In this video I discuss the tendency of many beginners to throw quick, inefficient cuts with little rotation, and why I don't consider that martially viable with regards to historical combat. This is specifically about dedicated attacks to the opponent, as opposed to blade displacements and other actions not intended to directly land a hit.

"Kom deg vekk med driten!"

Trygve Tryhardsen is back... This is the continuation of a parody video I made way back in 2012, titled "How Norwegian Vikings Deal with Technology". Now in much better image quality and with fancier editing.

No hard drives, cameras, or phones were harmed during the making of this video... at least no functioning ones. ;)

Here is my perspective on testing reproductions of historical arms and armor, what I expect of them, and why. I don't claim to be an expert, and I like to keep an open mind with regards to constructive criticism, so feel to let me know how you think my tests and reviews could be improved.

Overall I think that a reproduction, especially in the $500+ range should be able to do what historical originals were expected to, especially considering the superior quality of modern materials.

Check out the special guest in this collab video. :)
https://www.youtube.com/user/shadmbrooks

This is a high quality reproduction of an Oakeshott Type XVIIIb longsword (15th-16th century), which has a slender, strongly tapered point for thrusting into the gaps of plate armor. Similar to an Estoc, except that it has an edge and a different blade cross-section. As usual I talk about the handling, fit & finish, and the results of my testing.

A good opportunity to explain why fantasy double spears with short handles are not terribly practical. :)

Also a look at a new sword in the game, which is called "rapier" but is really more like a smallsword in terms of length and overall shape.

TABS is now officially released, and it's no less crazy than before...

The game definitely lends itself to commentary, and this time I could even sprinkle in some light historical education. :)
Apparently most of the Viking faction sucks against a mammoth, and the valkyries are just silly flap-flaps.

The move from Victoria, British Columbia to Halifax, Nova Scotia is planned for September this year (2019), and it's going to be a major game changer. The plan is to find an affordable house with a piece of land where I can set up and do videos way more efficiently. So many possibilities...

Things have overall been going reasonably well but could be better. There is always room for improvement, and I've been paying attention to the feedback you folks have given. So here is an update on what has been going on, what I've been struggling with, and what I'm planning for the future of the channel.

So you want to quadruple wield, eh?

If they were real would that be the best way to go for a 4-armed fighter, like a Shokan from Mortal Kombat, or might there be other practical combinations? How about spears, bucklers, sickles?

Just some ideas for those who like to sprinkle a bit of realism into the characters they design in fantasy RPGs.

Also feel free to make suggestions for how to do this type of video. Things like better framing, how to rate and categorize, how to keep up with comments, etc. Do you like having all historical arms mixed together or would you prefer seeing them grouped, like single-handed / two-handed, swords, polearms, etc?

Educational entertainment focused mainly on historical arms and armor as well as knives / tools, firearms, bows, and crossbows. I'm not claiming to be an expert, I'm just here to share my passion, debunk common misconceptions, give buyer's advice, and make hard working folks forget about the daily grind for a while.
