Authentics War Club
Our sharpening service will provide a good serviceable edge on the blade. The result is typically “very sharp” with a small secondary bevel and a bit of an “apple seed” profile. The resulting edge is somewhat dependent on the particular blade. Some blades will take and hold sharper edges than others and the thickness of the blade will determine how wide the bevel will need to be. We adjust the angle of the edge to suit the specific blade and attempt to get as close to a bevel-less edge as possible without marring the surface of the blade.
The Sharpening Process
The sharpening service is done with a belt sander. The process involves many passes with sanding belts of various grits. The blades are rested between passes to prevent them from becoming hot and damaging their temper. By default we will sharpen as much of the blade as possible including any false edges if appropriate. If you have a different preference, feel free to make that request in the special instructions at check out. We can sharpen only the last half or third of an edge, for example. Our sword sharpening expert has personally sharpened several thousand swords at this point, so will provide you with a professional service.
What the Service is Not
The resulting edge will be “sword sharp” not razor sharp. Our goal is to provide you with a usable edge for cutting practice that will hold up to some use and not require constant re-sharpening. In other words, we intend to provide you with a serviceable weapon, not a personal grooming implement. The service will not provide a completely bevel-less edge. To create that type of edge will necessarily scratch up the blade surface and we lack the machinery and time to provide a full re-polishing of a blade’s surface. A service of that nature would be significantly more expensive as a great deal more time would be required. We do not offer this type of service at this time.
We make no guarantee that the resulting edge will meet with your expectations. Every blade is different and some will take and hold a sharper edge than others, due to the blade material, heat treatment or geometry. Some customers can also have incorrect assumptions about sword sharpness and improper expectations as a result. All we can say for sure is that the resulting edge will be sharper than the default edge, in most cases, significantly so. We can not provide any refunds for the service once it has been completed, so consider it to be provided “as is”. That being said, if you are unhappy with the product for any reason, we do still allow you to return the item for a full refund, including the sharpening costs under our normal return policy. This does not apply to special sharpening requests, for example if we sharpen something specially for you that does not normally list that option on our site. The vast majority of our customers are happy with the results of the service, so as long as you keep the above mentioned in mind, we are confident you will be pleased with the results as well.
Maces / Hammers
Why would you choose a mace or hammer over the sword?
Swords are often the most romanticized and sought after pieces for a collector and modern HEMA martial artist. The truth is, you would find many more of these simpler weapons on the medieval battlefield than the sword. A knight would train with the sword from a very young age and would normally be noble at birth. The time and expense to train a knight was very costly as was the price of a sword smith and quality armorer to outfit and protect your investment. Thousands of infantrymen would be trained strikes and strategies with clubs, maces and hammers until later periods when the warhammer became an effective and regular piece of equipment in the knight's arsenal as well.
How would you use war hammers and maces?
There are several key strategies but the main thing that is always true. You must find a way to break through your opponents defenses to be effective. In the early periods or dark ages most opponents would be protected in maille armor and possibly carry a shield. These types of weapons can be swung with quite the momentum and can knock a shield from someones hand if used well. With this defense removed your opponent would still be impervious to cuts in a suit of maille but was still susceptible to bludgeoning attacks. This could deliver many types of injury resulting in a victory.
Once armor evolved into full plate, strategy began to change as well. These new knights were like tanks but not without weakness, especially to the war hammer. Many hammers and pole arms would have a bludgeoning end but would also be equip with one or more spikes or spear points for digging in weak areas of the armor like the elbow joints and armpits. Some heavy spikes could also pierce straight through poorly constructed plate. The hammer if used correctly could also impair your opponents mobility by denting the armor so the articulated joints would bind up and fail. Your opponent would quickly be at your mercy if he could no longer lift his arms because of dented pauldrons.

Cold Steel Indian War Club 24" Overall Length Polypropylene Black
No one knows when the ball headed war club first appeared. It was in common use in the early 16th century and was popular with the war-like tribes of the American eastern seaboard, eventually spreading to the Great Lakes region and northern Canada all the way to the Great Plains west of the Mississippi.
It has been speculated that the wide adoption of this weapon was because it was relatively easy to manufacture, in that it required little or no metal, and because it was unspeakably effective.
The better clubs were carved from a naturally curved hardwood root burl, sapling or tree branch. This insured that the wood grain would curve in parallel lines though the handle and into the ball itself, avoiding the pitfalls of cross grain which could weaken the club and cause it to break at an ill-timed moment. Hornbeam (Iron Wood), a hard dense timber that was strong and was resistant to impact forces, was the most preferred material, even over such stalwart choices as Ash, Maple, Oak and Hickory.
In battle, a dedicated blow from the ball of the club could easily break a limb or crush a skull like a bat going through a watermelon. For added dynamism, and increased effectiveness, the ball was sometimes spiked with an antler, bone, knapped stone, or even iron.
The Cold Steel version is approximately 2 ft. long and features a 3 1/4" in diameter ball. It is fitted with a removable blunt, short steel spike. Hornbeam is scarce and not readily available in commercial quantities, so the Cold Steel War Club is injection molded out of black Polypropylene which is practically unbreakable. It will never rot, crack warp, splinter, swell, shrink mildew, or fade. For historical re-enactors the surface has a realistic wood grain finish that can be easily customized with paint and can be ornamented with brass studs, tacks, or feathers.

Him with my finger. He could hardly restrain himself from groaning for the whole train and planted my mouth on his penis, abundantly flooding it with sperm. And he went to his shelf, and, satisfied, went to bed, thinking about how to explain to the guy tomorrow that I was no longer a virgin.Tactical war - level 3
Well, if you really insist, call it Marinka - that's what I want. Actually, my name hardly interests you - well, in any case, no more than what is under the topic. And I (in the current mood) do not mind at. All. I am long enough to be responsible for myself, and not enough to get pleasure from it, Rost is not at.
