Right Today Pommels Tomorrow The World, What Is

Apana policy is the sticky outfit On the end of the hilt Okay now I was watching quite a highbrow quiz here in Britain called mastermind and on that one of the questions in the general knowledge round was to name the functions of the Pommel. I think they actually say names of three functions and I have to say I disagreed with the supposedly correct answer as given by the quiz master one of the uses I definitely agree with its grip Yes if you want something to stop it slipping out of your hand. You want grip and this is very important with weapon. Of course the Pommel definitely helps give you grip another one. He said it was I thought was just a stupid reason was its to hold the hilt on no UK didn’t you add a Pommel.

To Hold The Hilt Off With The

pole. This happens to be the last bit of the hill so well. There was the last bit of the hill that’s going to be the thing which holds the hilt on yeah It’s going to act as a washer you’re going to rip it over the tangle whatever that if you know you don’t add the pop that’s a stupid reason. I’m sorry but that was just silly and the third one is the most important. The third reason was that it was to counter act as a counterweight to the blade.

No It Isnt Look At This

pommel. It’s made of wood okay. It’s got a metal cap, but it’s principally wood very light. Most pommels are made out of light materials wood ivory those other things bone they’re not made out of lead or even steal something steal magical time. There are exceptions however, and this is where I think most people get confused you see this pommel here.

This That Is Heavy That Is A Counterweight.

This is a fencing foil okay a modern sporting fencing for by the way if ever you want to good noise. Oh yes use a fencing foil consists of square cross-section fizzies through the air. I think that’s what low sound effects people use for getting master the sound anyway enough topic there now with a fencing foil yes very definitely. It is a counterweight.

The Fencing Foil Is Used As A

thrusting weapon you parry with it and then you’re going to try to get your point back on target as quickly you possibly can so a counterweight back here makes it possible to to make these movements very very quick and easily you don’t actually have to be able to hack. Any force with one of these you don’t need to and so you don’t Now there are very late sword very late medieval swords and of course, but when you get into rapier. This is pretending to be a Renaissance period Rabia. Those pommels were counterweights to the blade, but most pommels. The very significant majority polls were not counterweights to the blade and now you really don’t want a counterweight to the plate.

This Is A One-Handed Sword Okay.

I want to be able to chop you with this yeah. I want to be able to chop you what and it’s quite likely that you’re going to try to put a shield in the way. So I’m gonna have to try and get round your shield. So if I can with just the action of my wrist perhaps back slash forward slash whatever just the action of my wrists.

I Can Put In A Really Really Hefty

blow whack? Then I can do some real damage, but if I’ve got a counterweight here that takes the force out of my blow. I want this to be blade heavy. I want this to be a big iron bar coming down lock onto you and doing your art of harm and a counterweighted blade will take the punch out of my blow and if you want to do a thought experiment imagine a light stick with a heavy weight on in like a mace with you. You really can reach around the shield or really wash give someone quite quite a hit with that whereas if you mentioned holding a hammer only yeah okay.

Ill Get A Hang On Theres

just one over here okay so imagine holding the hammer there and hitting someone a big kid no no no no. You want to hit them like that don’t you whack to do them damage well It’s the same sort of thing with a sword. You want the light pummel and the heavy blade to do someone a lot of hacking damage. There’s another reason that you don’t want a heavy pommel.

If This Is A Counterweight.

Then if I push here it’s very easy to push the blade out of the way because there’s this counterweight helping me do this so if you’ve got a sword like that I want to knock your sword aside if you’ve got a counterweighted puddle thanks beating it’s going to be really easy. Whereas if I don’t have a counted weighted Pole and I’ve got this heavy blade and I put my blade like that and you come clacking against it well. It’s gonna your blade and mine are going to meet your blade.

Finally Going To Meet Tang And

if you cut if you’ve got the counterweighted pommel and I haven’t I’m going to knock your sword out of the way and then I’ve got you sunshine so only very late swords, which we not used with shields had counterweighted pummels. The Romans the ancient Greeks, the all the ancient people the Celts there well right up. I mean pretty much everyone right up until very late medieval period did not have counterweighted poles so there.
