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: 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.

Review of: Florentine Cinquedea

This is a fantastic blade and a must for any collector. The craftsmanship from the tip of the blade to the pommel is great.
The scabbard is well made and the protective grease is easily removed. In the hand it feels like a much smaller blade.

Review of: Late Period War Hammer

This has to be one of Windlass Steelcraft's/Museum Replicas best designs. It is a sturdy piece with just enough heft without being too weighty. Perfect for a medieval knight or footman to wield and looks like it came directly from a museum! Very happy with this piece!

Review of: Secret Love Dagger

Now this is really COOL!  I ordered mine sharpened and the point/edge are scary sharp.  The hidden storage capsule on the hilt now holds a picture of my German Shepard.  A great blade!

Review of: Italian Arming Dagger

Although I had never seen this handsome dagger listed in one of the MR catalogues, I found it while browsing the website, and SHAZAM! I became intrigued.  Because of the length of the slim blade and the artistic values of the grip and pommel (which I would call "tulip-shaped," rather than "fishtail," a minor quibble) I expected this dagger to be lightweight; however, when it arrived and I could handle it, I found that my expectation was wrong:  this is a serious weapon with a battle-worthy blade and a solid heft. The thick medial ridge contributes to the weight of the blade and makes it a genuine armour-piercer capable of thrusting through a mail hauberk as if it were canvas.  The handle is beautifully contoured and provides a secure grip.  An outstanding dagger overall!

Review of: Late Period War Hammer

A Mighty War Hammer that is solid as a block of steel and has unbelievably devastating power on the down swing.  This is a heavy weapon, but shows well.
