Weapons and Armor at the Detroit Institute of Art


The DIA has a wonderful selection of arms and armor. I also have more about this museum here.


Here is a beautiful display with some not so common bladed weapons. They include a Cinquedea from about 1480 (1) a mace of gold silver and steel (2) and a handbill (11). I have seen bill hooks and they are always big two handers. I never saw one this small before. It is quite unique.

Here is a closer look at that unique handbill.
