These are known as the Pitcairn/Putnam pistols. According to family tradition, during the fighting on April 19, 1775, Major Pitcairn lost control of his horse which bolted with his saddle bags and a fine pair of pistols. The horse was recovered and the pistols were given to Major Israel Putnam. In 1879 they were donated to the town of Lexington.
It’s highly unlikely that these pistols actually belonged to Pitcairn though. For one thing the heraldic crest on the pistols belong to the Crosbie family, and Captain William Crosbie was listed among the wounded that day. 
Lots of stories got attached to Pitcairn because he was in command of the men on Lexington that day, so he was someone that New Englanders loved to hate. 
They’re still a beautiful pair of pistols with important historical importance because of their connection to the fighting on April 19, 1775, to Israel Putnam, and to the Revolutionary War.

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

I’m gonna go ahead and put this under the resources tag for reenactors, cosplayers, Rennies and SCA-ers!

(Just a Few of) The Federal Benefits of Marriage Equality

What we didn’t have yesterday.

THIS IS WHY IT’S HUGE

You mean people didn’t used to qualify for these things?

Married people qualify for these things. Which means in most states, same-sex couples do not.

That’s the joke! Ha ha haHaHaHA! Ha… ha…

I’m sad, now.

But in all seriousness, I’m so happy this is getting around even more. I was excited when I compiled this, though I have to admit, I was a little more optimistic that it would either be 1. legal in all states by now, and/or 2. common knowledge for people. Yes, our rights are significantly less than your average person and it does indeed suck. Our state still inflicts a shitton of red tape upon K’s and my marriage, and we still don’t have basic rights. Tax season is a goddamned nightmare, and that’s the least of our worries in regards to state laws and regulations.
