Swords and other Cold Weapons
Weapons are certainly as old as mankind itself
At present, it is, however, impossible to say with certainty if man used his first weapon for defence, hunting or against another man. We know for sure only that weapons have accompanied man for centuries and that like man they have undergone their own development. They reflect man's craftsmanship and they represent a sumptuous ornament of many collections.
We focus on a period when cold weapons prevailed.
What are cold weapons?
I have found a very beautiful definition of cold weapons in a book by Petr Klučina (Zbroj a zbraně (Armour and Weapons)): "Cold weapons are combat equipment which is controlled directly by the muscular strength of its bearer."
You can read in detail about the development of cold weapons and warfare in professional literature, which we also use profusely as a source of information.
We produce replicas of cold weapons from ancient history through the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.
Our cold weapons are made of non-metallic materials, primarily of plywood and wood. The surface of our weapons is coated with a combination of paints which imitate a metallic appearance.
You can buy a wooden sword in many places and you can also make it by yourselves. We, however, offer you wooden swords of a historically faithful appearance. Our wooden swords are made of strong and light beech plywood which does not break into long splinters. We also produce scabbards and half-scabbards for our swords.
