Battlecry – for the warrior within you


Forged in the heat of the battle, the Battlecry collection from Windlass Steelcrafts has been designed in conjunction with John Clements, who specializes in historical fencing and Medieval and Renaissance fighting methods. Made from the toughest materials, (1065 high carbon steel), this series consists of an exciting selection of medieval swords, daggers and axes, with a darkened, battle hardened finish. Sharpened to a fighting finish and tempered for ultimate resiliency, these unique weapons are manufactured “hands-on” by master smiths. Every piece includes custom packaging, and a signed Certificate of Authenticity (by each smith who touched the blade in the forging process) with a matching scabbard and frog.


The 21-1/2 inches long Maldon Viking SEAX, is one of its celebrated showpiece and was known to have been used as side arm of free Norse men of the 10th Century. If you’re looking for a weapon that doubles up as a working knife and a combat dagger, this is the one for you! These masterpieces are hand-crafted with tough 1065 high carbon steel and weigh around 1 lb / 4 oz . The blade shape features a thick back edge that uniquely curves down toward a straight point providing the Sax with slashing potential as well as chopping force.

  
However, if you’re a professional swordsmen or a sword enthusiast, then the prized Bosworth Long sword is the rare treasure in the casket. Of all the swords that came from the Mediaeval and Renaissance era, there was no sword as versatile and formidable as the double handed, double bladed, Long sword. The Long war sword offers a greater variety of grip and holding than any other sword, which makes it unique. It slices effortlessly without much strength which is what all great swords do. 


The Orleans Battle axe: The formidable Orleans Battle axe packs brute strength and power into its 3 lbs body, making it worthy of the epic warriors who once used them courageously in the battlefield. You can almost hear the blood curling cry from the past as these brave warriors tore into the heart of the battle armed with raging passion, focus and the black iron axe.


For those who secretly harbor a Viking complex, Battlecry presents the Maldon Viking sword. Fortify yourself with a Maldon Sword to play the part with a natural full-blooded passion of a Viking. This 36-1/2 inches long and 2 lbs / 6 oz heavy sword is a trademark Viking warrior accessory. These swords are created by experienced smiths to the exact specifications of the original.


Agincourt war sword: Here’s the war perfect sword if you’re ever planning to re-enact the Battle of Agincourt. A dangerous fighting blade of respected martial utility, this 39 inches long slender, light and quick war sword with stonewashed black finish gives you just the right kind of look to enact your piece of drama. It becomes even more dangerous when paired with a buckler or a larger shield. 


Crecy War Dagger: This is a tough and fitting addition to any of the Battle Cry swords.  The Crecy is a hard nosed, no nonsense double edge dagger for the fighting man (or woman). Slender, light and quick, well-suited to facing armored or unarmored adversaries. This is an agile weapon whose length and weight make it highly effective alone or paired with another weapon.  Combining versatility with utility, with a 1065 high carbon steel blued patina, it’s well protected from the frequent rust spots and stains that occur so often from everyday practice and exposure to the elements. The battle-hardened finish has a full, peened over tang and is tempered to a low 50's RC. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this unique. Includes a matching scabbard, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process. One could easily envision English long-bowmen and knights alike carrying this blackened blade.
