Historical Weapons Vol. 1

En garde!


This Historical Weapons library features all the clashes, rings, snicks, taps, whooshes and scrapes you need for your next battle-based project! Our Audio Craftsmen recorded two professional swordsmen engaging in duels with an array of authentic swords, including an 18th century court/small sword, Victorian infantry sabre, High Medieval long sword, Renaissance rapier and more!


This useful collection also includes recordings of medieval weaponry (battle axe, hand axe, warhammer) hitting and scraping the the edge, front and boss of Medieval wooden shields. The same weapons were further utilised in flesh impact sounds (where their contact made with a juicy watermelon is captured).


Our multi-mic configuration (comprising the Sennheiser MKH50, Røde NTG-3 and Line Audio CM4 Stereo Pair) provide additional perspectives to the sounds and offer a multitude of layering options. Perfect for film, TV, game or documentary projects requiring action and historical accuracy!
