Battle-ready Weapons, Series BATTLECRY

Battle-ready Weapons, Series BATTLECRY The Battlecry series of historical swords, daggers and axes was developed in collaboration with John Clements. His knowledge of historical swordsmanship and martial arts in the Middle Ages and Renaissance is unsurpassed!

The blades are hand forged from the 1065 high carbon steel in the workshops of Wind Steelcrafts®. The blades are oil-quenched and tempered in computer controlled ovens to a hardness slightly over 50HRC Rockwell. This ensures optimum strength, resiliency and elasticity of the blades and a high resistance to the razor-sharp cutting. The swords have extra wide full tangs.The low weight of the swords is achieved thanks to the extra wide fullers.

Each weapon has to complete several rigorous physical tests and checks during the manufacturing process in order to guarantee the high quality exceeding the industry standard.  The blade is stamped by master blacksmith after the last inspection. These full-battle-ready weapons have black stonewashed finish. Each weapon is enclosed a certificate that is signed by the craftsman who worked on the respective blade.

Attention - Danger of serious injury!

Since these are literally lethal weapons with razor sharp cutting edges, they are supplied with a matching sheath (or even with a sword frog). These weapons are sold to adults only. Please email us always a proof of age such as ID card or your driving license. Please keep these weapons out of reach of children!

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
