Our journey began in 1971 when our founder, Bill Adams, founded Atlanta Cutlery Corporation. Supported by the largest sword factory in the world today, Windlass Steelcrafts, we quickly became the number one source for hand-forged weapons and armor in the United States. With our deep passion in history and all sorts of weaponry, we became a resource to museums and studios globally. Over the years we started supplying numerous weapons, armor, and other props, as well as expert advice, to film studios around the world.
