The above are photos of our simplest cruciform hilt which we refer to as our "Aguirre The Wrath Of God" model. According to "The Archaeology Of Weapons" by Ewart Oakshott, plate 20 top right, this design dates from 1420 to 1450. Our hilt consists of an 11 3/4 inch long cross guard, and two open (unfilled) side rings. The side rings measures 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. An optional perforated plate may be added at a cost of an additional $10 to cover the side rings as seen on the example to the right. An optional knuckle guard, as depicted on the example to the left, is now available which may be ordered separately for an additional $15. The wooden grip is from 5 1/2 to 6 inches long and the pommel, on the example to the left, is our large 1 3/4 inch diameter ball. Guards may be ordered straight (I), serpentine (S), or curved forward (C shaped). The Aguirre hilt may also be mounted on a dagger blade.

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.
