Misc cathegory finally added. The description on brass knuckles was kind of weak, I think I need help explaining, or do everyone know what it is?

I agree that the brass knuckles description needs some work, but, for the life of me, I couldn't think of anything better. I think my brain if fried from this week at work. I also just wanted to say that this is a cool little article. You have spent a lot of time and effort on it and I wanted to tell you that I thought it was pretty cool.

Thanks,
Josh

PS. At the top of the list, you said that this a list of blunt medieval weapons. Were brass knuckles used in Medieval times?

Thanks, but yes, Im not sure. TTK mentioned them and I thought they were, but besides, alot of things we didnt know existed back then existed, did you for example know that there actually was a form of martial arts that circulated europe back then?

Best to remain a question for TTK! 8)

Yeah, I would be interested to know. I am not saying they weren't, I just was not aware of it. And I think I did know about the martial arts, it sounds familiar anyway. :D

Possibly not, but what about Caestus? Basically boxing gloves, but often with bands of metal across the knuckles. It's a Roman origination, don't know if it carried into the middle ages, but it might be worth looking into.

Caestus added :)

It would fun if someone did thread for axes and one for swords, Ive allready been stocking up on fun swords (like the Jian) and axes (Fasces and more). Im not so big on these weapons and wont make a thread about them. :wink:

[quote="The Hordesman"]Im mostly looking in weapon specific books, since they are the best (the most others give the actual historical events the most space).

It may not be [i]100%[/i] correct in all means, but atleast its easier when talking to eachother. :wink:[/quote]


I wish I could get a hold of some old knights weapons and armor books,then I could post some stuff on here and it wouldn't hurt to do some reading. :wink:

Corsiar, a bit of advice... if you have nothing to add to the topic, do not post. Instead, do more reading to better educate yourself on the customs of the forums and medieval history in general.
