After looking all over the web to find places that sold swords for stage combat, I decided to post the list of what I found here.
I have noticed that some places say they have "stage combat" swords, and others say "battle ready" or "re-enactment" swords. Some don't say what their swords are for, but they appear to be blunt, rather than sharp. I'm not sure of the difference, but I have separated these sword merchants into categories based on what they claim their weapons are built for. Please note that any purchaser and/or user of these items does so at their own risk and I make no guarantees about anyone's products.
Note: you will not find exclusive makers of sharp swords, wall hangers, or "sword-like objects" here.
