The above is a photo of our Fiori type longsword in a black finish with a maple grip. This is similar to the swords depicted in the treatise by Fiore dei Liberi entitled Fior di Battaglia ('Flower of Battle', also known as Flos Duellatorum) of 1410. Blade blanks are 54 1/2 inches long overall. Stock blades are therefore available in lengths up to 43 inches with an 11 1/2 inch tang or 42 inches with a 12 1/2 inch tang and so on. This design dates back as far as the 14th century and possibly earlier. Our hilt has an 11 3/4 inch long cross guard, and two, one, or no open side rings. The example depicted has both rings. The side rings measures 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. The the pommel weighs 16 ounces and is pear shaped. Custom disk pommels are also available. This hilt is available on our Alchem flat tang longsword blade. These blades have a 3/8 inch wide by 1/8 inch thick rounded tip for those individuals who do not wish to use a rubber blunt. The rounded edge varies from 1/8" thick at the middle of the blade and tapers down to .066 inch to .071 inch at the back end of the flare of the tip. The point of balance is about 3 inches ahead of the guard, depending somewhat on blade and grip length.

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.
