The scarf sword depicted on the above has substitute a hard wood grip and grip. We can at the same price as on the sword depicted above an all steel guard. Several years ago one of our suppliers cut and shipped us several hundred of a discontinued dagger guard by mistake. These have been collecting dust and rust on a shelf in our shop. It recently occurred to me that these could be cleaned up, finished, and mounted on our flat tang blade to make what was known in the early 1600s as a scarf sword. Scarf swords were so named since they were carried tied in the knot of a sash worn over one shoulder or wrapped around the waist of military officers, as was the fashion of the time. Collectors sometimes refer to swords of this type as town or pillow swords. The latter names were given since in the days before reliable small firearms, they were supposedly worn by civilians when out on the streets, or kept near the bed or even under the pillow for defence of the home against intruders. Our product is basically a small rapier at the price of a dagger. Scarf swords were simple, consisting of a short cross guard, grip, pommel and a light blade. Ours comes with a 34 inch long blade a 10 ounce pommel and wooden slab grips. Blades may be ordered as short as 24 inches in length. Comparing our scarf hilts to other models mounted on similar blades, inch for inch the scarf sword is our lightest rapier.

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.
