Black Friday 2022

We have a couple of one of items at a special price today. Plus we just finished some Nordland Axe so they are in stock and ready to ship right now!

The one of items are two swords. Both of which we have featured in past blog posts.

The first is the Italian single handed sword we called a Venetian Pirata Sword.

This bold sword is done in steel with black leather grip.

The second sword is a messer based on the images in Talhoffer's manual.

Both of these cool swords are at a special price and there is only one each. Hope everyone had a great holiday so far and be well.
