The Darksword Armory Alexandria Sword is our recreation of one of the most famous swords of the 15th century. An Oakeshott Type XVIIIc, this style of sword was heavily influenced by the armor of the day and had a wide-based blade tapering to a thin point.
Through the course of human history, commonplace objects have been pressed into service as weapons. The Medieval Axes are no exception. Battle axes were common in Europe during the migration period, the subsequent Viking Age and during the better part of the middle ages.
This Viking axe sits at the balance point between form and function. While reputed as a fierce weapon, the Viking axe was, at times, decorated with intricate, artistic designs and carefully created knot work.
