Musketeers' sword d'Artagnan

  • Overall length approx. 108 cm
  • Blade length approx. 86 cm
  • Length of the guard approx. 12 cm
  • Weight approx. 1,30 kg
  • Blade of spring steel W.Nr. 1.7102 (DIN 54SiCr6) quenched to a hardness of approx. 47 HRC

Made in the Czech Republic.

As a thrusting weapon the épée is similar to a foil (compared to a sabre), but has a stiffer blade that is V-shaped in cross-section, has a larger bell guard, and is heavier. The technique however, is somewhat different, as there are no rules regarding priority and right-of-way. In addition, the entire body is a valid target area.

Musketeers in the history

A musketeer was an early modern type of infantry soldier equipped with a musket. Musketeers were an important part of early modern armies, particularly in Europe.

The Musketeers of the Guard were a junior unit of roughly company strength of the military branch of the Royal Household or Maison du Roi. They were created in 1622 when Louis XIII furnished a company of light cavalry  with muskets. Musketeers fought in battle both on foot (infantry) and on horseback (dragoons). Because of its junior status, the Musketeers were open to the lower classes of French nobility or younger sons from noble families whose oldest son served in the more prestigious units. The Musketeers soon gained a reputation for boisterousness and fighting spirit as the only way for social and career advancement was excelling at their task as mounted light dragoons.

  • Historical Fencing and the Art of Sword Duels

    03/12/2020
    Weapons

    The art of fencing has been very well-known to mankind ever since the ancient times. The main purpose of it was self-defence and fighting. Over time, however, swordsmanship developed due to technological progress into various techniques, dominated mostly by Europe, but also China and Japan. But what is fencing nowadays? Is it a real combat, or just a well-prepared choreography, which is supposed to make the audience feel as though they travelled in time?

  • What Were Musketeers Really Like?

    There is probably nobody who has never heard of the famous novel, The Three Musketeers. Athos, Porthos, Aramis and d’Artagnan are arguably the most famous literary characters of all time. Nimble and charming fighters for justice were first depicted by Alexandre Dumas, and ever since, the motif of French knights of 16th and 17th centuries has appeared in several theatre and film adaptations. However, not everyone is aware that musketeers really existed. How much different were historical musketeers from their literary depictions?
