    Dear friends,

    My new artilce on the Russian smith Mr. Mr. Ivan Kirpichev is online. Please see what Mr. Kirpichev is capable of doing. The pattern of the crucible steel made by Kirpichev exactly matches the pattern of old Persian crucible steel blades.

    Dear friends,

    I was truly happy and honored to see that Dr. Daniel Varisco, Chair of Anthropology and Director of Middle Eastern and Central Asia Studies at Hofstra recommends my book in the magazine Tabsir. I would like to thank Dr. Varisco for his kind support:

    Evidence of a Defining Book in the Study of Arms and Armor

    Manoucher,

    I have stated this several times, but I will state it again: the mountain of evidence, historic facts, incredible amounts of research, and the overwhelming support from the international academic and scientific community are more than enough to convince even the most stubborn of people that Arms and Armor from Iran is the defining book in arms and armor study of our time. I challenge anyone to come here and prove otherwise.

    It is about time that such a defining book of great worth has emerged for all honest and responsible parties to read. And, in addition to other texts, this is another example of what a book on arms and armor should be. This should be an indication, as well, that wasteful books like Islamic Weapons are useless in arriving at any form of truth about weapons and/or culture.

    Check it out, everyone!

    The very famous bookstore and specialist of the U.K., Ken Trotman, highly praises Arms and Armor from Iran: The Bronze Age to the End of the Qajar Period in this catalog, which is distributed worldwide. What a success! As decribed in the catalog, "This is simply the ultimate study in arms and armour preserved in Iran from ancient times through the height of the Persian Empire." The reviewer recommends it "unhesitatingly."

    It is obvious for all evidence that Manoucher's book is well accepted and celebrated throughout the academic world. Now, it should be obvious that businesses and, especially, collectors of arms and armor all agree that this book is, indeed, the defining text of arms and armor study of the modern day and for a long time to come.

    Here is the front page from the catalog. Following this is the review page. Simply put, no other collector or book can challenge this text: they must simply measure themselves to it. I am very proud to have been a part of this project, and, as one can see, the results are proof of success.

    It warms my heart to hear that both academics and lay readers are unanimous in their enthusiasm for a work which used high critical standards. This proves that the people DEMAND high quality scholarship, and will no longer be satisfied with the un-critical, un-academic approach that has for so long passed as "research" in our field.

    Let this be a wake-up call to those few among us who still oppose critical thinking: You must raise your standards in order to remain relevant. The field of arms and armor is moving forward and we want you to be part of that process, but you must step up your game if that's to happen. We invite you to do so, in a spirit of scholarship and friendship.

    Dear friends,

    Thank you very much for your continuous support, which I enjoy not only on this wonderful website, but on many other websites and also academic community. Thank you all.

    Ms. Shabnam Rezaei, the editor-in-chief of Persian Mirror has reviewed my book. For your information Persian Mirror has won the price of the best electronic magazine in WAALM: PersianMirror - Shabnam Rezaei Best Electronic Magazine

    http://www.persianmirror.com/Article...ubCategory=229

    Ms. Rezaei is not only a very good jornalist, but she is also known for her entreprenuerial skills. Ms. Rezaei is the co-producer of "Babak and friends" which stands for the cultural underding and mutual understanding between different cultures, in this case Iranian and American:

    Ms. Rezaei is also working on other projects for the understanding of Korean and Arab culture. Also listen carefully to the CNN anchor Ms. Asieh Namdar (an Iranian American) who talks about the mutual understanding:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmKCXgN4ocg

    IN our days where biases are prevalent everywhere, I am proud that someone like Ms. Rezaei has reviewed my book.

    Ms Rezaei also appeared on Voice of America:

    Another interview on CNN:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FDmN...elated&search=

    Ms. Rezaei also appeared on NBC.

    Now here is her review of my book. I would like to thank Ms. Rezaei for her support:

    Dr. Mr. Manouchehr,
    I ran across the photos from your MIT lecture online today http://isg-mit.org/lecture/?id=309&cat=past . Absolutely beautiful. I am a newcomer to the study of weapons but have studied Islamic art aesthetics for sometime. To see the same beauty applied to weapons is while not surprising a delightful discovery for me as I will now be able to bring one discipline in line with another. I was also very pleased to realize that you were a scholar with this forum.
    Forgive my poor arabic but,
    Jazak allu khair, the best among us are those with the most knowledge.

    Dear friends,

    I am really honored and proud to announce that the renowned Italian scholar Ms. Vanna Scolari Ghiringhelli has written a review on my book in Italian in the scholarly magazine Quaderni Asiatici 76. This is a very prestigious magazine and I am really happy and honored that Ms. Scolari has written a review of my book.

    Please note that Ms. Scolari teaches Hindi language at the University of Milan, has extensive knowledge on Indian art. Additionally, she is an expert on Indonasian Kris and has publsihed many books and articles in the field of Indonasian kris.

    This is really a true honor. Read more about Ms. Scolari here. Note that the Italian original review is different from the English version written by Ms. Scolari. There are two reviews. I would like to thank Ms. Scolari again.

    Kind regards

    Dear friends,

    My publisher separated the Italian and English reviews as they are two different ones. For the extract of the Italian review see:

    For the English review of Ms. Scolari, please see:

    I would like to thank Ms. Scolari for her support.

    Dear friends,

    Couple of years ago, I was involved in the reconstruction and recreation of the Reichsschwert (the so-called Saint Maurice sword) that is kept in Vienna, Austria. As many of you know this sword was used for coronation of German emperors and kings over centuries. As you will see in the following article, we were provided with all the dimensions and as well the pictures. Additionally, the very well-researched book "Das Reichsschwert" was used for the recreation. You can find my article here:

    Thank you very much Greg. A big part of the article is missing on how the sword was made by the German team. Also references. Sorry for this. I already contacted the editor-in-chief.

    The article needed to be divided in two parts as I was informed. Please note that the pictures are also divided:

    Those are very good articles, Manoucher. The blades in the third link remind me of a Chinese dao.

    Sincerely,
