This battle-ready reconstruction bases upon swords developed in 17th Century in London Tower, the armoury of England. A lot of weapons were stored in the tower to help England be prepared for an event of war. More precisely spoken it originates from times of the English Civil War (1642 – 1651) and primarily has been developed to be used by the cavalry, therefore fitted with a longer blade. Our construction with a shorter blade suits well for Landsknechts and Musketeers.
The hardened spring steel blade is forged through to the pommel and riveted at the end of the handle. Blade consists of two fullers as usual with this kind of swords. The sword is particularly well balanced with a weight of only 850g. The hilt consists of steel tang covered with hard wood, wrapped in genuine leather. Cross guard made from steel. The blade's point is rounded.

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.
