Military Swords

While modern fighting often makes use of advanced weaponry and ballistics, armed forces spent several hundred years wielding blades of various types in battle as their primary weapons. The Military Swords department here at Dark Knight Armoury includes a range of decorative and functional military sabers and swords modeled mainly on those used by militaries around the world up through the 1800s. Our officers swords and NCO sabers often feature ornate etching and decorative elements, while other cavalry sabers and infantry swords possess a more clean-cut look. Many of these pieces work well for military re-enactments, providing the ideal touch of realism to your attire. Whether you are looking for an American Revolution sword, a German battle saber, or a Russian officer shashka, you can find the ideal blade here!
