There was  a tall man with a fair and noble face, dark-haired and grey-eyed, proud and stern of glance. His garments were rich, and his cloak was lined with fur and he had a collar of silver in which a single white stone was set; his locks were shorn about his shoulders. On a baldric he wore a great horn tipped with silver that now was laid upon his knees

The Bilbo Sword
Contrary to the… Lord of the Rings fans belief, the bilbo sword is a type of 16th century, cut-and-thrust sword or small rapier formerly popular in America. These weapons have well-tempered and flexible blades and were very popular aboard ships, where they were used in a similar role to that of the cutlass.
The bilbo term, Basque: Labana Bizkaitarra, Spanish: daga vizcaína (Biscayne dagger), probably comes from the Basque city of Bilbao, where a significant number of them were made and exported to the New World. These swords were also sold to merchants of every European nation, including England.
Another name theory is that the Bilbo was an old name for a sword, particularly a rapier sword, in use around the 16th century. Nevertheless, the term is an English catch-all word used to very generally refer to the "utilitarian" cup-hilt swords, often found all over America.
The characteristic form of the sword features a crossguard and knucklebow with swollen finials en suite with the pommel, while guard can be in shell guards or cup form. The Bilbo sword is usually broad, double-edged blade of hexagonal cross-section at the forte, becoming lenticular at midpoint and continuing to the tip.
Having an overall length that varies (usually around 90 cm), these swords were very practical and comparatively unadorned. Sometimes the grip was, more often than wood, covered with wire. They seem to have survived better in America probably because in the colonies these were better taken care of, since they were more difficult to acquire, and thus more valuable.

Anonymous said: What do you as a boy think modestly is? I, as a girl and obviously, know what I think. Just curious to see another opinion.

"In 1 Timothy 2:9-10, the apostle Paul writes “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.” The Greek word translated “modesty” here is kosmios. Derived from kosmos (the universe), it signifies orderliness, self-control and appropriateness. It appears only twice in the New Testament, and interestingly, its second usage refers specifically to men (1 Timothy 3:2). In fact, nearly all of the Bible’s instructions regarding modest clothing refer not to sexuality, but rather materialism (Isaiah 3:16-23, 1 Timothy 2:9-12, 1 Peter 3:3). Writers in both the Old Testament and New Testament express grave concern when the people of God flaunt their wealth by buying expensive clothes and jewelry while many of their neighbors suffered in poverty. (Ironically, I’ve heard dozens of sermons about keeping my legs and my cleavage out of sight, but not one about ensuring my jewelry was not acquired through unjust or exploitive trade practices—which would be much more in keeping with biblical teachings on modesty.)

And so biblical modesty isn’t about managing the sexual impulses of other people; it’s about cultivating humility, propriety and deference within ourselves.”
