At the medieval tournament, I got to look through an art gallery full of home-forged armor and weapons such as this pauldron and dagger. With the dagger, I liked the design of its ivory hilt yet I thought the cross guard could have used more work. With the pauldron, I liked the gold and intricate engravings as well as the segmented plates. I also found a Viking seax dagger as well. Since I will be drawing inspiration from my heritage for my fantasy book, I am thinking of looking into the look of the seax dagger.
