I had the great privilege of working with Hank when I ran Paladin Press' video department. He was an amazing combination of a true Southern Gentleman, a worldly scholar, and one of the sneakiest and most skilled bladesmen I've ever met. His historical knowledge of knives, swords, and other arms was only surpassed by his in-depth understanding of how they actually worked in use. He was an amazing man and his books and videos belong in the library of every serious student of arms and armor. I miss him.
