Oh, that glaive is tempting...

Ed Toton has a custom A&A glaive that's almost identical. I liked it in pictures, but I *LOVED* it when I got to handle it. Its lightening fast in the hand, and really bridges that gap between a sword and a pole arm.

Hi Bill

Glad you liked the glaive. When did you get to see it? They are very handy weapons. There is a reason one sees so many of them in period art depicting battles and sieges.

Ed's one of my students, so I saw it recently when he first got it.

Yes, I brought it to class within a few days of it arriving here. I must say, I'm extremely pleased with how it handles as well! It's much lighter and more agile than it looks. Truly a remarkable weapon.

Photo of it next to the Henry V after that arrived as well:

You would think with the current conditions off the horn of Africa they would at least allow some boarding Pikes Happy

Makes one look at shipboard life in history a bit differently when most people had at least a knife and many had access to all sorts of deadly things to settle disputes. Not to mention a quick shove at the opportune moment.

Not to mention an officer who people did not like Eek! One sees why midshipmen where needed to keep the boundary clear.

I see someone bought the Glaive. I'm going to regret that eventually I bet. I was >< this close to pulling the trigger on that one but then the thought occurred to me that I still haven't hafted that halberd from last time around so I vacillated. Happy Next time...

That Glaive rocks- I love a well-made glaive. Sadly I can't afford to change my mind right now. Oh well, I'm sure that it's gone to a good home...

Thom

Great picture. Glad you like the mace. It is one of those excellent weapons that always make people smile when they pick it up. Surprised alot of people think it will be heavier than it is.

Hi Tinker, know the feeling about being able to afford to change your mind, if only people realized how vital it is to buy lots of swords Happy . The glaive is going to a good home. A local fellow has it on the way to him right now. Nice stuff on your site of late, as usual Happy, keep up the good work my friend and keep fighting the good fight.

Thom,

Great looking piece. Is the mace blued, if so, did you have it done or did it come that way? Maybe its just the photo light perhaps, but looks great.

Congrats on a nice addition.
