Madu (also known as a Maru or Singauta)
Time Period: 18th-19th century
Location: India
Common Construction: Leather, iron, or steel shield with antelope horns
The madu is a type of parrying shield used in northern and central India. The central shield is typically made of leather such as elephant or rhinocerous hide, but can also be made of steel or even layers of silk. The antelope horns are tipped with steel and set at opposing angles. The madu can be inlaid with silver or gold and some are highly ornamented.

Although used by soldiers in India, the madu is primarily associated with religious mendicants named Fakirs. These holy men were not allowed to carry traditional weapons, and instead carried the "Fakir's Horns" which consists of the two antelope horns set at opposing angles. When the central shield is included, it is called a madu.

Mike,These particular brhseus came from Track of the Wolf and are part of a brush and pick set. They were actually old ones that I didn't use any more, but a customer wanted brhseus like that. I normally make my own brhseus with tin plated steel ferrules. I cut up cookie tins to get my tin plate. I ordered the horse hair online by the pound. As to the jack chain, a local hardware store that has just about everything, has all kinds of chain and cable that you can buy by the spool or they will sell it to you by the foot. If you don't have a hardware store like that local to you, then I guess you would have to buy an entire spool. Of course, it is easy to make jack chain, but not as easy as it is to buy it. If you can't find it locally, I will sell you some for $0.05 an inch plus $5 shipping.Mark Elliott http://kltukz.com [url=http://gkzuor.com]gkzuor[/url] [link=http://nvklcdjvp.com]nvklcdjvp[/link]
