Dagger Hilts and associated short blades

 

Our steel hilts are currently available in several models, finishes, and guard types. This allows for a range of customization to meet the buyer's requirements. All hilts come in either a factory blue black or wire brushed gray finish. Rod tang blades are mounted with wooden grips banded at both ends to eliminate splitting. These come in a natural wood or black stain finish. Other colors are available on request. All hilts are mounted with pommels of appropriate weight for the selected blade. Customers may request a lighter or heavier pommel. We currently produce two perforation patterns. The first of these is based on a Pappenheimer rapier in the collection of the Cleveland Museum Of Art.

Rondel Hilts

Above is a photo of two of our rondel dagger hilts, one in brushed gray steel with an unstained grip and the other in the blue black finish. Our hilt consists simply of two steel rondels and a steel banded grip. The rondels measure two inches in diameter. This is small enough to allow for a complete range of motion of the wrist in thrusting and parrying. Hardwood grips are five inches long and taper from a diameter of one and one eighth of an inch at the pommel end, down to seven eighths of an inch at the guard end. Grips are slightly oval shaped and flattened on the sides to allow for better edge control. Rondel hilts are sold mounted on one of our Safeflex dagger blades.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
