www.mwart.com

the link stands for medieval weapon art :)

The site has swords, shields, armor, period costume equipment and so much stuff I wish I could get... however I only have so much money... :cry: .

Bummer... everything is so expensive these days :? .

Well though you might want pull up a chair and bucket and start drooling with me. :D

I go there from time to time, the stuff is nice, but cheaply made. All those are mass produced and have little accuracy to historical weapons (in material and design) and are not really made for combat.

Also they only sell armor that is built for a certain size, I would never buy their armor.

If I were you I'd seek a modern blacksmith or swordsmith, or a reliable company that makes these items. You could always check ebay, too.

Also be sure to look at your state's policy in regard to these weapons. For example sword canes are illegal in Massachussets.

Well, you can't really go around carrying a sword cane anywhere. That 67" Odachi is pretty sweet though.

That's the whole point. You let your attacker's think your a kind old gentlemen, when they get close, hit the button and thrust.

Wow, most of the weaponry on the site looks very nice. I may have to pay a visit again in the future. Does anyone know if any of the blades are of good quality? The knives perhaps?

As I said earlier, these "weapons" are mass produced, probably cast in molds and dozens churned out daily. These weapons were not hammered out by a smith, and thus are not as quality. If you want a fake/fantasy sword for show get these, they are cheap. If your looking for a historical showpiece or an actual weapon to fight with, look elsewhere.

Thanks for letting us know. The photos on the website make them look spectacular, and for those of us who live overseas (Australia) we can only go by what we see in th photos. So thank you.

There is a really good company in the UK who make arms and armour using a swordsmith, but I can not remember their name. I will look for the name, once I find it, I will post a link.

You need to check out a place with REAL swords:

www.angelsword.com

This one is mine:

Mwart and MRL aren't bad for replicas and decoration/costuming though, but I wouldn't ever do anything with them (target cutting, sparing, etc)

Well, do it at home. I'm sure you can wait a few hours. That's what I do, even if computer lessons in Physics bores me to death :P
