Hi all,

I've just spent the last few days bashing my website with a very large lump of wood and now it has PayPal buttons!

Every page has been updated with new pics and secure online shopping facilities.

Please spread the word, as there's tons of cool gift items there, all made by yours truly.

Paul, have you ever tried making traditional planked shields, pavices etc? I know a fair few people who would be interested in traditionally made shields.

I could certainly do traditional shields.

Problem is, shields plus already do most kinds of shield to a high standard for a low price.

I could do the larger pavises and custom shields though

They do plywood shields, whereas there doesn't seem to be much available in the way of traditional plank constructed shields - especially for rotella for example. Not only are the plywood shields not authentic, but as far as I have seen they only curve in one plane, whereas lots of original shields are curved in two or more planes (or even domed).

I have found a supplier if ridiculously hard woods, so I can now do the following:


Ash
Oak
Padauk
Walnut
Cherry
Purpleheart
Lignum Vitae
Zebra Wood
Amazaque
Cocobolo

Leadwood
Ebony
Hickory

these are listed in a basic price order, with the last 3 very limited in terms of availability and/or size.

The leadwood is in very short supply and I can only do things up to 16" long and 1.5 inches in diameter.
Minimum orders and max dimensions may apply to various items. contact me for quotes and details.
.... or I could be completely wrong.

I've just updated the martial arts section.

www.historicarts.co.uk

Now available are a host of eastern weapons as well as more detail on custom work.

Of interest to the HEMA types should be :

Messers
Truncheons
Dussacks
Weighted versions of weapons for strength training.

I'm currently gestating the idea of Indian clubs with lead cores or interchangeable steel weights, as well as stubby swords with weights. Nothing as refined as the "swing" (TM) From MBlades, but kinder on the wallet.
