Unparalleled Knowledge and Experience

Arms & Armor is dedicated to quality and authenticity. Our craftspeople create our full range of historically accurate European weapons by hand in our shop. For over four decades we have worked with museums, collectors, and scholars to develop a deep understanding of European weapons; knowledge we use to make products that exemplify the finest qualities of the very best historic pieces. When we select historic items to reproduce, being pretty isn't enough, they have to move with grace and beauty, and beg to be used when in the hand. These are pieces that feel as good as they look, and that work as well as they feel. Our mission is to craft items that recreate the look, feel, and function of the best historic originals. Whether you are a Collector, Curator, Reenactor, or Historical Martial Artist, we will work with you to create the sword or other weapon of your dreams.

The ordering process

At the current time our in-stock items ship quickly as possible after purchase. Production axes, polearms and impact weapons are on the way usually 4 to 10 weeks. Swords are running about 8 to 12 months. Rapiers are approximately 18 months for finishing. Custom projects vary due to the complexity of the project and time available. We encourage you to call or send an email prior to ordering if you have questions.
