The first Black Knight I heard of was supposed to have been a Knight of the Round Table who wanted the throne of Arthur for himself. He was found out though by other members of that group who told Arthur of his duplicity. Arthur banished him and so he donned the armor that he had blackened, and began a campaign of raids against the people of Arthur's realm. Of course all of this is legend, and there is just not enough written history to say whether there is much truth to it or not.


According to a documentary I watched on the History channel, the Legend of Arthur may have been based on a Briton who fought for a time for Rome, and was given the name Arturo or some such by the Romans. He was betrayed by the Romans who always had a bad habit of not living up to their part of any bargain, and that was why he turned against them.


In one incident he supposedly lured the Romans onto a frozen river and he had someone use a battle Hammer to crack the ice and cause the Romans to fall through. A bit fitting for the cold way they treated their allies. Of course this too might just be legend.

Even if they act for a right cause, the black knights are considered as outlaws by the official power and then, they're constantly tracked, which doesn't help to have a long life.
Most of time, they're stuck in a dilemma. On one hand, they need to claim why they act as they do to be understood and on the other hand, they need to hide to avoid to get caught.

Yes, pretty much.

You should see if you can find something about the way Samurai Swords are forged. Without a doubt those are the best swords ever made. There is an edge hardening technique they use in which they smear a substance on the edge that has carbon of some type in it, and when it is fired and quenched, if done right it creates that characteristic curve to the blade.


Got a suggestion for a name now that I think might be a good one:
Samurai Knight

I own a book about how Samurai swords are forged. The 'substance' is a type of pure clay that is mixed with ashes.

Thanks Rayvn. I was not 100% on what the substance was, so I did not want to hazard a guess. :thud:

Beeswax and oil mixed together and applied to metal then heated turns black and protects the metal from rust.
This is quite possibly how the black knight armor was treated. It is also where the term "blackmail" comes from. During a battle if you were taken prisoner and you were far enough up the food chain to be ransomed your mail (armor made from metal rings) was treated in this way then sent off to who ever was likely to pay to get you back in one piece.

At lest that's roughly what I remember being told

And you probably got it from a person who knows a lot more about it that we do sitting here. I know a lot of those guys that go to those fairs are all into the history of whatever it is they're doing/being.

Thank you for sharing that Dreamer!

That's really interesting! I love hearing about this kind of thing. It is a plausible explanation, for sure!
