Welcome to Darkwood Armory

Welcome Guest! Would you like to log yourself in?

"We stand behind our products, because we also stand in front of them."

Thank you for coming to Darkwood Armory's website. We build some of the most durable theatrical,  SCA*, and WMA** reproduction blunt rapiers and swords in the United States, and we can ship all over the world. They are designed for use as blunted practice weapons, not just for wallhangers! We also carry many  accoutrements to make your practice safer and more authentic.

*SCA - Society for Creative Anachronism, see for more information.   **WMA - Western Martial Arts, see the Wikipedia  for more explanation.

We had a marvelous time seeing old friends at Pennsic, though the weather could have been more gentle :(  We are desperately trying to catch up now. We are NOT affected by the floodwaters, but are part of the team trying to help our friends and SCA family who are in need.  
If you wish to help those people in our Kingdom, please contact this flood's SCA disaster coordinator Master Erik of Telemark via Facebook or email at Thank you. 

  • we have our new Rust Erasing Blocks all over the website! They are solid blocks of medium-grit material so you can get a good scrub on those discolored or rusty areas. Take a peek here.

  • ~ (ignore the "NEW PRODUCTS" on the left. We haven't worked out how to fix the SQL error yet. We are updating the website for 2016 anyway, so we are leaving this one scruffy until the Big Unveiling!)

  • ~ Link directly to our In-Stock pages (CLOSED FOR PENNSIC - WE TOOK EVERYTHING WITH US) and check frequently for updates~  LW        (updating shortly after August 16th, after we've cleaned everything)

please call or email us if you want gift certificates or start a wedding registry.  

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK! (admittedly we don't say much, but occasionally we will announce a new look, a sale, or an event at the last moment.)

We hope to be at the following events in 2016

  • have an idea of where we should be in 2017? Email us at!

Thank you for being our customers!
