  1. Happy Halloween to everyone. For those in the northeast suffering the after effects of Sandy I hope that life will return to normal for you as soon as possible. May God bless and keep you in these times of trial.

    For everyone else I hope that you have a safe and enjoyable Halloween with no tricks and lots of treats.

    As it's my 50th birthday today I am offering an additional 10% off all orders today. It's a great time to get your Christmas shopping done for the sword and knife enthusiast in your life.

    Here's a cute little Halloween Light Show video for you to enjoy.

  2. Mountain Brand T-Shirts On ClearanceExcalibur Brothers has made the decision to discontinue carrying The Mountain brand t-shirts. While we believe they are the best quality printed t-shirt available on the market today sales have been consistently slow over the 2 years. Recently The Mountain also abandoned their wholesale only policy and is currently offering their complete line of t-shirts to the general public on their own e-commerce website.

    While they are selling at the full MSRP and our prices were slightly less we believe that most people will buy directly from the manufacturer whenever possible as long as the prices are competitive. This and a few other factors have led us to discontinue offering the line and to clearance price what we have left in stock. All T-Shirts are now $9.97 plus shipping and a sundresses are $18.97 for what we have left in stock.

    Check out our Clearance Items page to see what sizes and styles are still available.
  3. The 13th Annual City of Farmington's Renaissance Faire is taking place this weekend in Farmington, NM at the Rocky Reach Landing in Animas Park off Browning Parkway.

    Admission to this event is free and there is parking available for only $3.00.

    There will be lots of food, fun and entertainment. The faire is open on Saturday from 10AM to 7Pm and Sunday from 11AM to 5PM.

    Check out this YouTube video of Las Gitanas gypsy dancers from last year's event.


    I could not find a weapons policy on the website so it would be best to contact the event coordinators to find out the actual policy but as always if you include swords and knives as part of your costume make sure you have them sheathed and peace tied for safety.

    As a side note if you are looking for a great sword that will withstand the stresses and trials of Ren Faire combat checkout out the blunt Hanwei Tinker Re-Enactor's Longsword here:  http://www.excaliburbrothers.com/product/SH2395
  4. Excalibur Brothers is happy to announce that Musashi brand swords are now available.

    Musashi swords are fully functional, sharpened, carbon steel swords at affordable prices.

    Excalibur Brothers now offers the entry level line of Musashi brand samurai swords and katana. These swords are made with carbon steel blades but are competitively priced to match or beat the prices of many stainless steel replica display swords.

    You'll love this line of swords. Affordable, functional and hand crafted with quality and care. If you are unsatisfied for any reason you can return the sword for a full refund within 10 days no questions asked. We even refund any ground shipping charges you may have paid when you ordered.
  5. The days are growing shorter and the nights are getting colder. This always signals the end of renaissance faires and medieval festivals in the northern states. But there are a few weekends left to hang out and have fun. One example is the Ohio Renaissance Festival.

    The faire is still running this Saturday and Sunday October 13-14, 2012 and next weekend October 20 & 21, 2012. The event is open 10:30AM to 6:00PM both days. If you buy tickets online they are only $16.99 for teens and adults a savings of $3.00 off the gate price. Children ages 5-12 are only $8.99 a savings of $1.00 off the gate price.

    There will be tons of entertainment including live music, stage shows and even a full armored joust. Plus this weekend's theme is Oktoberfest so there will be plenty of beer and brats at the village pubs as well as the annual pumpkin decorating contest.

    Check out this YouTube video from the jousting and sword fighting events earlier this year.




    A few notes about the festival. No pets are allowed, you may not bring outside food or beverage into the village and all weapons must be tied in a sheath at all times.
  6. Excalibur Brothers has added several new knives including some from master knife makers Gil Hibben and Kit Rae.

    Throwing knife enthusiasts will be really excited as there are 9 new throwing knife sets available. We are excited to announce that Kit Rae not only has a new fantasy knife but being a throwing knife enthusiast for years he has finally ventured into the throwing knife sector with 3 new knife designs and a throwing axe.

    You'll also want to check out the new 12 piece set from Master Cutlery that includes a target board to perfect your knife throwing skills.

    Gil Hibben Eclipse Bowie Knife - Damascus Steel Limited EditionWith big game hunting season upon us it's a good time to buy or replace your hunting knife. Gil Hibben has released a limited edition Damascus steel version of the Eclipse Bowie Knife. I wonder if using it to gut a deer would increase or decrease the collectible value of this knife. There are only 1000 pieces of this design available worldwide. It's a great Christmas gift idea for the hunter and knife collector too.
  7. Hi I'm Lawrence Piper the owner of Excalibur Brothers.

    It's Halloween time, my favorite time of year. Not only because you get to dress up in costume and be someone else. Not only because there is always candy, parties and plenty of festivites. But also because it's my birthday on Halloween.

    Perhaps you've seen this picture on the home page. This was me a couple of years ago. I used a normal Knight's costume found during Halloween season at one of the specialty costume stores that pop up. But I added one of the 22-9900 Medieval Knight's Helmets, a chainmail coif that has since been discontinued and a 20-9064OL Braveheart Medieval Sword.

    This Halloween is even more special because this is my 50th birthday and being a true Hobbit and LOTR fan I want to give everyone who comes to my birthday party a small present in true hobbit fashion. That's right if you buy something now through Halloween October 31, 2012 you will an additional surprise item included with your order automatically. If you spend more than $199 and your order is shipped in the lower 48 states you get free ground shipping as well.

    So stop on in, look around, you're sure to find something for your Halloween costume and it's not too early to start thinking about Christmas presents for the knife, sword and medieval enthusiast in your life.

    Happy Halloween
