As usual, I'm indecided on my battlegear, and now I'm thinking about two handed weapons.
Persona: dismounted knight
Period: 1366
Place: North Italy

Here there are the choiches
My question is: which of them are historically "accurate" for my period?

None of those? Happy best would be to look at the period artwork and go from there, the pieces on those images does not seem to match any existant samples in mumber of details, for one, they seem to be purposefully crudely worked, whoch would not really be fitting for a knight.

Try to track down these two Italian books. They are the best sources I know of for 14th and 15th century arms and armour in Italy.

Lionello Boccia and Eduardo T. Coelho, Armi Bianche Italiane (Bradamante Editrice, Milan, 1975).
Lionello Boccia, Francesco Rossi, and Marco Morin, Armi e Armature Lombarde (Electra Editrice: Milano, 1980).

Those are indeed great books. Expect to pay a minimum of $500 each if you can find them for sale.
