Tang 0.72 Kg Sharp The leaf-shaped blade was common in the Classical era -mainly amongst the Greeks and Celts. Although this blade form produces a powerful chop, when set against plate armour or mail, a narrower more-tapered blade was found to be more effective when thrust. Ancient shortcomings in metallurgy (producing iron rather than steel) also influenced the design -with shorter and wider blades being less prone to bending out of shape. In the Renaissance, Ancient Greek philosophy and art was once more held in high esteem. As a result, arms and armour began to reflect the Classical era too (to a degree). In this new intellectual climate where Alle romana et alla antica ("in the manner of the Romans and the ancients") was the new way forward, the leaf-blade would put in a new appearance, albeit to a limited extent. Yes, these Classically influenced blades were fashion statements brandished by the moneyed classes and were never seriously reintroduced to the European battlefield -but they were fully functional weapons, that caused wide stabbing wounds and powerful cuts -as many a 16th century transgressor or ruffian found out to his cost.
