A family business founded by ‘Bad’ Billy Mertens at his hidden headquarters in Beamsville (Ontario). Bill (Haudenosaunee Mohawk/Scots, raised by Germans) and his Family have grown up in and around the Niagara Valley & Escarpment, raising Children, Chickens, Dogs, Cats and…Grapes. Anyone who has ever spent time on a working farm knows the value of a good blade! BBB has been providing quality blades to the public at events, festivals and especially re-enactments. Bill and his Family are well known & respected in the re-enactment community; they regularly attend/participate in events at Stoney Creek, Fort George, Backus Mill, Longwoods, Fort Erie…as well as other events & Faires. They’ve even been known to associate & trade with Pyrates!
We specialize in hand forged and Historic Weapons, Tools & Accessories: Tomahawks, Neck Knives, Historic Steel Arrowheads, Trade Axes, Broadswords, Viking Seaxes, Straight Razors, Sgian-Dubh, Scottish Bollocks Daggers, Hand Beaded Wampum Belts, Deerskin pouches and more. Many of our items are unique collectibles you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
Of course, we also carry a large selection of modern, practical, bladed instruments – from pocket folders to machetes, survival Bowies to hatchets…even tools for the next “Zombie Apocalypse”!
Occasionally we will even have an assortment of strange and exotic weapons that may only be practical in your wildest, darkest, comic book hero nightmares.
