Dear friends,

As I promised to my friends in myArmoury I am posting this to notify you. I hope this is the right please. My new print article entitled "The Magnificent Beauty of Edged Weapons made with Persian Watered Steel" is just published in the current issue of Asian Journal of Martial Arts.

There you can see pictures of new artifacts that have not been published so far. As well, I have provided a glossary of terms in Persian alphabet.

As you see my article made it to the cover of the current issue:

Congratulations from myself as well! Wootz and "watered" steel are very fascinating to me.

Congratulations and I will try to find it at a local bookstore.

From the site I found this page that gives locations where the magazine might be found:
http://goviamedia.com/store.php?crn=222

I would rather find a store that has it and buy it there than get a subscription to find your article but it might become a magazine I buy regularly or when an article of particular interest to me is published.

Just read a great " sample " article from the magazine on the history and use of slings:

Seems like it's a magazine worth taking the trouble to find. Wink Cool

Dear friends,

This year is the year of humanities and all related fields in the International Book Fair in Frankfurt. My first book Arms and Armor from Iran has been reviewed very well among academic circles and therefore, this year I will be a key speaker there, presenting my research and next book

Lexicon of Arms and Armor from Iran: A Study of Symbols and Terminology

Few speakers were chosen to give a speech and I am really happy and honored to be among them.

I would be happy to see myArmoury members who can make it there.

Kind regards
Manouchehr

I am wondering what your thoughts and personal theories are regarding the possible origins of the ores and imported ingots used in Western Persian blades?

The small number of active archeometallurgists seem to be compiling a progressively larger body of evidence (smelting sites, recovered crucibles, etc.) suggesting that crucible steel (actually largest known ingots, some of the right carbon composition to behave like India Wootz) was being made from Turkmenistan and farther West from dates of around 0 A.D. throughout most of the medieval period. It seems to remain true that the most beautiful and highly prized/famed artifacts were identified as having been made from imported India materials, but I am wondering if this might have been something of an exotic exception for products from areas like Damascus.

Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence!

Crucible steel ingots were made in Turkmenistan and also in Khorasan, other production centers existed as well for sure. I am doing further research in this field and a research team set up in Iran is gaining more and more information. I will write on this issue later in an article.
