Here at Castille Armory we do something no one else really does: we focus on customize-able swords and other weaponry suited to SCA, WMA, HEMA and other reenactment and historical combat groups.

We use a mixture of pierce work, chiseling, etching and colorization to achieve the unique pieces you may see in our Facebook online gallery. If you want a sword or other item built exactly to your specifications, here is where to start.

    I am interested in an early to mid 16th century Italian spadone for SCA cut and thrust combat. Marozzo shows a simple cross hilt, but a portrait of Giganti shows him with a spadone with a single side ring. I’ve also seen modern swords with double side rings labled spadones, but can’t in the short term document them.

    Do you ship to Australia because it is not in the options when you go to checkout?

    Hi Peta here again, I guess the quillions that I would like on the complete clamshell would look like those on the single ring dagger, cheers.

    I am looking for some basic beginner equipment for the Dorchester Fencing Club. Specifically: I need breast protectors, gloves, and a left-handed beginner’s foil for foil fencing – nothing fancy to start!

      Per the website description, the blade and cross are made of 5160 CrV heat treated to a rockwell C of 50. the grip is T6061 aluminum with a covering of Line-X brand coating and the pommel is 12L14 machine steel.

    Hello, my girlfriend has a Chinese persona, and I was wondering what you would recommend for Frankensteining up a jian. I was thinking a dual purpose rapier and C/T blade would work, but I don’t know where to get the appropriate guard and pommels for a jian. Would your armory consider making jian guards and pommels, or perhaps whole jians? Additionally, does your armory produce sai’s to be paired with jians, or would that need to be Frankensteined as well? I don’t need the two all that soon, but I would like to know so I can plan for a future gift.

      Hi William, we have made jian’s before. we used a blade specific to the historical references. For this case, I would say that it would be more of a custom order. I think our basic dagger blade would work great for a Sai. To get these figured out and built to your spec, email our custom shop guy, the talented Mark Howland at mark@castillearmory.com

    Hello, I am interested in getting a cutlass, similar to the 1845 royal navy pattern, for use in HEMA tournaments. I think that your Messer blade combined with a honeysuckle sabre guard and 1853 grip would approximate what I have in mind. Would such a thing be possible and if so how much would it be?

    I am looking to have a sword made to represent my guardian angel Yehudiah. It would have to be made of the best steel you have maybe a modest version of Solomon’s sword with a wheel pommel with a gem aventurine set in it.

    Hello! I am curious if you can fullfil my needs, see i need a replacement pommel and guard for my longsword, i already have in mind what i need, an 8 inch crucible guard and a scent stopper pommel, however the threaded rod attached to my tang is larger then your threaded sizes go, so i am curious if you can custom thread mine larger? if so that would be great 🙂

    All the best

      Hi Wolf, we can do that! You can place your order through the website (just leave us a note on the checkout page describing what size tap you need in that pommel), or shoot us an email at info@castillearmory.com telling us exactly what you need and we’ll get you taken care of.
      Thank you,
      Lauren

    I sent an email and tried to send a request on the Castille Armory Website about a Chinese dual broadsword idea, not sure if It all went through properly. Please could you send me an email so that I know communications are working? It’s been a few days and I’m curious about working with you guys!

    Thanks!

      Hi Lee,

      Your email has been received. We get a lot of custom order requests per day, so it takes us a bit to wade through them all. But you are on the list, and one of our custom guys will get back to you with a quote as soon as he’s able. Let us know if you have any other questions!

      Thanks,
      Lauren
