Historical Joust in Australia.

The St. Ives Medieval Faire was run for the second year this weekend past. This year the joust was an historical solids joust. This is the fourth time these have been run down here. I organised the last 3 but Andrew McKinnon organised this one. The jousters were from Australia- Phil Leitch, Luke Bin...

Balsa Jousting

I thought I would move the jousting stuff over here Mark, rather than hijack Jorges post on 17thC spurs. Mark Griffin said I laugh when the novice (or mad and should know better) jousters say 'I'd never use solids'. Because, my dear fellow, you are already. What the F gets the balsa bit to you? And ...

Re: How to use lances

This pass was with grapers and arrets but the lances were cut down tapered solid lances with solid balsa tips in them. I have not engaged my arret correctly with the graper, (it is sitting off my arret and slams back into it) and the impact is a surprise as none of us expected to be breaking the sol...

Nice and interesting. How thick did you end up having the main plate and reinforce done in?

Re: The Red Knight

I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next in the series. I have been chatting to the author and he is a good guy who is really into the mechanics of what it is to be a man at arms. It was nice to read a book where armour does what it is supposed to do! I wish they would make a movie or...

Re: Anglo Saxons at Stoke Museum

Just gorgeous looking.

I've never really been into Anglo Saxon. I think from seeing so much bad generic stuff done and called Anglo Saxon, but you guys just look great.

This is us (Full Tilt) jousting in the middle of Central Station (main train station in Sydney) for an ad filmed on Friday night. I am going away from the camera and Phil is coming towards it.

Hi Jason, I have had good results with pine, so I'll be making some up to test this weekend. My coronel is back at the armourers being so he can make more of them.

The beauty of 13thC lances is that they are straight sided and not overly thick. We are thinking something around 32mm diameter.

Thanks Andy, he is a very good boy.

He is a thoroughbred that Michelle picked up at a sale last year. He took to the shooting like he had been doing it all his life.


He looks a million dollars under saddle and is flash looking when I am in kit.
