Arming Swords

A type of cruciform sword with a double-edged blade, arming swords remained in use between the 11th and 16th centuries. Similar to knightly swords or knights swords, arming swords were the standard weapon of the medieval knight in Europe. Typically used with a shield, the traditional arming sword eventually gave way to the popularity of the longsword, becoming a sidearm that developed over time into Renaissance cut and thrust swords. Here at Buying a Sword, we carry an excellent selection of these medieval swords, including both functional arming swords and decorative arming swords.
