Thumbs up Two new friends

The longer one is the second longest spear I have but has the longest blade not including the socket part, at 36" or approx 92mm. The mask is just to avoid making you all insanely jealous of my good looks. I snaffled them at an auction not too far from my home. I thought I would not get them but I now think they went peanuts. Nice!

I have just had a thought the mask looks very much like a donkey or ass some sort of beast of burden. I will bet that a street name like donkey is a little more exciting. You could just call me Horse .

Default "Sir" Horse

As long as you're carrying those spears and wearing that mask "ass" is out of the question so "Sir Horse" it is.
