(Home) (Looking At Amour) [Spam]
Articles dealing with everything from 'theories of what makes good tools' to pitfalls of studying old tools and old ways of doing things, to fallacies others choose to believe.
May 15th, 2001. These articles deal with unusual aspects and my own ideology of our work and the work of others. Some will be quite fun or humorous. Some will infuriate those members of smithing cliques who whole-heatedly believe the dogmas fed to them. I don't care. I'm in it for the joy of producing things of beauty and function. To hell with the rest of them.
Looking At Armour is my first page in this series. When looking at armour in a museum we would all expect to see flawless construction and setup and repairs. Visit this page and see if you can guess what went wrong with the armour in the photos. I will explain this problem later after armoursmiths have a chance to see it and take their best guess. Everyone can makes mistakes once in a while and a simple mistake is often unnoticed even by the person who made. It happens.
