Renaissance Weapons

Renaissance weapons were not very different from medieval weaponsSwords and daggers were still widely used, even if they were more evolved than the war tools of the Dark Ages. Newer weapons that were to play a major role in later human history were entering the scene, such as firearms but they were not yet reliable. Cut and thrust swords were prominent in battles during the early Renaissance and giant two-handed swords like the Zweihander also saw action. Further, the rapier was fashionable among the civilians if not the military as a duelling weapon and status symbol.

Other weapons included the one-handed war axe and the two-handed battle axe, which were popular with the Celtic warriors. War hammers and maces were also favored. Another much-appreciated weapon was the pike, a long and narrow thrusting spear that could be up to 25 feet long. Then there was the dagger, such as the Continental main-gauche (off-handed dagger) which was a rage in England in the 16th century. Museum Replicas carries a fantastic range of these Renaissance weapons, including an array of daggers, stilettos, main gauches, war hammers, and maces. Each product in the selection is fashioned by the best craftsmen in the industry and contains excellent detail. They are perfect for the weapon collector or re-enactor.

Review of: Late Period War Hammer

I purchased this as a deal of the day.  Great price...fast delivery.  It came well packed and in very good condition.  Some have complained of imperfections.  Mine was in very good condition although the cord wound handle did look somewhat dirty...I'm assuming from the handling of it by the packer who probably had oil on his hands from the hammer itself.....yes....it is well oiled so be careful.
As far as a weapon....this would be formidable.  A good weight that could cause serious damage and a spiked end that would easily penetrate metal.  It adds nicely to my collection of various items from MR.  I've had great service and experience with MR.
Will definitely order again.

Review of: Silver Hilted Dagger

I bought this from the Deal of the Day.  It's very elegant, but the hilt is a little more gold toned than expected.

Really nice stiletto, great quality! Perfect accessory for a woman’s renaissance fair costume

Review of: Venetian Stiletto

This is just beautiful.  I love the guard and pummel.   The handle with the twisted wood is what drew me to it initially.  Long sharp point makes this truly an assassins weapon.

My only con is the scabbard.  I wish Windlass would provide the option to purchase a better one that fits and matches the weapons aesthetics.

Review of: Florentine Cinquedea

I loved the detail on the pummel and most on the handle with the studs.  Fullers were symmetrical and the blade is sharp.  I highly recommend this to one who collects.

Review of: Veronese Ballock Dagger

Just wanted to update my review. My opinion of the dagger stands, but I want to add something. A really nice woman called from the company asking how to make it right. I said I was still happy with the company and didn't want a discount. This is why I will purchase more stuff in the future. Great company.

Review of: Italian Arming Dagger

I just received this dagger in the mail.  Opened it and was absolutely delighted with the purchase.  I ordered it sharpened (let's face it...what's the point of having a dagger if not sharp).
A very nice blade, sharp point.  Balance is great.  The handle feels nice in the hand.  Beautiful finish on the wood handle makes for a comfortable and stable grip.  Outstanding dagger for the money.  Well worth the purchase.

Review of: 16th Century Italian Mace

I have had this mace for years. Travelled the world with me and no rust, no oxidation, etc. Heavy to use but what a home-defense weapon!

Review of: Silver Hilted Dagger

Just received this from a "deal of the day" purchase.  It is the 4 item I've purchased over recent months and absolutely love it.  In one word....beautiful.  
The weight and handling are excellent.  I had this one sharpened and it clearly would be an ominous weapon if ever put into actual use.  As mentioned, this is my 4th purchase from MR and in every case, I've been delighted with the purchase.  Great workmanship, detail, and aesthetically pleasing to view and handle.  Am looking forward to receiving the Musketeer Rapier that I just ordered this past week.
