Medieval Tankards

Along with the goblet, the tankard was one of the common drinking vessels of the Middle Ages. Medieval tankards were probably a more common choice, if only because the addition of a handle makes the drinking vessel easier to manage and hold. At Dark Knight Armoury, we carry a wide assortment of tankards that are perfect for show and for use. A tankard is fairly typical in its form, unlike the goblet which could vary in certain aspects. Tankards virtually always have a similar shape, with size and detailing being the only two factors that vary. All of our tankards are crafted from steel, pewter, and silver, which helps to render each one safe to drink from, while also ensuring that each one can also feature stunning decoration, and many of them do. Pewter is also advantageous because it is easy to take care of, requiring only a bit of metal polish to ensure that pewter retains a brilliant shine. Some of our tankards have a definitive gothic style, featuring skull emblems and gothic designs that make them perfect for dark nobles and vampires to drink from. Others are more definitively medieval in their look, possessing impressive engravings and carvings, as well as decorative handles that take the shapes of various beasts, including dragons, lions, and more. And of course, Viking tankards are a must-have staple, featuring figures from Norse mythology, as well as bone handles, serpentine themes and knot designs. Many of our tankards are exceptional not only for their design, but also for their price, which makes it so much easier to pick up a personal drinking vessel that suits your personal style and taste. Best of all, we also carry tankard straps that allow you carry your tankard with ease, so you never have to go to any fair without it! Medieval tankards are perfect for any occasion, whether you are casually drinking among friends or celebrating a momentous event, like weddings, knightings, births, or more! Just think, one small trip to browse through Dark Knight Armourys medieval tankards section, and soon, you could be enjoying a quality beverage in the comforts of your own home from a delightful and stylish looking tankard that appeals to your sense of style.
