We offer over 50 different sword guards, all made by hand here in the U.S.A. While most combat sword manufactures use mostly round stock to build up their guards, we have taken a different approach. We cut all of our guard parts from 4130 carbon steel plate so that they have a greater protective coverage and historical aesthetic. We have broken our guard selection into 6 categories- Rapier & Side Sword Guards, Sabre Guards, Basket Guards, Long Sword & Arming Sword Guards, Dagger Guards and “Other Guards,” for those hard to categorize guards. All of our guards are based very heavily on extant pieces. Depending on the guard, we offer customization options including quillion types and finish.
Some of our blades will not fit some of our guards. To help with this, we have added a list of blades that are compatible with each guard on the guard product page along with other specifics and a drop down list for available options.
