Some of these photographs are also to be found elsewhere in the Mediaeval Arms and Armour pages (eg helmets, swords etc), but all of them show this Unusual nature so well that they just had to be included.
We hope you enjoy the fun and fascination of these odd and unusual creations.
Feel like a KING in your own custom made throne. Sturdy wrought iron frame with your choice of material colours (black, brown or green), your family crest or your initials. Can be crowned with a gold crown held by rampant lions.
Flamberge (literally "flaming") swords usually have fairly simple wavy blades, but these ones seem to be exploding with steel flames. (Another name for wavy swords is "flamboyant" - which certainly applies to these examples.)
This is a strictly ornamental replica of the fearsome armour-buster of Medieval times. With this spiked club on a chain a knight could destroy an opponent's armour, jamming the suit's joints and pummeling the man inside it. This weapon allowed a fighter to even strike around his adversary's defenses using the leverage and flexibility provided by the chain.
..Altogether a very nasty weapon.
A Very Customised Helmet
This is a practical piece of armour - in fact it was made to be used in competitive rattan stick-fighting.
..and an even more customised one..
Under the dramatic and theatrically decorative touches this helmet is a solid and authentic sallet.
