Since the turn of the century, Reliks has been dedicated to offering collectors and martial artist's the best handmade functional swords available from quality to pricing.
Reliks offers real functional swords, hand forged by professional respected sword smiths from around the world. These "battle ready" swords are produced by top forges to be historically accurate from tip to hilt and their authenticity makes them perfect for medieval re-enactments, stage productions and historical European martial arts (HEMA). Our functional Japanese katana range from entry level for the beginner martial artist to elite katana for practitioners that have mastered the art. The Japanese swords section is filled with katana that are built to perform in Eastern martial arts forms including tameshigiri and iaito. You will also find many other forged swords from Cavalry Sabres, Pirate Cutlass Training wasters and more in our functional sword store.

Where battle ready swords and medieval weaponry is our speciality we also offer a wide selection of complimentary pieces to fill out the collection. In the delicate balance between offence and defence you may be in need of a full suit of period armor from ringed maille to full plate armour. We carry a selection of shields as well as some DIY pieces like spear heads and shield bosses for someone looking to put together a custom hand made project. We also have a selection of renaissance and medieval inspired quality costuming made for everyday use at fairs and festivals as well as re-enactment and western martial arts clothing or garb.
It's true battle ready swords and medieval weaponry are our passion but we are also huge fans of modern knives made for every day carry, police, military, tactical and hunting purposes. We offer a large selection from several leading knife brands and like our swords, they are available on our website as well as our brick and mortar store in London, Ontario Canada.
