My Favorite Photos: Renaissance Knights

During our trip to the Renaissance Faire, we saw these two knights in a sword duel. It was pretty cool to see them in "battle". Afterwards they started talking to the crowd and explained that they put a lot of effort in the historical accuracy of knights and their sword styles.

  1. Here in Edmonton, we have the Knights of the Northern Realm who put on a fair once or twice a year and stage sword battles etc. Always fun!

  10. This is so fun. When we went, and I don't know what it's called, but two guys on horses, running towards ea other with swords or something, trying to knock the other off....it was scary but fun to watch.

  11. this year I was promoted to blacksmith assistant the the local Ren
    I was surprised how many people wanted authentic swords
    and I was scared by the fact our duelists were having to bring in armor for repairs they sustained while fighting
    I just couldn't help but think someone was going to die, though thankfully no one did
    I think our Ren is a little too lax, its stupid dangerous
    but I appreciate that everyone is literally willing to bleed for our entertainment
