About Us

Heron Armoury was created in 1990 in Herne Bay, Kent and has produced many swords, knives helmets etc for use in re-enactment as well as living history pieces and western martial arts. Each item is made for the requirements of the individual and fit for purpose.

My First sword took two weeks to make and when tested was destroyed in under one minute. The underestimation of the stresses swords are subjected to in use, was the challenge that became Heron Armoury.

Over the last 23 years it has been my aim to combine the strength required to withstand repeated use and at the same time produce something hopefully pleasing to the eye, and to achieve this every part is manufactured at the workshop form the shaping and heat treatment of the blade to the forging of the fittings and final construction and finish.

This all makes it easier for me to check every care is taken, and ensure the weapon or helm is able to withstand what's required from it by the customer.
