Default Re: thoughts

i think puffer is correct , many times these works were simply show pieces . However other times they were used . Pop documents many examples of highly ornate wheel locks that show the corrosion and patina of use .
Also many time these were weapons specifically done for royalty others not . Most certainly as he said they probably were not weapons for the common man though through time they found their way into the hands of the common people .
Puffer would you have any documentation of celtic type engravings done or period weapons ?
