hey does anyone know the sizes for these I'm trying to make  paper replica of these for a friend. Thx

Nice. Reminds me of some of the Elven weapons that Wetaworkshop made for the LOTR trilogy. I could almost see these being used on the set.

Can you buy just one? I don't have a twin.

Simple yet elegant design. It may just be a trick of the camera angle, but is one of them longer than the other?

Regardless, I'm getting more and more interested in ordering one of your fine works of art.

I think it was more the angle and the lighting.

Awesome! They actually look kinda big, or at least kinda heave for short swords, so I'd probably prefer to have a handguard on them, at least one for the front so my hand doesn't slide over the base of the blade and get cut. XD

Distal taper is the name of the game. Have enough of it and weight goes down. Very rarely should you ever have a blade that is the same thickness all the way down.

those twin shortswords how much do you take for them if they are still arround?
LongshipArmoury Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Unfortunately, these were made years ago for a customer. If we were to make new ones, they'd probably be around $1400 for the pair without etchings and $2200 with the etchings.

These are an order I placed with John 7 or 8 years ago. I sold them to another collector to fund a motorcycle purchase, and have regretted it ever since. I've got an order for a similar set from John in the works.

As nice as they look in the photo, they're even nicer in person. The fine detail work that John did with the handle and fittings was just amazing, and not pictured is the scabbard and baldric set up that John designed for them.

I'm liking this a I could see anyone carrying around two of these in his/her back sheathes....Nice blade designs, and nice work! :)

These weapons are exactly what I wish to use for my story if I may?
LongshipArmoury Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Go for it. Just credit, if you will :)

Really Brilliant! I love the detail and craftsmanship!

Nice work. Just lovely. Thank you for sharing them.

Love them! I've been searching for good twin blades like the ones I imagine for one of my characters since yesterday morning and I love these! His are longer but that's not the point. They're great.
And yeah, reminds me a little of Legolas' knives in LOTR.

I would like to dual wield them
sagiblin Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
I would like 1 of those, same shape longer handle and lighter in color with a sturdy guard, more like a short version of a falchion. I would keep my bow in the left hand and be able to draw from the back or left side. The single edge would work great for the martial arts I've done ----how much?

Shoot me an e-mail at and we can go into detail about materials, fittings, etc to determine a quote.

zenoshitomora Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010
I got a character with blades like that (different colors though)
TheDreamSmiths Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010
Awesome blades
belrosfletcher Featured By Owner May 10, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
These really do look like they would handle so sweet. Very pretty and elegant blades with a nice curve.

Would be a happy man if I could practice ambidexterity with those for a while :)
