Not quite my kind of event, but it was very near by, so we decided to take a visit.

Belt Knife

Belt Knife

I bought the knife on a fair some years ago. It was a simple inexpensive, but solid knife. I intended to do some little carving on the handle and wanted to build a sheath. Latter in the style of the beautiful sheath findings from Gothland. This summer I finally found time to finish both, the carving and the sheath.

Full Armor Outfit

Full Armor Outfit

This is my current full armor outfit. The chainmal is made of punched and riveted rings. On top of it, I’m wearing a leather armor, which I made some years ago. It really needs an update. The helmet is a reconstruction of a vendel period helmet, loosely based on the Vendel 12 helmet. The sword is again my Hanwei Godfred.

Outfit Updates

I’m wearing my new linen tunic. I already showed the black/nature herringbone fabric some posts ago. The sword I wield is my Hanwei Godfred. The shield is made by another reenactor on Wikinger Tage Schleswig. I bought it many years ago. It’s fairly accurate made, even the green coloring is made of natural paint. Only the pictures are painted in waterbased modern colors.
