Single-handed swords: They were usually very light so you can have a shield with you but you will have very light armor as well. These swords weren’t usually sharp so they were best for people without armor but they they evolved and they gotten sharper so they can pierce armor on knights.
Two-handed swords: These swords were incredibly heavy so only strong men can use these weapons and they couldn’t use a shield and they had to use very heavy armor as well. They were very sharp so they can pierce armor pretty easily and they can take down foot soldiers with no armor very easily.
Daggers: These were used when they user lost his primary weapon, or when an archer gets too close to someone. If someone had no armor was attacked by a dagger they would die with one blow, if someone had light armor the armor can get pierced.
Claymores: This weapon was a kind of two-handed sword but it was very thick and very long plus very hard to break. It was not used much in war because it was way too heavy but it could reach very far almost as long as spears.
Hammers: These one were used more of a last resort since they can take down people with heavy armor but they can be taken down with a two-handed sword.
regular bows: normal bows could shoot far and a good archer could shoot 12 arrows per minute. The bow was a great thing to use during a great battle starts so you can take down most of the enemies for the knights.
long bows:These weapons were used to attack from a far away distance with great accuracy so then they can a knight with one shot.
crossbows: The farthest these crossbows can fire is at least 200 yards,and can kill or injure knights in armor. It was most used in war but they were also used allot by assassin’s. Even though crossbows were able to kill a knight with a single shot, well they are always in danger when they reload, so it was a dangerous part of the wars.

Swords:swords weren’t made individually but some swords had different thickness.
Hammers: Hammers were easy to make if you were a strong black smith and a wood worker.
Bows: All bows were made of wood with some string but they were all different sizes
regular: These are small bows that can’t penetrate armor but it can kill the animals that the person is riding.
long-bow: The long-bow can reach farther than the regular and can penetrate the knights armor a little bit.
