    Engraved and Gilt Partisan

    • Dating: late 17th century

    The weapon has an iron head with a large, straight-edged cusp-blade, ribbed at the centre, with wings, tapering socket provided with rings at both edges, while the upper one is smooth with three rings.

    The surface of the lower half of the blade blade, from its half to the socket, is decorated with engravings and remains of gilding; featuring symmetric effigies of flowers, grotesque masks and spirals, on dotted ground.

Do you miss Arne? We all do. Luckily, we’ll see more of Tadhg Murphy next year. He’s been cast in season 2 of the hit new series Black Sails, in the role of Ned Low. You can see our badass friend in the new trailers: (x) (x) 

this means i should give Black Sails another try. I found it extremely boring, tbh. But usually i love pirates…

It started out very strong, but halfway through it just went to shit. I was debating s2. It stands a better chance now!

Just tried to rewatch first episode… I decided to start with season two and just go read the plot summary on wikipedia for s1

    image

    I hate inconstancy - I loathe, detest,
    Abhor, condemn, abjure the mortal made
    Of such quicksilver clay that in his breast
    No permanent foundation can be laid.

    ~ Lord Byron
