So, I used to have several old issues of Museum Replicas catalog that eventually just fell apart and vanished. But I'm trying to find a few weapons from those old issues. They would have been small-sized issues from the late 90s.

The first one is a Scimitar said to be based on one given to one of the Kings of Spain as a gift. It has a very Moorish-designed hilt with a bone grip.

The second is a lovely bone-handled Rondel Dagger, but the rondels were not very pronounced, it was more just a round-hilted dagger (This might be tough to find) but they called it a rondel

and last is a lovely Rapier. It was fairly simple with a wooden grip, but it had a nice wide-ish blade.

I would appreciate any names that can be provided, along with the Issue numbers of the catalogs they're in. And, if anyone has the capabilities I would be seriously indebted to anyone able to scan images of the weapons.

Thanks

Old Museum Replicas catalogs? Hmmm...Those are quite difficult to find and I don't even have any.

Catalog #8
I still have some of the old catalogs scattered around. I think this is the one you're asking about.

That King's sword blade looks good,
Any chance there is either a sidesword or falchion with a double knuckle guard pictured in the catalogues, the falchion has a shell attached, and the rapier-sidesword looks to share the same guard minus the shell,
one coloured brass-gold, the falchion in steel,
Over here getting those catalogues was like pulling teeth from a vendor, mores the shame,

I actually purchased one of those swords many years ago, and still have it. No, its not for sale.

I recently had the hilt grip repaired/replaced on it, as the bone (plastic) grip cracked shortly after I got it.
