The Man at Arms was a warrior, pure and simple. A stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was a capable and competent warrior who was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. Although he was not a Knight, he fought and trained alongside them as a brother in arms.
To honor these rugged, reliable, salt-of-the-earth warriors we have created a range of true journeyman’s weapons that we have called the Man at Arms Collection.
These practical and battle ready swords lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of our other swords, but they pack a resounding punch where it counts!
Approximating the quality and performance of our high end swords, the Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of our finest high performance blades but at a markedly reduced price.
Their fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that compliments their black leather handles, and when well-oiled they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.
If you always wanted a Cold Steel sword, but couldn’t afford one, the Man at Arms collection is for you.

Messer (German for "knife," also groses Messer "great knife," Hiebmesser "hewing knife," Kriegsmesser "war knife," etc.) during the German Late Middle Ages and Renaissance (14th to 16th centuries) was a term for the class of single-edged bladed weapons, deriving from the medieval falchion and preceding the modern sabre.
