Silver Swords Armouries
Before wars were won with guns and tanks, warriors battled hand-to-hand with swords and knives, and knights followed chivalric codes. Silver Swords Armouries' renaissance aficionados hope to teach people what it was like to be a man-at-arms during those simpler times, so they lead lessons in old-school weaponry.
In a small-group setting, participants learn to properly wield swords, knives, and bows and arrows. Unsure beginners can take a three-hour introductory course to get acquainted with the school's vast array of weapons, and more experienced students can perfect their rapier-handling and axe-juggling skills.
Silver Swords Armouries, which was founded during the final year of the Ontario Renaissance Festival in 2003, also supplies historically accurate and functional arms and armour for collectors and the stage and film industry.
