About us

- TEMPLAR SWORD:

The Templar Order was established in 1118 to ensure the custody of the Holy places and to protect the pilgrimage routes. The order reached its maximun splendor on the XIII century.

The knights Templar considered themselves as knights of God, honour of the church and of chrisianity. Their lema was "NON NOBIS,DOMINE,NON NOBIS, SED TUO NOMINI DA GLORIAM" (Give Glory, Not for us, God, not for us, but for your name).

The Templars fought along side King Richard I (Richard The Lion Hearted) and other Crusaders in the battles for the Holy Lands. It was a very well organized military force and they were the clash forces in all the Crusades.

They were in the vanguard during the attack and in the rearguard during the retreat.


- Celtic Combat Sword:

Dating back as early as 500 B.C., The Celtic peoples were one of the most brave, inspiring and exciting fighters in History, displaying great strength and fury. Their choice weapon in battle was a sword designed for close combat with it's flared leaf shaped blade featuring strong and deadly sharp edges. The two sharp edges made these swords good for slashing at the enemy, especially if the warrior was riding on a chariot. Such a design could be wielded quickly and with great power.

In respect of the Celts tradition and worship of the celestial heavens, this Celtic sword offers a solid brass hand poured crescent moon guard and pommel . Each 2.25"W x 19"L flared blade is hand forged of high carbon steel which replicates the materials as close as possible to the period.

This truly inspiring sword comes to us from the age of heroes. The anthropomorphic hilt and leaf shaped blade are similar to the swords that would have been used by Gaelic heroes like Cuchulain or Conn of the Hundred Battles.

The Celtic Combat sword has an overall length of 26.5" and possesses all the attributes required by the true Celtic warrior.


- SPANISH RAPIER & TOLEDAN RAPIER:

Swept Hilt Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman's education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements.

The decline of armor and the rise of the musket was simultaneous, and some would say a necessary precursor, for the rise of the rapier. The rapier depended almost entirely on the thrust for use, and would have been useless against an armored opponent. The almost wholesale abandonment of armor allowed for the rise of a sword devoted to thrusting. The rapier, although carried as a secondary weapon by almost all soldiery, was almost never used as a primary weapon throughout this period.

Blades generally originated in Toledo but were hilted by regional smiths, resulting in many different hilt styles and finishes.


- COLADA DEL CID (ref.: 2010)

According to legend, Diáz de Vivar (El Cid) fought for Alfonso against the Moors, fought for the Moors against Alfonso, and conquered the Kingdom of Valencia for himself; he ruled there until his death in 1099.

Even his title, El Cid Campeador, reflects his conflicting loyalities: "El Cid" is a Moorish title of respect, from Arabic al sayyid "Lord"; "Campeador" is Spanish for "Champion". To this day, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar is known as a hero of Christian Spain. El Cid was also a great war hero due to his excellent acheivements in the the Reconquest of Spain . El Cid was a superior and extremely successful soldier of fortune who apparently never lost a battle.
