Michael Z. Williamson is an expert with almost twenty years experience in the crafting and repair of cutlery and armor. He started with an interest in quality swords, which were not commercially available at the time. The obvious solution was to build his own. The first efforts were crude, heavy, and rather inelegant, but progress was made.

While serving in the U.S. Air Force in an engineering unit, he began repairing and sharpening knives for other unit members. Since leaving active duty and transferring to the reserves, cutlery has been his sole occupation.

Whether selling at trade shows, conventions, or his store; fine kitchen knives, basic pocketknives, high-end folders, military tactical blades, historical reproductions of swords, antiques or custom pieces; cleaning, sharpening, repair, or restoration; he is available to serve your needs.

Mike is also an accomplished writer. To view updates on his upcoming novels and other projects visit: www.michaelzwilliamson.com.

 

John "the Blacksmith" Eaves is a native Kentuckian who refers to himself as a professional has-been, and justifiably so, because he has been anything a person can think of: Teacher, policeman, bartender, machinist, restaurateur,antique dealer, and correctional officer all fill his resume. But no matter what the pay check that particular year, the smoke from the forge and ringing of his hammer were always in the background.

John began swinging a hammer at the age of twelve, inheriting his tools and abilities from a long line of artists and craftsmen in his family. A keen interest in history and antique weapons has fueled his forge for the past thirty-five years. The wares he produces have been offered for sale at numerous renaissance faires, SCA events and gun and knife shows, as well as science fiction conventions and art galleries. John has recently graduated from the status of blacksmith to that of artist, teaching metal arts for the Kentucky Arts Council in various schools in the Louisville area, and teacher of basic blacksmithing and bladesmithing for the University of Kentucky extension service.

Along with producing copies of historical pieces John also designs many new pieces each year. John prefers to work with all natural materials; synthetics are seldom found on his table. Genuine amber, mother of pearl, various types of horn and bone, natural gemstones and sterling silver are common on his pieces. All blades are hand forged. John's normal working steels are 1095, 01, W1, L6, and 1060. No Stainless -- Don't Ask.

Custom orders are welcome.

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.
