2006 Arms & Armor - a Great Deal and Pole Arms


Arms and Armor hopes you have found 2006 agreeable so far. For our part it has been busy, a bit challenging (when the water pipe broke) and strange (nearly 50 degrees the other day in Minneapolis), not your normal January. But as we have not had to shovel as much we are catching up on some of our back log and striving to make each piece something special.

There are some new items in our custom section, can you say "Pole Arms". There are some really nice things here, we almost did not send them out as we liked them so much.

Take notice as we start a new program featuring a Highlight Item each month, an item with a special price and quick delivery. See the details on our ARMS & ARMOR News page on the website. Take care if you are weak on the instant gratification side of things. Eek!

We will also be keeping up on our "Ready to Ship List" as several customers have requested it be a feature on our news page.

We hope all are well and look forward to helping you in 2006 Happy

Let's see how much gushing can I do here...

First Craig let me say that you guys did an outstanding job with those custom pole arms! Is there any inclination to add any of them to the standard product line? The Vouge for instance... ahem... Blush

As for the highlighted item... now I know you guys are trying to bankrupt me. First I could never resist a deal and then then secondly this falls right in line with my collecting goals. Fortunately for my checking account I already own a Schloss Erbach but I expect to be ordering several something or others this year now...

Lovely new arms, folks! It's great to see a top manufacturer investing in these weapons.
I used exactly the same material for my tassles! By the way, if you cut each loop at the end and separate the strands, you get more volume with less material and something pretty close to the look of original tassles. I've taken a hard look at all of the original tassles I can find, and it seems they were sometimes made exactly as we're making them. I use domed brass tacks around the "collar", which also seems to have been common.

Craig

I agree that those are fine looking polearms. I love your plan for the Highlight Items. The slightly uncertain "...approximately each month..." timing sounds like a great idea to bring additional traffic to your site. I know that I will be checking often (though I am tapped out at the moment).

Craig;

Good to see the other Pollarms you have been working on they look real good.

The highlighted items is a great idea and at some point what I want will appear at the same time that money will be available.

The list of what is available for immediate delivery is something else I will have to consult every couple of weeks or so.

Craig,

Those polearms are fantastic! Also, I love the idea of the 'Highlight' items. I'll definitely be on the lookout for such items. A&A has a couple swords that I've been coveting for several years now and if I see them as Highlight items, I'll likely snatch one up. Cool I'll wait and see what's next since I already have a Schloss Erbach (the old-school one, ca. 2000). I can't stop looking at those polearms! -Ted

Hi Craig,

I love each one of those new polearms, the halberd is a most menacing looking weapon as are the glaives. The featured item is an excellent idea, having the German Bastard Sword, Durer Bastard Sword and the English Longsword, the Durer arrival just a week or so ago and the Irish Sword arriving tomorrow, I will pass on the Schloss Erbach. Laughing Out Loud As of tomorrow I will have 3 of your hand and a half swords and 3 single hand swords and the Italian 3 Ring Rapier. Plus numerous other items. Big Grin

I know I am going to want either the Italian Bill or one of the new polearms to go with the 12th Century Spear and the Danish War Axe. Oh Boy is this Addicting! Eek! Laughing Out Loud

Bob

Hello Guys

Thank you for all the kind words and comments. We aim to please Happy

Russ yes you may see one of the polearms shift into production. There has been a lot of interest in the Vouge. I am a bit leary of putting something we hand forge into the regular line as a bit of variation occurs on such items but if that is stated in the description I would expect most customers would be accepting. We strive to have things very close to those pictured on the web as it is important for the customer to have confidence when they purchase from a picture. The price on the Vouge is pretty reasonable as well so the production model would not decrease that by much.

The tassels are one of those elements that pole arm appreciators like but usually the average customer is not interested in. I will try your suggestion Sean. Thanks for that. It is interesting how efficient and effective these weapons are. We have been doing pole arms for years, mostly for ourselves as there have been times were I have carried a finished pole arm in the rack for over a year. The public, say at a Ren Fair are rarely drawn to them. Those that like them the most tend to be WMA types and reinactors.

Just wanted to post as well that to clean up the travel on the web site a bit we have the Ready to Ship List on its own page linked from the front page and you can book mark it and check anytime you like.

Best to All
Craig

I am a little confused Craig, I thought all of your stuff was hand forged.

The majority of A&A's items are made mainly by stock removal.

Okay, it is the first! Yay! Yay! YAY!!!!

I've checked your site several times today with shaking fingers and laboured breathing. I either have to see a new item for sale soon, or enroll myself in some sort of stalkers anonymous program.

Regards, Michael

Hi Michael

The highlight item will adjust soon just not tonight. Its been a hectic month for us and we want to make sure we have the highlight items ready to go before the offer is out. We have a tendency to work on the when its ready schedule as opposed to what the calender says.

Addison I would expect the pole arm to adjust in the relatively near future.

Best

No problem. Hope I didin't come across as pushy. I am just excited about this new rotating sale item every month. It will be a nice excuse for me to keep frequenting your site (not that I really needed one before).

By the way, I also really love those pole arms. Getting one or more into production would be great.

Regards, Michael

I agree that the highlighted item is a great idea. Hopefully I have some cash on hand if the English Longsword comes up. If not, I could be convinced on a couple of others too...

Is this highlighted item deal for swords, or will pole arms and axes and such be included also? I really have my eye on the Danish War axe.
