Sword of the Three Musketeers K-1142
"All for one and one for all!"
Those were the great words sworn by Athos, Aramis, and Porthos in The Three Musketeers, a novel written by the French writer Alexander Dumas.

Why were they called Musketeers? They don’t use muskets!
A Musketeer was a member in the group of bodyguards who protected the French royalties in the 17th and 18th Centuries. The Musketeers (of the book, anyway, I don’t know about real life) were a military company. But were charged with protecting the king, so wouldn’t normally have to go out in the field. They did use muskets, just not very often.

Set in France during the reign of Louis XIII, The Three Musketeers is a historical romance that tells the story of a young adventurer, D'Artagnan, whose life changed when he left his provincial hometown for Paris, and became friends with three Musketeers -- Athos, Aramis, and Porthos. Together they fought against the evil Cardinal Richelieu for justice, love, and friendship.

"So thus they lived in France of old,
When blood was young and hearts were bold,
And sword crossed sword for honor then,
When life was life and men were men."
