There was a time when the cold weapon was not only an instrument of war but also a safeguard for the defence of one s person and one s honour. So it comes as no surprise that expert manufacturers have improved the weapons form and performance, and made the required changes to adapt them to further demands, included the fashion ones. The evolution of self-defence and duelling weapons, in particular from XVI century to early XX, represents an important chapter in the history of technology, applied arts and taste, and in the art of fencing. The renewal of forms and ornaments, reflection of the changes in the art of fencing, but also in society and traditions, is widely showed by the author and by himself illustrated together with Daisy Mazzetti with drawings of historical samples of cold weapons made by him, which highlight their most remarkable details.
