Back in the early 2000's a small group of medieval enthusiasts sat down with a 100lbs of steel wire, setting out on the daunting task of creating a suit of chainmail armour. At the time it was almost impossible to find commercially available weapons and armor, forcing enthusiasts to build their own. Doing so meant wire, lots and lots of wire, and hard work. As work progressed on the first hauberk (chainmail shirt) other calgary enthusiasts showed interest in commissioning armour of their own. Thus Dark Age Creations was born.
Fast forward over a decade later and much has changed. DAC remains Canadas only active armoury however Western Martial Arts and Medieval history have become extremely popular and grown massvly over the last 20 years. Hundreds of organizations meet at conventions, events, fairs and shows each year in Canada alone. The demand for our products has never been higher and over the last decade DAC has branched out from its orginal had crafted armour to now include hand crafted weapons, archery equipment, shields , leatherwork, jewelery accessories and much much more.
A large portion of these items are still crafted to this day locally in our Calgary shop by our team of smiths, artists and fletchers. Other items we may not be able to produce such as our wide selection of masks, fencing jackets, synthetic swords and training gear are hand picked products from other speciality companies located in Canada, the United Kingdom, the USA, Spain, China , Japan and many others. Regaless of if its an item crafted by our smiths locally or something we bring in DAC is proud to supply these quality products to provide access to Canada's larges source for historically accurate and functional arms, armour and equipment.
