Sometimes the hardest subject to write about is yourself.

This ancient weapon was once used by foot soldiers as a deadly weapon. After the 16th Century, flails were used only as historical decoration. Each fine replica is hand crafted from top quality materials. The 1 lb spiked steel ball is supported by a studded chain attached to a 15 1/2" rivited hardwood handle.

I always respected her and have tried to make my entire family proud of me.

The Middle Ages saw a trememdous development in many types of weapons. Some of these weapons are still in use today but some of the more unique ones, because of their very specific applications, are no longer seen. Yet they remain as a testament to the nature of the medieval battlefield.

This quote used to bother me as a young person because I wanted perfection to be a complete picture, not just a piece of the puzzle, but as I have grown up and learned to appreciate how much effort one needs to exert to achieve the “perfect” anything, I see the wisdom of their saying and now I too espouse it...
