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: English Bill Polearm Head

I do wish that the socket was wider but I managed to fit it snugly into a 6’ X 1-5/8” pole then pinned it on. It looks great and feels powerful while still being light and nimble to use. As soon as I picked it up I knew why it was such a common and popular pole arm. If I was a lower to middle class medieval soldier (and I would be), this would be my weapon of choice. These are kind of hard to find, but a must-have for us Wars of the Roses Stans.

Review of: English Bill Polearm Head

For the price, this bill head is a great deal! It is very straight and it is well tempered..

A note concerning the diameter of the socket: while it states 1 3/8 inch size, the INNER diameter is around 1 1/4 inch at its thickest. Hopefully this info helps when trying to taper a pole or handle to fit.

Overall it is a great value, considering that Medieval/Renaissance billhooks are hard to come by unless custom made. I highly recommend this head.

Review of: Sergeant's Halberd

I used this head to built a 7-foot halberd, with the MR Greek spear butt cap at the opposite end, which looks great and has good weight as a counterbalance. I used an oval red oak pole, which is about 1" on the narrow measurement, and about 1-1/4" on the long side of the oval. The oval shape feels great and allows for proper indexing, and also has greater strength along the striking axis of the oval vs. a 1" round pole. I do still wonder if the (red oak) pole is strong enough given the narrow and short socket, but I'm loathe to test it.. .. I sharpened the axe, hook, and blade edges myself. I found the inside diameter of the halberd head socket to be almost exactly 1" at its widest on mine, and the depth of the socket was right around 5" if memory serves. The socket is drilled for a pin, which is ideal as I always make and use one.

Review of: Mercenary Holbein Dagger

During WW2 the German Army utilized this same Holbein design for many of their dress and utility daggers.  Ergonomically designed and sharp as a razor, this is one impressive knife.  Double edged with a sheath as handsome as the blade itself, this is a must buy at the price it is going for here on the Museum Replica site.

Review of: European Boar Spear Head

Its great, but not as good as the winged spear head the use to have.

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: 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.
