One Sword at a Time -- Your Sword
Every sword model that we make is a limited edition, a unique collector's item. We concentrate on four basic concepts -- faithful recreation of specific originals and original sword types, quality materials and manufacturing, full functionality, and top-level customer service.

Each piece is made by hand, one sword at a time, by a group of the most talented blademakers and cutlers in the world.

Our swords are entirely made in America of the highest quality materials -- but with a distinctly European flair -- starting with painstaking research of period originals and exacting design work by noted Swedish swordsmith, author and researcher, Peter Johnsson. No detail is too small to replicate faithfully.

Our development process is just as exacting -- taking the time required to get it right and the willingness to make and remake our prototypes until each piece is exact.

Each sword is hand-made to order with time-proven traditional construction and no shortcuts or compromises, with the time and attention of a master craftsman. And even though swords are no longer used as weapons, we still make each sword as though your life depended upon it.

Take a look at our series of articles on how our swords are made and judge for yourself. You can buy with confidence, because every sword we make is guaranteed for life against defects in materials and workmanship.

We don't rely solely on a shopping cart, because we like to talk to our customers and we want to be sure that if you ever have a question or an issue with our product or service, you will have a real person to talk to about it.

Our commitment to you is one of excellence and personal attention -- from research and design, craftsmanship, and customer service, to delivery of the finished sword -- one sword at a time.
