As the owner/armourer at Red Hart Reproductions, Luke has earned a solid

The addition of Luke to the HE team will allow HE to dramatically increase the amount of reproduction armour produced, as well as expand in the direction of horse activities.

One of Luke's first jobs will be to assist Jeff with the completion of the harness for Arne Koets which is nearing completion, with delivery scheduled for early March.

Luke's next big project will be to help organize and train horses for the American Sword of Chivalry Tournament April 26/27, 2008/

On May 1, Jeff and Luke will begin accepting orders for reproduction/spring steel armour pieces with anticipated turnaround and delivery in 4-12 weeks, depending on the piece/s ordered.

Luke will continue to joust internationally, jousting at the IJL tournament in Belgium, and organizing the tournament at the Abbey Medieval
in Australia. Luke joins top jouster and medieval equestrian Dominic Sewell (UK) as a spokesperson for Historic Enterprises.

Historic Enterprises will be hosting a get together at Pennsic to welcome Luke to the US armouring community; watch for details on this forum, and thru the HE mailing list.
