Knives, historical replicas

Are you interested in history and everyday life of people in ancient times? A knife was (and still is) the most commonly used tool for everyday use. People used it already in prehistoric times; even today they cannot do without it. Are you looking for a knife that was used by people in the Middle Ages? Just have a look in this category! We offer replicas of utility knives, medieval knives, medieval eating knives or combat and hunting knives here.

A common knife consists of an elongated steel blade that is connected to a handle. A knife can be used for cutting and slicing. Combat knives are also used for stabbing.

The first knives were already made during the Old Stone Age. Originally made of rock, bone, flint, and obsidian, knives have evolved in construction as technology has, with blades being made from bronze, copper, iron, steel, ceramics, and titanium. Many cultures have their unique version of the knife..

The knives were used not only for preparing meals, dining, hunting or as a carving tool; but also for fighting. The combat knives are classified as bladed weapons. They were used as backup weapons for hand-to-hand combats. Even today, every foot soldier has a backup combat knife.

You will find in this category medieval knives with very authentic look, which was achieved by use of traditional methods and technologies. Today, they can be sold in the EU only as decorative items as they do not comply the sanitary condition for contact with food!

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Do you make custom-sized chain mail armor?

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
