    Search Youtube for Skallagrim. He has done various weapon demonstrations on butted and riveted mail; both patches and byrnies, often over padding and/or ballistic gel dummies. In short, while still not truly scientific (which he has both the care and the class to point out), much better than those that simply drape mail over a log, or a wooden stand. You might get some good stills from closeup shots of the aftermath. ThegnThrand is another to look at as well.

    You're not likely to find pictures of actual original chain that has been damaged by weapons. It was generally either repaired quite quickly, or chopped up and used in other pieces. I would say just do what feels right to you, since you aren't going for historical accuracy anyway. Maybe just throw a Wolverine slash on it and have done?

    Still need a name for this beauty. Caged using modified Celtic labyrinth style weave then switched to my supernova weave (yes mine) to finish.

    Helm Flower. Rivoli caged in my own design (didn't use a tut or template, so I'm calling the cage mine) Outside "petals" are helm chain.
