Weapons:

 

 

Knives

From the sharp flints with which primitive humans defended themselves to the carbon-steel bayonets carried by modern soldiers, the knife's history is a complex tale of technical ingenuity, artistic virtuosity and brutal violence.  Like its larger cousin the sword, this lethal edged weapon expressed the wealth and taste of its owner.  But it was also a vital last resort - easy to carry, quick to draw and always at the fighting man's side.

 

Swords

From the primitive edged weapons used by early humans through to those of the modern world, the history of the sword is a truly fascinating story.  It has been used as a fighting weapon, a symbol of authority, a mark of social rank and as a ceremonial object.  For centuries, the sword remained the first weapon of choice for the military soldier and its pre-eminence was secured by a combination of continuous technological improvements and adaptation to ever-changing battlefield conditions.

 

Personal Defense

For safety aware individuals, there are a variety of non-lethal personal defense weapons which are used for the act of defending oneself, one's property or the well-being of another from physical harm.  Such personal defense weapons include pepper spray which is a chemical compound that irritates the eyes of your attacker to cause tears, pain, and even temporary blindness. Also an air taser or stun gun which is an incapacitant weapon used for subduing an attacker by administering electric shocks aimed at disrupting muscle functions. And expandable batons for less lethal self-defense, also called collapsible or telescopic batons are like metal sticks of less than arm's length used to defensively strike, jab, block, and can aid in the application of armlocks. Also, our law enforcement gear page has police batons and handcuffs.

 

Medieval Weapons

It was the time of the crossbow and catapult, halberd and mace, battering ram, siege tower, sword and dagger, and increasingly more formidable armored protection. It was the Middle Ages, when weapons were of such infinite variety that hardly any two soldiers faced off using the same weaponry.

 

Martial Arts Weapons

Most martial arts weapons were developed from farm tools. According to the history of Japanese weapons, Japan conquered the island of Okinawa in the early 17th century. The Japanese emperor declared it illegal for citizens to own weapons, so the Okinawans developed self-defense techniques using simple implements. Weapons developed from this early period include nunchaku, kama, sai, escrima sticks, bo staffs, fighting fans, kubotans, etc. Also don't forget about ninja weapons like throwing stars.

 

Crossbows

A weapon consisting of a bow mounted on a stock that shoots projectiles, often called bolts.  Probably introduced to England by the Norman invaders in 1066, the crossbow was once considered so barbarous that it was prohibited as a “weapon hateful to God and unfit for Christians.”  The medieval crossbow was called by many names, most of which derived from the word ballista, a siege engine resembling a crossbow in mechanism and appearance.  Crossbows historically played a significant role in the warfare of Europe, the Mediterranean, and Asia. Today, they are used primarily for target shooting and hunting.
