Did you fashion the helmet yourself? Looks like fine metal work. I'm partial to the axe, but then again, I'm Canadian...

I remember that from my punk rock days, ah the angst of youth! But slam dancing with axes and swords, hmmm :???:
Looks like some take it pretty serious and it gets out of hand. Anyone ever loose a tooth, an eye, or limb?

That looks more convincing than most movies I've ever seen.

When I've seen this kind of thing here, it's usually done with hockey sticks wrapped with foam and duct tape. That's some pretty hardcore commitment in gear! What's a shirt of chain mail go for these days?

My chinmail is riveted, and is around 450 euros but that was a friend price. Quite heavy piece to at around 15 kg. The planked shield from pine wood and canvas I made myself and comes in at around 5 kg. Helmet another 1-2 kg. Gambeson (arming vest) 4 kg. Axe sword spear leather armour for underarms and hands and so on. = I need to train a lot to wear this shit and do anything but crawl. :wink: Some people do get hurt, but mostly because they don't wear enough protection or more likely they did not train enough and don't know how to defend themselves. Had a few years of it, so happy found my way back. Never felt more alive than now. :twisted:

Got to try out some easterstyle (contact fencing) at Moesgaard this year where they do mostly soft hit western style.I need a lot to practise before I am any good. A bit passive, but to good hits. I am front right (shield with intricate design).
