The Man at Arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was a capable and competent warrior who was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. Although he was not a Knight, he fought and trained alongside them as a brother in arms. To honor these rugged, reliable, salt-of-the-earth warriors they have created a range of true journeyman's weapons that they have called the Man at Arms Collection. An optional companion dagger is also available. Scaled down in size and almost identical in appearance, fit, finish and materials. In truth it makes a terrific off hand parrying weapon and can stand alone in its own right as a dagger you can wear with pride on any occasion. Every Hand-and-a-Half Sword and dagger reflects the highest standards in workmanship and materials. To safely house your sword and dagger, they have also included attractive scabbards made of wood covered with black leather, with steel throat and chape.
