Mobility on the Medieval Battlefield
posted on September 04, 2009 03:08:28 pm
When most people think of medieval armor, it’s probably a suit of metal armor that springs to mind. In fact, chain mail and heavy suits of armor were effective at protecting the body but they hindered mobility. Imagine trying to run around in the heat of battle wearing a creaky coat of armor. And forget [...]

There are several noticeable differences between European swords and those forged in the East in countries like Japan, Thailand, and China. Most oriental swords are lightweight and have a slim blade.

We’ve all seen those enormous and at times gaudy swords often found in fantasy films, books, and comics. But many people often ask… would those swords actually work? There is some truth to the oversized and ornate fantasy swords, as such swords did exist in the past. The claymore, a two handed sword that originated [...]

So You Want To Buy Chainmail?
posted on July 17, 2009 10:08:13 am
