At the recent Equine Affaire in Ohio, Charlie Andrews of the Knights of Mayhem got to play with a steampunk lance. The lance was designed by Kimber Spahr, brother to jouster Andre Renier. When asked about creating a steampunk lance, he replied:
"I got into steampunk almost 5 years ago and have built a few projects - my brother jousts - I couldn't resist." – Kimber Spahr
Kimbar said that he worked on the lance off and on for about three months before bringing it to show at the Equine Affaire.
