The elite Kingdom of Arms line of medieval swords, medieval and Viking daggers and knives are exclusively handmade at our foundry in the Philippines. These are battle ready swords and daggers. Each full tang blade is hand forged from virgin 5160 carbon steel, each hand hammered as the originals, finished to 3/16" thick, unless noted on that item, as the originals. Heat treated, then tempered correctly to give stiffness and flexibility to the blade. Each sword, dagger and knife is full tang. Fully functional as the originals, or Battle Ready as some would say. The steel used in the fittings (i.e. the pommels and guards) is made from quality low carbon steel that lowers the possibility of rust from handling. Some are still antiqued to further help in the prevention. The leather wrapping on the grips and scabbards, or sheaths is not pig skin as with most from the Philippines. We use a quality leather as you can see.
Watch the Video Bruce Brookhart made cutting with the New Crusader Sword. We do not condone this abuse with any sword, but it shows what our swords are capable of.
We have also upped our game with the scabbards and sheaths. They are wood with leather and or brass and steel accents. We believe a quality blade deserves a quality scabbard. It is like the paint job on a car!
