A New Mystery Weapon Takes Form...

A new product is being formed deep in the depths of Arms and Armor. Its makers pour all of their knowledge and skill into it, imbuing its steel with legendary qualities of the past. What ultimate form will it take? What devastating might will be unleashed upon the world? All will be revealed in the coming weeks as the first in a series of new products is unveiled...

As always, all of our products are hand made, by us, in our shop in Minneapolis, MN. For over 40 years Arms and Armor has been making top quality, historically accurate replicas of medieval and Renaissance weapons. Swords are made of 6150 carbon steel hardened and tempered to 50-52 Rockwell. Our goal is always to produce pieces that look, feel, and function just like the historical originals on which they are based.
