January Highlight Item from Arms & Armor

The January Highlight Item is the sword of a King. The Henry V Sword, check our ARMS & ARMOR News for more details.



Sorry for the delay in getting this up. As Russ has so kindly pointed out we were a bit slack on getting this out Eek! Happy

We have had a busy new year and have been concentrating on getting some orders out. 2007 looks to be a good year for some new items and interesting highlight specials so we hope you will enjoy what is coming in the future.

Have a great 2007 from A&A

So how do you keep them on their toes without buying something every time you call them?

I find it darn hard not to order something every time I bug Craig or one of the other guys with a question or three.

Hello all!

Craig,

You're bad! You do know how to torture a guy, don't you? Wink

I've always thought the original sword was a great example of a cut-and-thrust sword. I've always drooled over your replica. Alas, it's still beyond the means of an aspiring author such as myself! I really need to get that book published so I can buy some nice toys!

Ever since I got my MRL "Drac" sword (no real comparison except for relative size), I've grown rather fond of the smaller knightly swords. I actually like the feel of my Drac. Apparently some medieval warriors did prefer shorter swords for serious fighting, at least according to Oakeshott. There are examples like some of the Type XIV's, the Henry V, and the Type X with the 26 inch blade, that seem to back up his belief. He also mentioned that the poet-warrior Grettir the Strong preferred a short-bladed sword for serious fighting, and kept his heirloom "Aettartangi" (apparently a longer-bladed weapon) for ceremonial occasions. I think Henry V might have felt the same; he was a no-nonsense warrior.

Stay safe!

??? Not buy something every time I call them? What is this weird thing of which you speak? I desperately try to keep the phone calls down to a minimum for just that reason!

The biggest problem I have with A&A is deciding which bits of their inventory I will be purchasing this year. They let me off easy with this one since I already own an Henry V, but I'm sure at some point this year they will have my number... or more importantly I will have theirs. Happy

Too bad this doesn't concern the hollow-ground version...

Another time maybe ? Wink

That Henry V is a great piece! I owned one for awhile and my decision to sell it was not an easy one. I'd love to get my hands on a hollow-ground version. Big Grin
