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 daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
