NOTE - I've started to update this section with a new Jokers with Swords section. It starts with a video of the 85 jokers now in this section
I have about 61 in this category (updated number in July 2018) of jesters with weapons. But there are a good numbers that could be in this section: I raise some interesting and tricky questions about categories in this article! Don't be scared, read on!
I'm not sure what you call the long weapon in this jolly joker's hand. Could it be a medieval pole axe, some sort of spear, or a quarterstaff? (I'm lost looking around websites with medieval weaponry. I'm a lover not a fighter.) His sword is his sheath.
Update: a Ronald Kruijmel just told me on Facebook that this is probably a "halbard" (he used the Dutch word so there's room for confusion).
The shield of this ferocious green fighter shows that he fights for rights of hearts, spades, clubs, and diamonds, regardless of their color.
I put that guy (above) on this page (below) of Edwardian era black and and white retro designs. My thinking is that while he does have a sword, in fact is using the sword, I have him in the old black and white turn-of-the-century section and NOT in the sword section because it feels more stylistically coherent to me.
The wrestler shot is in a history section that contains statues and some architecture. What do other joker collectors do about categories?
More sworded jokers from the history section. This is driving me crazy!!! I might need to rethink my categories!
And another historical joker with a sword who is in the history section, not the sword section. I think the answer has to be that the sword section is made up of simple design jokers (of vector art for people who think that way), not paintings or statues or photographs. No modern fighters. Wheh! Figured it out.
Jokers: Swords and Fighter Summary. Below are the 48 jokers currently in the jokers - swords and fighting section.
Or related to standing jokers?
Or jokers of history? (OOPS, just realized that I'm years later posting about how I've split the Real People jokers inter entertainment, statues, history, and others. Stay tuned!!!)
