Thanks for the "sticky" thread! :D

Briefly....

We have 2 Main sides to our business:

1) The Retail/Wholesale Side

We aim to provide the best service possible and still maintain a living :D

We will Price Match/Beat any U.K. Price on our range of products and will do our best to beat any International Prices (please bear in mind VAT, Import Tax and Carraige costs have to be allowed for when price matching internationally).

Bulk Orders will attract a healthy discount so if a few people in your group are after kit. Place the order together and we'll see what we can do. At the very leasst you will save on postage!

2) The Manufacturing Side

We are investing more and more in our own range of products. HEMA specific kit is one of our target areas. Our range is manufactured here in the U.K. and our partners in India.

If there are any products you would like to see on the market or if you have a design that you would like to produce it is well worth contacting us.

2009 should see the advent of:

The new affordable Nylon Waster and Feder Range.

The Plastic Bucklet for use with the above.

A Prototype Affordable Sparring Helmet


We happily sponsor events like FightCamp and The International Open Championships. If you would like sponsorship please contact us and we'll see what we can do.

We have our own 25 x 13 metre fully equipped Fight School here in Conwy which is available for events. VERY cheap rates :D

Please PM me if you would like further information about anything...

I have a fair few things from Knights Shop and I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend it. Fair amount of innacurate stuff and whatnot in there but it's not hard to sift out the stuff worth having. Pretty good prices and the quality isn't bad at all.

I really like the sabre guard! What kind of blades is it for?

The sabre guard looks like they're for the Dave Rawlings nylon wasters.

This should be a brilliant upgrade from my basket hilt!

The sabre guard only made it to prototype stage in 2012 unfortunately. I have one and it is great, but mine is made from a 3D printer and is not tough enough to use. I do not know if the KS guys will get round to actually putting them into production now.
In the meantime we continue to just remove the lowest side-bars from the plastic mortuary hilt so that we can grip it like a sabre.

It's for the David Rawlings Nylon wasters. A plastic blade being sold by the knight shop:

There's a good chance they may not be available.

The Knight Shop one-handed nylon sword blades are all interchangable (and in fact the same blade). One the prototype I have the heat-curved the blade, to make it even more sabre-like. In fact anybody can heat-curve their nylon blades themselves. I believe you can do it in hot water.
