The sword of the medieval knight was the arming sword, although this Arming Broad Sword offers a subtle variation on that classic blade. As its name implies, this blade is a bit broader, lending it a more intimidating and powerful form.

For the times when a sword could not be carried, a knight could always depend on having his Arming Dagger with Scabbard close at hand. Like its cousin, this dagger excels in combat, featuring a shape that is designed to be versatile.
The Arming Sword with Scabbard is a replica of the sword that became the traditional weapon of the knight, before the longsword. The weapon is a single-handed sword with a broad blade designed for cutting, slashing, and thrusting.
By the 14th century, the classical view of the knights sword took shape in the arming sword. This Arming Sword with Scabbard demonstrates exactly why, as its pronounced taper and tip make this blade a quick yet devastating weapon.
