Blades and Bows have been appointed the offical UK distributor of John Barnett Original hand made knives and swords.

Our first delivery of John Barnett Originals has arrived and wow! We are very impressed. These products were everything we expected they would be and more....big heavy and robust these hand crafted weapons appeared to have been lifted straight off of a medieval battlefield and transported through time to our warehouse.

Each product has been made entirely by hand by John Barnett and his small production team in his workshop in Scotland using authentic materials localy sourced including genuine Scottish deerskin leather for sword grips and knife scabbards and real highland stag antler for his knife and dagger grips. Even the stitching has been done traditionally by hand, each hole being painstakingly hand punched into the leather before stitching which means that no two products are exactly the same and each item has the look and feel of a truly authentic medieval product.

John does not believe in puting false finishes onto his handmade products and the hard work he and his team put into each item is reflected in the refined yet rugged finish each piece has. On closer inspection file marks are still faintly visible, leathers have been hand cut by knife and the stag antlers have been hand worked and polished by hand even the rivets that hold the heads onto the ash hafts of his axes have been hand cut and hand hammered just as originals were.

We are very proud to be the sole UK distributors of these truely unique and honest hand crafted products. For the customer who is looking for a product with genuine character and rugged authenticity these products will not dissapoint.
