Welcome to Silver Sword Armouries

 Silver Swords Armouries was first conceived during the final year of the Ontario Renaissance Festival in 2003. Since then it has been a major supplier and a source for instructional use of historically accurate, practical and functional arms for both the hobbyist as well as the discerning collector.

Silver Sword Armouries in Oakville - Learn To Use Swords



 Archery is a universal sport, found throughout history and around the world in virtually all cultures over the last 60,000 years. But because it is so ancient and embedded in the popular conscious, most people believe they should be able to do it almost automatically with little or no training. The truth is there are numerous steps to master.

 Archery can be as much a martial sport as Karate, requiring equal parts of calm stillness and focus. Our First-Time class will set you on the path to becoming as good an archer as you wish to be.



 Our advanced classes are just that: ADVANCED. We will cover the basic fundamentals and mechanics in more depth, working towards the successful grouping of arrows at farther distances.


 An art, skill, and sport, knife-throwing is a satisfying hobby and physical activity. Body position, aim, and muscle memory all play a part in a successful throw.

 This class aims to create a novice to intermediate knife-thrower. By learning and understanding different principles, movements, and techniques, the artist will have a foundation in which to grow.


 Do you want to throw an axe as a party trick or for self defence? Do you want to hit a target with your axe from more than a dozen feet away?

 If so, you have come to the right place! Silver Swords Armouries will teach you the basics and more for the art of axe throwing.


 Sword combat training is an excellent way to learn balance, patience and skill.

 Here at Silver Swords Armouries you can learn broadsword, bastard sword, axe, spear or rapier, with or without shield or off handed weapons as well as unarmed combat techniques.

 Students of the sword can learn the combat techniques of the masters from the 12th through the 17th centuries.

 We offer instruction and range time in the safe and fun use of high powered air pistols, similar to a BB gun.

 The pistols, based on the Colt 1911 platform, are much higher powered than the average air pistol and are as close to the weight and handling of a real 1911 as you can get without needing to be licensed.

 Hello everyone! Even though Winter may not be done with us quite yet, hopes of Spring are starting to enter our minds so we would like to remind everyone that while we almost always have a good selection of day/afternoon time slots available, the evenings classes are already booking into mid March and our Saturday classes, with only a few scattered exceptions for 1 or 2 people more each, are booking into mid April. As the year progresses our evenings and weekends will begin to book further and further ahead into the upcoming months so if you have not yet booked your voucher purchases, you must do so before their expiry date in order for them to still be valid.

 There have been some new rules and guidelines introduced governing voucher redemption. As long as you book the lesson by the expiry date on the voucher then the voucher is still valid even if the class takes place after that date. If the expiry date passes before booking then the promotional value will expire but the purchase value can still be applied as a discount against our regular session rates.

 We look forward to continuing to offer you the best in training for all our Martial activities. Huzzah and Forward!

National Post Article on Silver Swords Armouries

'Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world'
At Casa Loma's Renaissance Festival this week, across from a magic show and a presentation of hawks, Rob LaPier was selling an arsenal of throwing knives, swords, axes and daggers. The National Post's Melissa Leong spoke to Mr. LaPier of Silver Swords Armouries, which appears at medieval fairs around Ontario, about his pointy merchandise.
Q What are you selling?
 A We deal in historically accurate arms and armour. We cover the medieval and renaissance time periods over a number of different cultures. We have knives, swords, daggers, armour, throwing weapons, archery equipment, and related books and DVDs.
Q Why do people buy the weapons?
A The majority of them end up in the hands of collector's and those with an interest in things both medieval  and martial. Others are purchased for the puposes of using them to train with as I also train people in historically accurate combat forms.
Q What about this DVD: Knife Defense -Reality-based personal protection?
A With any luck, no one would need such information and/or training. But unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world. If you were to find yourself in a situation where the next five seconds of your life could possibly be your last, it would be nice to know that even after firstly having done everything possible to avoid that kind of encounter ... you were able to handle it effectively and walk away in one piece.
Q How do you keep bad guys from taking home a samurai sword?
A We try to assess everyone that comes in. I've never had to keep a baddie away. I believe it's the way we conduct ourselves. We have specific rules such as no one under 18 being allowed in the booth unless they are accompanied [by an adult ]. Anyone that wants to examine a weapon more closely is supervised in a special area, away from the crowd.
Q What are your most popular items?
A The knives and daggers are always popular, especially the throwing knives.
