These tests do not sim­u­late the orig­i­nal con­di­tions in which these weapons were used. As liv­ing flesh and bone is an increas­ing­ly dif­fi­cult medi­um to test on we have cho­sen non-peri­od test­ing procedures.

From the intro to the weapon reviews at NetSword.

And the response by one of the mem­bers there, Fleadh, to a stu­dent who want­ed some­one on the board to do his home­work for him, writ­ing “i need all the infor­ma­tion i can get on weapon­ry of the 1300’s-1600’s. p.s. its for a project hurry.”

between 1300 and 1600 there were swords and maces and spears and oh yea some peo­ple had axes and some didnt…Oh yea armour..yea some peo­ple had armor…Oh yea and catapults.…Some peo­ple appar­ent­ly sharp­ened lol­lipop sticks on walls and brought them to bat­tle as well but I may be wrong about that. Oh yea…and then there was those darn abo­ri­gionees and their boomerangs who were fight­ing the 1300–1600’s eski­mos. The eski­mos were bat­tle­ing the ger­mans with their whale bone Jape­nese inspired nin­ja swords. The samu­rai from that peri­od all wore girls skirts and chopped up peasents with stain­less steel let­teropen­ers which they got from the african zulu tribes. Its inter­est­ing cos the zulus still had­nt fig­ured how to wear chi­nos and stuff for thou­sands of years and even between 1300 and 1600 had­nt changed much at all, which is a good thing because like trib­al ware­fare there was no major changes in weapons of war in europe or the amer­i­c­as through this peri­od. So to sum up every­one in the world between 1300 and 1600 had spoons which could kill in the heat of bat­tle (except them peo­ple that did­nt have spoons)
