I just purchased the Oslo sword with scabbard belt. I am very pleased. The weight and balance is fantastic, not to mention this swords overall beautiful finish. I will be purchasing more from this forge. Scaal, to the craftsman who took the time to make this weapon.
I am writing this a week after receiving the sword and I must say it is expertly made and meets my expectations and beyond. It feels sturdy and well built, I can tell it was hand made. It is exactly like the sword in the movies and it's actually bigger than I expected, the picture doesn't do it justice. The scabbard and belt are also well made and feel comfortable to wear. There was only one thing you should know if you purchase this sword that I discovered after examining and using the sword. The grip will leave a residue on your hands which can be hard to get off if you don't wash your hands right after, but after the first few uses the amount of residue lessened so it's not that big of an issue. The sword does come with a one year warranty for the blade and fittings if there are defects in material or assembly. Of course it doesn't work for abusive use or imporoper maintenence but they have a guide for proper sword maintenence on their website and in the warranty. I also got a free dagger and I chose the Ranger Dagger. It is wonderfully made and a nice addition to the Anduril Sword. If you're looking to buy the sword for love of the movies or to get a real battle-ready sword cabable of defending your life if need be this will meet either or both standards. If I were to purchase another sword it would definitely be from Darksword.
Incredible sword! Mike was great in communication with me as to the shipping date and process. I needed the most authentic as possible reproduction of a Templar sword for my Masonic Commanderie KT presentation; and this was way beyond expectations. The pattern welding and, weight , balance and feel are perfect (as realistic hand forged) but not fake cast perfect. This sword is as real as it gets!. Thank you so much! I love it.
Received my 15th Century Hand and a Half Sword delivered to my house no more than an hour ago. It is extremely light, well-balanced, maneuverable, versatile and elegant both in ascetics and in regards to how it feels in the hands. Scabbard is extremely pleasing to the eye and seems quite durable. Both the sword and the scabbard posses the handmade charm you'd expect from such a product as well. I can't wait to begin integrating it in my routines and drills!You can also consider this a review of Darksword's customer service skills. Initially I received a less-than-perfect edition of this sword roughly a month ago. The sword was bent/warped/twisted and I immediately contact darksword the next day. Within two days, I had the prepaid shipping label Darksword sent to me and the sword was sent back to the manufacture a day later. I've done business with this company before so I knew better than to think that this sort of occurrence was a normality. With that said, the entire process was long but the team at Darksword was informative and cooperative for the most part as to informing me what was happening with the sword and when I could expect a replacement. They were honest, helpful, transparent and kind. Shout out to Michael Embers for being such a great customer service rep!
I got my Mid 13th Century Sword and Norman Dagger today and the beauty of these blades are simply awesome, the leather work on the grip and the scabbard is stunning, the fit and finish is also very fine, my only complaint is the gap in the guard, it is especially noticeable on the dagger, where one side sits snug to the blade, but the other side protrudes out about 3-4mm. But overall the construction is top notch. I can't wait to get mine sharpened and do some cut testing. Darksword Armory has done a fine job, on these blades. And I'm glad to have them in my collection.
It’s got very good swords, although, they are so expensive!

I bought the 11th Century Viking Sword and 2 of the Danish Viking Axes. The sword has a VERY (and I emphasize VERY) slight "tweak to it (Sign of a real hand forged sword). I love it, as it shows it is made by hand. Both are very sharp and beautiful. Scabbard looks truly time appropriate. I couldn't be happier with both. 1 axe was left out of the shipment but when brought to the attention of the armory, they replied promptly with excellent customer service. I would highly recommend this company/forge to any and all of my friends and will continue to order from them exclusively. I hope to be able to afford one of their premium swords in the future as I know it will look and feel amazing. Great company/forge. You won't regret ordering from them!
I bought one of your Templar swords and it far surpasses what i thought i was going to get. I knew you sold great quality products but this sword is like no other that i have bought. The weight and balance are on par and the scabbard looks gorgeous. Thank you for the time and effort you put into your blades it really shows in the end.I will defiantly be buying more blades from you in the future.
These guys are amazing, beautiful weapons, great service, accommodating and very fast shipping.Looking forward to my next order!Thanks so much Darksword!
