Happy New Year from Arms & Armor

We hope the dawn of 2009 finds you well and happy. We have two great deals for our January Highlight Special



To wish in a Flailing New Year Happy we though a great deal on an impact weapon was the ticket. So we have a nice price on either one of our flails and an even better deal if you buy both. Get all the details at ARMS & ARMOR News



Then check out a trio of custom made swords on our muster page. They would each bring a good bit of luck to the beginning of 2009 for anyone looking for the perfect sword to add to their collection. There are only one each of these, so if one appeals to you just give us a call!
Check out ARMS & ARMOR News for more details and info.

May 2009 be your best year ever from A&A Inc.

Those are really nice pieces. I like the one-handed knightly sword sounds like one you could "Errol Flynn" with. If only had money....
I have always wondered about the different chains on flails; do the different designs function differently (i.e. one type a little bit "stiffer" or maybe comes of the target more to one side because of the twist in the links?)

Email sent. The two longswords are gorgeous.

Craig that longsword with the faceted pommel is truly incredible, you might even want to think of adding it to your lineup! I'm very impressed Happy.

These occasional muster list posts are quite a bit of fun. Ever time I see one of the A&A posts on the Recent Discussion Topics list on the front page, I get just a little excited to see what is new. Eek!

I think I know where the idea for the longsword on the left came from. . . Wink

. . . except on mine, I'd be happy with a straight grip like the one on the stock BP, but if you want to do something fancy with the leather. . . Big Grin

Happy New Year Justin

The straight chain is seen on a percentage of flails that I have seen. The twisted link is more common I believe. It allows a smoother flow of the weapon and usually does not bind up as much. This is not usually a big concern with shorter chains but when you get to the longer ones it can knot up sometimes.

Hi Tim

Yes we have been pondering a few like this that may come into production. I need to get a few more things that are in the works finalized and then we will start on some new pieces.

Craig,
I look forward to seeing what new pieces you are working on. Hopefully some more pole arms like axes? And those are 3 great looking swords. To bad I am out of money for spur of the moment swords or I might have snatched one of them up.

I don't suppose you'd sell me just the head of one of those flails? I can put my own furniture on it, but the head I can't do.

Hi Joe

Happy New Year! We like having the muster page as well Happy I would expect that I will keep it up most the time or if everything sells (fingers crossed) it may come and go a bit. But it is fun to do some of these projects and it also is a good spot to move one ofs and training pieces. In current economic conditions it also allows an outlet for projects that the customer is not able to receive.

Have a great 09

Craig
