: Greetings & Salutations,
: I have never posted on this forum before, so I hope this is not a totally inappropriate question. I resently saw the film "The Patriot" and took note to the way the main character fought with his knife & tomahawk, and to the fact that it was simular to the way in which those weapons were used in LOTM. My question is dose anyone here know if this was based on accounts of the way these weapons were used at that time or just what the fight coordinator thaught it would look like. Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm asking because of my intrest in this period, archeaology, and hoplology. Thankyou all.
: Your Humble Servant,
The way Mel used the knife and tomahwk in "The Patriot" was totally awesome. I couldn't wait for him to bring out the hawk again.
Sorry this isn't an answer to your question, Benjamin. I'll bet Dr. Uncle Mark or Seamus will help you out. I hope so. I'd like to know the answer, too.
(You will be on call during your "vacation", right, Dr. Uncle Mark?)
