Arms & Armor November Highlight



Winter, winter, it is here, with a bit of a vengeance in Minneapolis. We have been shoveling all weekend, but it also means now is the time to get moving on the holiday preparations. So we have strapped on our elf shoes Happy and thrown a new belt on the grinder to get ready for the Holiday Rush.( fingers crossed Eek! ) So check out the great deal on our 006 Horsemanís Axe as our November Highlight on the News Page.





We also will be adding some new items to the Custom Page and on the Muster Page. Lots of opportunities to make sure your friends and family can find you that special something for under the tree. So donít be afraid to have them call and we will be happy to help them find just the right thing to make this holiday great! Happy

Be well!

Craig-

That rapier (both versions) is fantastic. I love it. It would look great alongside my Elector of Saxony dagger... and would also compliment my Saxon Military Sword. Imagine that trio.

I've wanted one of those horseman's axes for quite some time, too.

I'm impressed with you're consistently coming up with attractive new swords and other weapons and often of rarely made sub-types.

That horseman's axe is a steal at the price and I very tempted but should wait a while before I make another major purchase, but maybe I will be able to give myself a Xmas present before Xmas.

Somebody please buy it before I weaken. Wink Razz Laughing Out Loud

Thank you guys. I will pass on the compliments to the crew. We all work together on this stuff and they deserve the majority of the credit. I hope to keep up with updating the custom section as there are many projects we have finished that I am sure folks would like to see..

As an example:

Craig, running out of superlatives and the variety and quality of " gorgeous " work is jaw-dropping stupendous. Happy Cool

Considering the full custom quality of the work the prices are a great bargain for anyone " NOT " in financial survival mode: I really hope you get the sales the work you are all putting in deserves.

I'm glad I could help your bottom line with my recent purchase of a Spiked Mace ( Really really nice that one. Wink And I'm sure that this month's Horseman's axe is also much more impressive when one finally has one in hand than what even good pics show ....... ).

Andrea,
Please do not post in ALL-CAPITAL letters. On the internet, it comes across as shouting, which is rude.

Happy

Do I have to be up at 2 AM in order to get the best deal? Because I will if I have too!

Thank you guys for your appreciations of the pieces. Jean I am glad you are enjoying the mace. Just take care when in doors as it can ruin most furniture, walls, ceilings and just about any interior decor item with little effort Eek!

Scott yes definitely something a bot like that though I may tuck that idea in my pocket for next year.

Good to see you here Andrea, I have a back log of custom stuff to get up and I tend to let the pieces seattle in at home before posting them Happy I did get your email just have a lot to answer of late will be in touch soon.

No worries Jason, the special will be from 9:00 to 4:30 on Friday! No standing in line in the cold for my customers Happy unless of course we are besieging some prize and then we would have fire and a good supply of vitals and drink laid in.

Best

These are just stunning! I love the photography as well.

Huh, if I saw photography like that on the Gustav Vasa rapier, I don't think I could resist the temptation any longer...

Hi Marko

I have not done a picture in that format of the Gustav to the best of my memory, but after a bit of digging I did find a shot of the piece we did for the Royal Armories in Stockholm.

This is with the gold plating and such and some extra details to match the original as closely as possible.


It turned out quite well I think Happy

Craig, those are great new pictures of the custom Haudegen that you made for me, especially the Still Life - Sword with key, flagon and candlestick.

Arms & Armor is making me another custom sword, a Classic Amsterdam Walloon. I'm sure it will turn out as wonderfully as did the Haudegen.

I got to see Bryan's smallsword, and it is a thing of beauty. It not only looks stunning, it handles amazingly as well.
