As an archer, your main weapon is the bow. But it is also a good idea to take a page from the historical archers book and always arm yourself with a secondary weapon as well, just in case your enemies happen to get too close for comfortable archery. That is why Medieval Archery offers a selection of swords, daggers, and axes - so that you can arm yourself properly and stay safe no matter what range your foes decide to attack you from! Arming swords and Viking swords are two of our more common blades in this section, as both are one-handed weapons that were light and easy to carry, yet devastatingly effective when placed into skilled hands. We also offer a few hand and a half swords, better known as bastard swords, to suit the archer who wants options with their melee weapon. We also carry a variety of different of short blades, varying between classic medieval daggers and more traditional hunting knives. This ensures that reenactors can have their preferred short blades, and modern-day archers and hunters can have a dagger to suit their needs too. And for that unique archer who wants something a bit more non-traditional, we offer a handful of hand axes and battle axes to add to your armory as well. A secondary weapon can sometimes save an archers life, and they make for great training tools if you decide to expand from historic archery into medieval swordplay. If nothing else, a sword, dagger, or axe from Medieval Archery helps add some authenticity to your medieval look, while also adding some intimidation to your overall look as well.
