And when matins and the first mass was done, there was seen in the churchyard, against the high altar, a great stone four square, like unto glass or sand; and in midst thereof was stuck a fair sword naked by the point, and letters there were written in ivory about the sword that said “TYGH,” which meaneth “Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone is rightwise king born of all England.”

    Reminds me of “Stikfas”.
    Stikfas are more rounded looking though, so this might be a competing product.

    I have a Stikfas guy on my desk that my wife game a couple of years ago.
    Mine carries a quarterstaff, although it came with some edged weapons as well.

    I must have one of those tiny men. They look amazing.

    I was actually thinking the same thing. I have a huge battle of them splayed across my desk.
    BTW, I love the battle monk model you have.
