Decorative Swords

There are swords for every purpose under the sun. Some are meant for slashing, others for thrusting. Some are meant for war, others for peace. And some are meant for combat, while others are meant for display. At Dark Knight Armoury, we carry many swords, and every single one you find here in our Decorative Swords section is meant to be a great display piece. And because swords were so varied, we carry a wide assortment of different styles, ensuring that no matter what kind of display sword or decorative sword you are looking for, you can likely find it here. Because all of these swords are crafted in way that makes them unfit for battle, they are considered decorative. That means that these swords are perfect for collecting and display and that while you can wear them, carry them, and even swing them, they are not meant to hold up to the stress that a weapon experiences in actual use, whether in training, mock-battles, sparring, or actual battle of any sort. it is just as well, though, because some of these swords feature a level of decoration that would only get ruined by excessive use in battle. We offer Scottish claymores for those who want something heavy, long, and deadly, while also offering a number of Roman gladius swords for those who follow the Roman methodology. Viking swords are a close amalgam to typical medieval swords, with a bit more simplicity for those who want that true Viking look, while knightly swords are a perfect choice for those who believe that chivalry and knightly vows are still alive and well, even to this day. Swords from all manner of fantasy exist here too, ranging from the Excalibur of myth and legend to other blades of fantasy and fiction, from movies and films and more. It could take hours to list all that can be found here in the decorative swords section at Dark Knight Armoury. In those hours spent reading, you could, instead, spend them actually browsing through these swords, to see for yourself we have.
