Sword and Ink
Explorations of a fencer and scribe

Greetings! This site is meant to document my journeys through historical fencing and historical art. 

Within the Society for Creative Anachronism, I portray Demetrios Argyros, a late 15th century (notionally 1490) Greco-Italian. He is part of the emigre Byzantine Greek population that fled to Venice following the 1453 capture of Constantinople. While he is a scribe by trade, he also trains as a swordsman and frequently throws in with adventuring condottieri seeking coin and glory.

This site is very much a work in progress and a living repository, so please keep checking in.
