Questions and Answers

What Govern’s the price of a sword?

There are several factors involved:

A: The skill of the swordsmith usually earned after many years of working experience
B: The historical accuracy of the piece being constructed
C: The quality of the finished product this should be instantly recognisable And finally all the direct and indirect expenditure involved in the mechanics of running a business too numerous to mention.

How many swords does the armoury construct in a year ?

Depending on the size and design and the amount of work which goes into the overall construction between 25-35. For example the large flamberge swords of the landsknecht are elaborate and can be so to the extreme. The Wallace sword is a large sword as is the Scottish Lowland two hander at 6 feet 3 inch overall. Therefore the man hours can vary considerably from sword to sword.
