Drawing upon the outstanding quality and range of the Royal Armouries collections, we are proud to present this range of fine quality replicas. At each stage of the process, from the initial selection to the last details of the prototypes, the Museum’s experts on armour and edged weapons have been personally involved.
These replicas are impressive in both their look and feel, accurately capturing the dimensions, materials and processes of the originals with tremendous attention to detail. The Royal Armouries is delighted that enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy these objects ‘at first hand’.

By tradition the original dagger belonged to Henry VIII and was probably a hunting weapon. Its blade is long, hollow-ground, single edged and decorated with etched roses and pomegranates.
These were respectively the badges of King Henry VIII and his first wife, Katherine of Aragon. Her badge probably dates the dagger to the first decade of Henry’s reign.
Probably English, about 1510-20; the wooden grip with steel pommel and ferrule, 1960.
