Swords

Medieval Knights use two types of swords. The Espada is a one-handed, short sword used on horseback or in combination with a shield or another weapon. The Mandoble is a longer, heavier, two-handed sword used by knights on foot to deliver powerful blows.

Lance

A lance is a weapon used in battle or tournament. A knight uses a lance to knock his enemy from the horse. After the sword, the lance is the knight's primary offensive weapon.

Alabarda

This weapon is a cross between a battle-axe and a spear. It is used by foot soldiers to keep the enemy at a distance. A point is added to the back of the weapon so if the enemy was missed on the forward stroke, he could be stabbed with a backward thrust.
