During 2019 we purchsed a number of Lord of Battles weapons and stress-tested then in-house for both foot and mounted combat training. They withstood the tests well so we are rapidly building up our range and available stock of swords, daggers. axes, spear heads, archery components and direct impact weapons.
We have since added many different types of weapons to our range and we are now one of the the biggest suppliers of re-enactment weapons in New Zealand.
I have been using a couple of the swords and a number of other weappns since 2019 for HEMA and mounted combat without any problems or issues.
The swords, axes and most of our other weapons are made from EN45 High Carbon Steel tempered to a Rockwell harness of 52 - 55. EN45 is a silico-mangnese spring steel widely used in the manfacture of vehicle leaf srpings and knives. The majority of modern re-enactment swords and other weapons are made from this material and tempered to the same hardness.
We reserve the right to not sell any of our weapons if we feel that they run the risk of being misused.
