- Windlass Steelcrafts
Windlass Steelcraft is a company based in
Dehra Dun, India, producing replicas of swords, sabres and other historical arms and armour. The company goes back to a 1943 establishment selling Kukriknives. They are the official contractor for United States Marine Corpsceremonial swords and have produced cinema props for movie productions including " Gladiator", " Kingdom of Heaven" and " Troy". Their main reseller in the U.S. is Museum Replicas Limited, a company owned by Atlanta Cutlery Corp., a mail order catalog company for hunting knives.
Windlass blades are a low price option for mass produced historical replicas, comparable to
Hanwei. Their blades are shipped unsharpened, with an edge of about 1 mm, and some reseller may offer sharpened versions for an additional fee. Their longer blades have been criticized for being too "floppy" and for having a chrome coating.
