Medieval Swords

Medieval Swords

The sword is the classic and most well-known of the Medieval weapons. Knights, soldiers, nobility and the wealthy aristocrats of society had at least one sword at their disposal. The swords of the early Medieval period often weighed around 2.5 pounds and had a blade that measured 30 inches. These early swords could be used with one hand and were often accompanied by a shield in which the soldier or knight would hold in his other hand. These Medieval weapons took on the name “Viking swords” from the sword blade shape and type it evolved from. From the 9th century A.D. through the 1300s, these types of swords were the most common.


In the second half of the Medieval period, a much heavier and longer, “long sword” became the Medieval weapon of choice. This “long sword” required two hands to maneuver and control and was more effective in penetrating the hard, advanced armour of enemy fighters.


While the “long sword” became the new, popular type of sword, many knights and soldiers carried both the “long sword” and “Viking sword” with them into battle. The “Viking sword” became known as a “sidearm sword” and was still used in battle as a nimbler complement to the “long sword.”


Whether you’re depicting a knight in a play or movie or if you’re a Medieval soldier re-enactor looking for an authentic, historically accurate sword, look no further than Historical Reproductions. We have both “long swords” and “Viking swords” made and produced by the highly recognized brand Get Ready for Battle.


Each sword has been meticulously made from period materials using models and dimensions researched from the Medieval period.
