Musketeer Swords, Musketeer Rapiers, and Functional Musketeer Swords

All for one and one for all! Usually, this proud proclamation is made while putting your sword with those of your fellows, proclaiming loyalty to one another, just as the legendary Three Musketeers did in the same-named novel by Alexandre Dumas. If all you lack is the sword for the gesture, than look no further than Dark Knight Armoury, as we offer plenty of great rapiers and musketeer swords to suit a variety of needs. Most often, the musketeer sword is the rapier, modeled after the ornate style of fencing sword that was favored in France at the time - a cupped hilt rapier. Many of the rapiers offered here at Dark Knight Armoury are fully functional, not to mention quite handsome to look at. The combination is a stellar one, making these blades perfect for the musketeer who likes some flourish to go along with his or her skill and steel. To go along with the rapiers, we offer a selection of matched companion blades as well. Known as main gauches, these daggers were used in the off-hand, to act as a primary defense for parrying, as well as a secondary offense, if the need should arise. What is a musketeer without their sword? A musketeer should never leave home without theirs, and if you lack one, Dark Knight Armoury has the perfect one to suit your need.
